Campfire eggs are a delicious and easy-to-make dish often enjoyed during camping trips or outdoor cooking adventures. Here's a basic recipe for campfire eggs:
- Eggs (as many as you need)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cooking oil or butter
- Optional ingredients like diced onions, bell peppers, cheese, or cooked bacon bits for added flavor
- Cast iron skillet or a sturdy campfire-friendly pan
- Long-handled spatula or cooking utensil
- Campfire or portable camping stove
- Prepare Your Fire:
- If you're cooking over an open campfire, make sure you have a good bed of hot coals. You can use a campfire grate or a fire ring to set up your cooking area. For safety, follow proper campfire guidelines and regulations.
- Heat the Skillet:
- Place your cast iron skillet on the coals or over your camping stove and let it heat up. Add a small amount of cooking oil or butter and let it melt and coat the bottom of the skillet.
- Crack the Eggs:
- Crack the eggs into a bowl, one at a time, and carefully slide them into the hot skillet. Be cautious not to break the yolks if you prefer them sunny-side-up.
- Sprinkle the eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper for seasoning. You can also add any optional ingredients like diced onions, bell peppers, cheese, or cooked bacon bits at this point.
- Cook to Your Preference:
- Cook the eggs over the campfire or stove until the whites are set and the yolks reach your desired level of doneness. For sunny-side-up eggs, cook them until the whites are fully set but the yolks are still runny. For over-easy or over-hard eggs, carefully flip them using a spatula and cook for an additional minute or two.
- Once the eggs are cooked to your liking, carefully slide them onto a plate using a spatula. Be mindful of the hot skillet.
- Serve your campfire eggs hot and enjoy your outdoor meal.
Campfire eggs are a versatile dish, and you can customize them with various ingredients to suit your taste. They make for a satisfying and hearty breakfast or a quick and easy meal while camping in the great outdoors.
