How to Cook an Egg with Oranges and Onions at a Campsite

Open campfire cooking is part of outdoor treks. Families and friends recall memories of delicious and unique ways to prepare breakfast. Here we cook an egg in two unique ways. One method is to cook the egg inside an onion. We take a fresh onion and cut about a quarter of the top off ... save this top as you will use it later. Then ream out the inside of the onion. Now crack the egg into the hole in the onion. Replace the top on the onion, and wrap it in aluminum foil. Place this wrap into the coals of the fire, or hang it over the open flames. Wait for 15 to 20 minutes or until anxious to check the cooking status of the onion/egg. The cooked egg will have a delightfully slight onion taste. Now eat the tasty cooked onion. 

The second method uses an orange. We cut the top off similar to the onion. Now take a spoon and ream out the inside of the orange ... eating it for your daily vitamin C. Now, crack the egg into the orange, and replace the orange cap. Wrap the orange and egg in aluminum foil like the onion, and surround this package with embers in the open campfire. Some may choose to hang or balance the packet over the open flames. Comparable to cooking the onion/egg, wait 15 to 20 minutes, or until anxious to check. The result will be a delicious egg with a slight orange taste.

An unforeseen benefit for the regular cook, is most of the attendees make their own breakfast!

Lots of fun for you and your family and lifelong memories of your trip.
