Campfire Eggs

It’s the simplicity of this breakfast that makes it such a treat.

Prep time: 5 minutes  

Total time: 10 minutes  

Yield: Serves 1

Campfire Eggs


  • 1 orange
  • 2 eggs
  • Dash salt and pepper
On the trail: Cut the orange in half and eat the fruit, leaving two orange peel “bowls.” Crack one egg into each half of the orange and salt and pepper to taste. Carefully place the “bowls” on the edge of the campfire and cook for about 5 minutes, rotating the oranges with sticks as needed. Then eat your eggs right from the orange!
