Early morning coffee and a rusk/ fruit/biccies keep us going till about 11 am then a full slap up skottel bacon,eggs,mushrooms and toast or roosterbrood normally get us through to our evening braai.

Other days we have the coffee do a quick morning drive then head back to camp or a picnic spot...Olifants and Tshokwane being are most favorites for one of their breakfast offered on the menu.Satara used to do a mean and totally deeelish toasted bacon,egg and cheese sandwich which we would devour sitting outside on the covered verandah.

Sometimes we have a cook-up at a breakfast spot, but in Summer when it is hot I find a lite breakfast is the best.

Fruit salad , Muesli and yoghart with some honey works a treat.

KIds always enjoy pancakes (and making them).

Woolworths sell a pack of 20 pancakes (individually wrapped) that just need a quick fry in a little butter.
Normally I take 2 frying pans and butter to a picnic spot. Served with honey and Cinnamon ... delicious !

We go the whole hog. Our brunch menu is : bacon, sausages, tinned mushrooms, tinned baked beans, fried onion rings, fried potato cakes and French toast (used to be fried eggs and toast but we broke so many eggs, we opted for French toast).

We usually only get to the picnic site at 11/11.30, so are pretty hungry by then.

We don't go the whole hog anymore (used to do that when we had the kids with us :D ), but I love watching others do that 8) and am amazed by the yummy spread of condiments/jams/sauces/etc that appear on the picnic tables :D

WE always have Grapenuts and coffee before we go out whatever time. Maybe a brown roll and ham and cheese for lunch and the maybe a wors braai at supper time with a salad .Not much but any more and I don't feel nice . But all those delish breakfasts you make makes my mouth water so.

Isinkwe, oh yes definitely. After the rusks and coffee at dark thirty, we follow up with one of those fantastic brunches at a picnic site. Just wish we could rent one of those flat bottomed/paella type pans for the skottel though. Much better than the original skottel dish. We can't bring such a big and heavy thing over on the plane in our luggage though ..... drat!!!! So looking forward to these fabulous breakfasts in Kruger next month!!!
