Camping: Eggs in a Bag

photo 13Serves 4

This is probably the most entertaining addition to our camping menu. It’s very easy and best of all, there are no dishes to be cleaned afterwards, which in itself is a great selling point for any hot camping food.

4 paper bags
4 eggs
8 strips of fatty bacon
Four sticks

Cut each slice of bacon in half and cover the bottom of each bag with the four pieces.
Crack an egg into each bag.
Add a pinch of salt and some cracked pepper.
Carefully fold the top of the paper bag down 2 times.
Poke hole into the thick part of the bag – with a knife or scissors – and push stick through.
Position bag over the fire, close enough to get plenty of heat but far enough away so that it does not catch fire.
Wait for about 5-10 minutes, depending on the heat of the fire, until bacon is sizzling and egg is done.
Pull open bag and enjoy.
