First you poke a hole in the top of the egg shell. You could use a safety pin, push pin, or even a metal skewer. This allows for the heat to escape to prevent the shell from cracking under the pressure. Then you carefully place the egg in the coals of the fire (not the flame). Wait about 10 minutes for the eggs to cook. You'll see the steam escaping from the small hole and maybe even little egg whites bubbling out. Remove the eggs from the fire and let rest for at least 5 minutes before pealing the shell away.
1. Do not shake the egg before cooking... this doesn't create scrambled eggs in the shell... it creates explosive eggs.
2. Poke a big enough hole, maybe two... or the shell will crack.
3. Bring backup eggs just in case!
regular egg verses shaken egg... oops
Or just use your castiron... it is a camp cooking essential.Yum
