This recipe of French Toast with berry compote is great for cooking outside or in a van. The perfect fuel for hiking or biking. We serve ours with chicken sausage for extra protein and yumminess! Otherwise it is a great vegetarian meal. You could definitely mix it up and use any type of bread or even waffles for the french toast part!

Berry Compote is pretty easy to make in the van too. Here’s how we make ours, simmer some fresh berries with a bit of sugar on a pot for 15-20 minutes until to your desired consistency.

Alternatively here’s a really simple recipe for a berry compote that can be made on the stove top in minutes, and only needs 3 ingredients!

Meat Based
This easy recipe works with many types of bread. We used Trader Joes’ Maple Streusel Bread. This tender, fluffy and indulgent recipe comes together so quickly and you can serve it with a side of breakfast sausage for a sweet and salty flavor. We topped ours with a homemade Berry Compote. Simmer some fresh berries with a bit of sugar on a pot for 15-20 minutes until to your desired consistency. Enjoy!
