Jam, peanut butter, chocolate spread, fried eggs, scrambled egg and more are just some of the toppings you can put on toast for a tasty start to the day.

3. Breakfast Omelette

Crack a few eggs, give them a whip, pour into you skillet and cook up the ultimate breakfast omelette with a filling of your choice. For a fast breakfast, a basic egg omelette is the order of the day. For added flavour, try bacon or cheese as a filling for a delicious way to start the day.

4. Breakfast Burritos

6. Fruit Salad (with yoghurt)

From tin to bowl with a serving of yoghurt, a tinned fruit salad is a quick and tasty camping breakfast, plus you get one of your five a day. You can use fresh fruit, but tinned fruit keeps better when camping.

7. Cereals

The ‘go to’ campervan breakfast, cereals come in a huge variety and it’s worth packing a few different types to have to hand in a breakfast emergency – i.e. when your food supply is running low. As a campervan breakfast idea, you can break away from just adding milk to your cereals and try other toppings like yoghurt and fruit.
