Goat Cheese Honey Grits

Putting a sweet spin on a Southern classic, this recipe is perfect for a fun and easy to prepare for brunch. To round out brunch, we also have a foolproof, hiker-friendly beermosa. Although a touch unorthodox, we guarantee this brunch will be a hit at your next basecamp gathering or car camping excursion.

We recommend stone ground grits instead of instant grits, or more accurately, instant disappointment grits. We went with Geechie Boy Mill grits, an awesome local-to-us mill based out of Edisto Island, SC.

We opted for oat milk instead of traditional dairy or heavy cream to reinforce that creamy, subtly sweet decadence that this recipe delivers.


  • 1 cup stone ground grits
  • 1 cup of blackberries
  • 6 oz. goat cheese
  •  1/4 cup of honey
  • 6 cups oat milk
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of granola
  • salt to taste
  • camp stove
  • pot with lid
  • spatula and knife
  • bowls and spoons


Bring water and oat milk to a boil, add grits, and reduce to a simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally until grits reach your desired texture. This may take anywhere from 15-30 minutes. Once cooked, add goat cheese and honey to taste. Stir until combined, then plate and top with blackberries and granola. Drizzle as much honey as necessary.

No pre adventure breakfast is complete without a Stasher bag of Methodical Coffee and an Aeropress.

If the morning is extra cold, feel free to add a splash of your favorite hooch. We won't judge.


This one is pretty self-explanatory. 2 parts beer, 1 part juice. We chose grapefruit juice and "Slow Chill," a Vienna-Style Lager from Oskar Blues. Get creative, pair any citrus juice with your favorite light, easy-drinkin' beer. We recommend something in the lager, pilsner family.

We added Cara Cara oranges for a little fun. This variety is a bit sweeter and less acidic than your traditional navel orange and are also seedless.

Cooking outdoors is as much about the people you sit down with as it is about the food, so don’t get too hung up on the details. Enjoy the process, the food, and most importantly, the people you're with.
