    On river trips where weíve got iced coolers, I sometimes make frozen Ďomelets-in-a-bagí to use in the first few days. Whip up eggs and add whatever fixinís you like, vacuum bag in single servings and freeze. Cook in the bag in simmering water. Eat out of bag.

    We donít usually cook breakfasts though and just go with a dried fruit/nut mix, or fresh fruit, granola, hard boiled eggs, bagel, smoked salmon Ö that kind of stuff. I might gnaw on some jerky if I have it.

    Been using Highground organic instant coffee for a few years. Not bad. Expensive, but goes a long way.

    I am pretty good at boiling water and heating precooked packaged meals. This is part of the selection planned for dinner along with Naan and bread.

    Of course the most important part is the dinner beverage. For my dear wife I have planned the best, California wine (aged in a cardboard box!).

    When Iím out sailing Iím on vacation. When Iím on vacation I want a real breakfast. Some fried potatoes, bacon, sausage or Taylor Ham, some eggs, toast. No problem on a single burner. Of course we have the sea swing for coffee so actually we have two burners. With the new boat we need to figure out how we will be arranging the galley. Having a sink with a drain will be a game changer. Such luxury! If I install the Origo thatís out in the boat shed we would have two burners, how fancy would that be?

    What are you folks, especially those with boat towards the smaller end doing for post meal making clean up? Scrub the pan clean while leaning over the side? Using a pan inside and surreptitiously pouring out the dirty water when nobody is looking? After making a mess out of the interior of my VW camper, I pretty much stick to boiling water in there and the confined space of my boat's cabin. Even back in my motorcycle touring days I devolved to freeze dried dinners where all I had to do was pour hot water in the bag and wait 5 minutes.

    Kedgeree. Easy on a single burner stove, can be done with one pan.

    Hard boiled eggs. Tinned fish eg tuna. Rice. Butter (lots!) turmeric

    1. Hard boil the eggs (you can use salt water for this)
    2. Rinse the pan(important!)
    3. Cook some rice with plenty of turmeric
    4. When the rice is cooked, add butter, tinned fish, shelled hard boiled eggs and mash everything together.
    5. Eat.

    Coffee. With nibbles: cheese, crackers, fruit, gorp, etc. Has to be quick, so get scooting.

    Clean up consists of
    Step 1) Eat the tortilla
    Step 2 )Use the leftover hot water in the JetBoil to wash your face and hands.
    Step 3) Finish that Theo’s chocolate bar you started before dinner and/or pour more scotch

    No need for scooting. The wind doesn’t really fill in towards midday. Relax.

    Bacon and eggs always feels like a luxury on a boat. Thin sliced potatoes fried in a skillet with an egg cracked over at the end is an easy 1-pot meal, tapatio hot sauce is the crowning glory. A can of corned beef and you can make a corned beef hash pretty easy.

    On our boat the standard breakfast is granola and yogurt. We have unlimited oats on board, and unlimited milk powder and make both our own. Not necessary for a short voyage of course. Oatmeal is also common on board, uses the same base ingredients.

    I believe in good food on a boat, it is not that hard to cook for real. Mountain house makes so much garbage as to negate any benefit in my opinion. With a few onions, potatoes, dry sausage, eggs, and tortillas you can have real food that actually smells good while cooking.

    There is no need for instant coffee. Ever. A metal insulated french press is the ticket, just pour the hot water over the grounds and 4 minutes later it's ready. Instant saves you, what exactly, that four minutes? Metal means it won't break, and insulated means your wife can have coffee 40 minutes after you and it will still be hot.

    As far as canned fish and hard boiled eggs mashed in rice.... must be a british thing. Sounds like a pretty rough start to a day to me...

    Skirlie.

    Two slices of streaky bacon (smoked if possible) chopped into small pieces
    One small onion
    Steel cut oatmeal (NOT ROLLED OATS)

    Fry the bacon until there is decent amount of rendered fat
    Lob in the chopped onion
    Stir
    Add the oatmeal and continue to stir

    Optionally add in an egg at the end.

    And we now learn that among other Brit bacon oddities they have bacon that isn’t smoked.

    Oh, we certainly do! Any butcher and indeed any supermarket will offer you:

    Unsmoked Back
    Smoked Back
    Unsmoked Streaky
    Smoked Streaky

    Only the last of the four would be recognisable to an American, I think.

    Commercial fishing we never had anything but coffee in the morn.

    However after the morn bite we put a salmon on the bbq or diesel stove.

    Lemon pepper, onions.

    Nothing fresher ever.

    Other then that i just had a chuck of elk salami and a piece of cheese.

    The really tricksie thing in Brit Bacon is avoiding the added water - this is a disgraceful practice which makes frying the bacon impossible - it can only be stewed - yuk

    What would one do with the grease that results from cooking bacon? What a mess to have onboard.

    Not mentioned so far, I think... yogurt makes for a good breakfast food. Mix in a little homemade granola and some dried fruit or berries.

    Also, fiber bars make a convenient breakfast that are extremely adaptable. We buy the ones that are low in fat and sugar. One of those and a cup of coffee can sustain me for a spell until there's time to make a bigger meal.

    The pre-cooked "microwave" bacon is super practical. No big pan full of grease.

    Cook the bacon, then fry up some sourdough in that pan. Tea is easier than coffee.

    We do this, plus 3-minute oatmeal, on our snowshoe trips. We need the calories, and relish the comfort.

    Plus peanut butter, and jam.

    Even if you use real bacon it’s no big deal to soak up the fat with a few paper towels and put it in the trash bag you tow behind in the dinghy.
