'Bag boiling' is a great way to cook around the campfire with no messy pot cleanup. We met with Breakfast Television Winnipeg to share one of our favourite recipes for eating well in the great outdoors: Egg Scramble in a Bag
Ingredients (per camper):
In individual, sandwitch-sized bags combine eggs, cheese and whatever optional ingredients desired by each camper. Seal, squeezing out as much air as possible, and mix well by shaking/massaging the bag. If you have created different recipes, write the campers' name on each bag with a permanent sharpie marker. Keep refrigerated or in a cooler until cooking.
At the Campsite
Boil water in a large enough pot to fit all the bags. When water is boiling, add bags directly to the pot and cook for approximately 14 minutes, or until contents do not look runny. When done, remove bags from the water (carefully!- use tongs or pliers). Open or cut bags, and roll out a delicious egg scramble breakfast, ready to eat! Dispose of used bags in a bear-safe garbage site, and use the boiled water for coffee, hot chocolate, or washing dishes.
