Recipe of the Week: Bernie & Briar’s tortilla scramble

Each week, Let’s RV will publish one recipe each week from the RV Centennial Cookbook authored by Evada Cooper.

The book features a collection of recipes submitted by RVers themselves. The company is providing the recipes in hopes of encouraging RVers to submit more recipes to be included in a new edition expected to be published soon.

This week’s recipe was submitted by youngsters Bernie and Briar Estes, from Selma, Calif. Their family has been RVing for several years. According to the kids, their mother lets them cook this recipe because it is easy and it’s the only thing their father has ever cooked on the stove.


  • 1 dozen corn tortillas
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper (to your liking)
  • Pinch of garlic powder (optional)
  • Pinch of onion powder
  • 1/4 Cup cooking oil
  • Salsa or ketchup


Cut corn tortillas into bite-size squares. Place oil in frying pan on stove top or over campfire, or use and electric skillet and heat with medium heat. Place cut tortilla pieces into hot oil and fry until desired crispiness, stir constantly to brown both sides of tortillas pieces.

Place eggs in a bowl with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Mix with whisk until thoroughly blended. After tortillas have crisped, pour egg mixture over tortillas and cook until eggs are done, constantly flipping and stirring for even cooking. Place in bowl and serve with salsa or ketchup.

This recipe can be modified to your liking by adding real onions, bacon pieces, sausage, bell pepper, red chili or jalapenos. Kids tend to like it with ketchup, but adults prefer salsa. It’s so cheap and easy, and fills you up. Cleanup is a breeze. This is a great recipe for camping.
