A Taste of Tradition

In Poland, breakfast is a cherished ritual, and it’s often savoured slowly with family before the day gets underway.

It’s hearty and wholesome, setting a comforting tone for the hours ahead. As travellers with Polish roots, we find nothing like a plate of these scrambled eggs to transport us right back to our childhood.

Unlike classic Aussie scrambled eggs, these ones are served with onion and Polish sausage.

Have you ever tasted a dish that feels like a hug on a plate? Well, prepare to meet your new favourite morning comfort food.

Camping Scrambled Eggs – The Magic of Polish Sausage

There’s something extraordinary about Polish sausage, or kielbasa, that makes it a standout star in this dish.

Its robust, smoky flavour, punctuated with the perfect blend of spices, brings a depth that takes these scrambled eggs from simple to sublime. And that sizzle as it cooks? It’s like music heralding a feast.

Can’t find Polish sausage? No worries! A good smoked sausage or a flavorful chorizo would make a great substitute. The key is to have a sausage that brings a rich, deep flavour to complement the eggs.

This scramble is as heartfelt as it is flavorful. The unique technique we use for the eggs creates a dish that’s silky and moist, yet thoroughly cooked—a delightful contrast to the robust flavours of the onions and sausage.
