Camping Breakfasts To Cook in the Fire

Campfire Eggs

  • Eggs
  • Oranges

Cut an orange in half at about 3/4 of the way. Remove the pulp. Try not to tear the peal. Crack two eggs open and put into orange peel, then cover with the remaining half.  Set peel filled with egg onto a bed of coals. The moisture from the orange peel will cook the egg. Add salt & pepper.

Foil Breakfast

Campfire Muffins

  • 6 oranges
  • 2 (7 oz.) packages of muffin mix (or cake mix), any flavor
  • Crasins or other dried fruit (optional)

Cut oranges in half. Scoop out the orange; set aside for later or eat on the side.  Reserve the hollow peel shells. Prepare the muffin mix according to the package directions. Fill the orange peel cups half full of batter. Wrap each one loosely with heavy duty aluminum foil. Place in hot coals, making sure that the batter side stays up. Sprinkle in a few pieces of dried fruit, if you desire. Cook 5-10 minutes until muffins are done. Makes 12 muffins.

    Have you ever tried Boil in Bag Omelets? Get heavy duty Ziplocks (freezer-quarts) Fill with eggs and what ever you like in your omelets, put in a pot of boiling water. A Sharpie will help keep them sorted as to whose is whose. The boiling action will create the perfect rolled omelet. My husband thinks it is best to put the cheese on after it is cooked because the oils make it so you can’t really tell if it is fully cooked, but I like mine a little less cooked than he does.
