How To Cook An Egg In A Potato

Most people don’t realize that these two go together but look what you can do when you put an egg into a potato and then you throw it on a fire pit. It’s pretty amazing…

You don’t need a metal pan or spatula in order to enjoy a well-cooked egg when you’re out camping. Here’s an easy way to whip together a delicious meal next time you’re in the wild.

All you need…

  1. 1 Egg
  2. 1 Potato
  3. 1 Spoon or knife
  4. 3 Sticks or matches

NOTE: The first two minutes are preparing the fire so you can click through 2 minutes and 40 seconds to get to the part where he’s preparing the potato for the egg. Enjoy the video!

Hot Ham & Cheese on the Grill

When heading out camping for the weekend I look for easy but tasty meals to bring along. I love when I can do most of the prep work at home, like with my newest attempt!

Ingredients

  • Loaf of Italian Bread
  • 6 Cheese Slices
  • 18 Ham Slices
  • Butter

Directions

Step 1) Cut Italian Bread into 12 slices but don’t cut all the way through.

Step 2) Butter every other slice of bread

Step 3) Fold a piece of cheese in half and put between every two slices

Step 4) Place ham between cheese slices. We used three slices in each sandwich and it was proportioned well.

Step 5) Wrap in Foil

Step 6) Place over open fire for about 20 – 30 minutes and turn about halfway through.

We got 6 sandwiches out of this!

Grill Multiple Hot Dogs with a Rake

Hot dogs are a favorite around a campfire. When you have a big family or groups of friends that join you on an outing it can become a long process of cooking up all of them hot dogs. Save some time and cook several at once with a rake! I tried it out this past weekend and it worked out pretty well. I bought an extendable rake which made it pretty easy to store and cook with. The rake can get a bit heavy so you can try propping it up on the fire pit grate if needed.

Frito-Bean-Rito

This campfire recipe is a tasty one that can be tweaked and added to for a new twist each time. The Frito-Bean-Rito is one of my newest favorite things to whip up and it so simple!

Ingredients

  • Tortillas
  • Can of Refried Beans
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Chili Cheese Fritos
  • Foil – torn into squares

Directions

Step 1) Place tortilla on foil

Step 2) Spread on refried beans

Step 3) Layer on Chili Cheese Fritos and Shredded Cheese

Step 4) Roll tortilla up in burrito shape and wrap in the foil

Toss them in the cooler and throw them on the campfire when you get hungry. Leave them on the first for about 15 minutes, turning them occasionally so one side of the tortilla doesn’t harden. You can also freeze these ahead of time and let them defrost in the cooler at the campground.
