Camping recipe: Muffin Tin Eggs

Muffin Tin Eggs

This is a fun way to make eggs for a bunch of people at the same time, or make eggs for some people in a muffin tin and pancakes for others in the skillet. 

Serves: 6

6 strips of bacon
6 eggs
muffin tin

1. Cut each strip of bacon in half, making 12 pieces total.
2. Put 2 pieces of bacon into the bottom of each of the 6 muffin tin cups in a cross, making a little bacon "basket."
3. Place the muffin tin on the grill over the campfire and cook the bacon until done to your liking.
4. Crack an egg into each cup on top of the hot, cooked bacon and cook more until the eggs are done.

You can make fried and scrambled at the same time!

• On occasion I've been teased that all of my recipes contain bacon! Instead of bacon, you can cook the eggs in butter.
• This dish is especially nice with a few leaves of fresh spinach cooked between the eggs and the bacon.

Retro Camping Recipe: Campfire Fondue

One of the last things I would consider making on a camping trip is fondue: think about all the tiny, little bugs flying into the pot! But according to Betty Crocker, it's quite practical. All it takes (according to Betty) is a can of soup and a block of cheese - then you can dip whatever you want into it. In Betty's view, that means "Zebra Bread" (doable), apple wedges, canned vienna sausages (haha, OK, Betty) and canned potatoes (ick).

I don't know if it's the can of cheese soup or the Tahitian Treat in the photo, but count me in as a convert. Next camping trip we're definitely having fondue!
