Heading out on a camping trip is an exciting and often impromptu event. However, once you are out in the wilderness, you will need food that is easy to prepare over a campfire. Bringing along a skillet will make preparing meals such as scrambled eggs over a campfire possible. However, for simplicity’s sake, you should prep scrambled eggs the night before camping. Once prepped, all you must do is pour the mixture into a pan over a campfire to make a scrambled egg breakfast.
Things You'll Need
Crack two eggs into a freezer bag for each person who will be eating breakfast in the morning. For example, if you are feeding three people, crack six eggs into the bag.
Add 1/2 tsp. of salt and 1 tsp. of pepper for every person you are feeding. Following the previous example, add 1 1/2 tsp. of salt and 3 tsp. of pepper.
Pour 1/8 cup of chopped veggies into the bag for every person you are feeding. Following the previous example, add 3/8 cup of chopped veggies. Green peppers, red peppers and onions all go well with scrambled eggs. If you want a bit more spice, use jalapenos instead of green peppers.
Seal the bag and shake to mix the ingredients and break up the yolks. Store the bag in the refrigerator for one hour before placing it into a cooler. The eggs will keep until morning.
Do not allow the eggs to sit out of the cooler or refrigerator for more than one hour before preparing them.
