Eggs in a bag are fun to make

Eggs in a bag are fun to make and great to eat!

As you know My Best of Both World is all about finding a balance between work life and family life or at least juggling it the best you can.  One of the many hats I enjoy wearing is being a Girl Scout co-leader.

I am definitely not “the camper type”, but I do love to go camping with our Girl Scout troop, we have cots and raised tents and a bathroom in each campground-that’s roughing it enough as far as I’m concerned.

One of the things we really enjoy at each time we go out is our first breakfast of eggs in a bag.  It’s a novel idea and from this leader’s perspective the nice thing about it is that we can cook a whole bunch of them at one time and basically everyone gets to eat breakfast together.

It’s really easy peasy.  Get a big pot of water boiling over that campfire.  Make sure you have a sharpie and quart size zip locking freezer bags.  (Freezer bags are heavy-duty and will stand up to the boiling water).

Write each girls name on the outside of her bag.  Then have a egg making omelet station as fancy or plain as your camping budget permits.

Scramble at least two eggs per person and have them all in a pitcher or bowl.

For camping we prep these items ahead of time

Cheeses cut up or shredded.

Veggies (peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms –you name it) diced

Meats (ham, bacon, hotdogs-whatever you are in the mood for)

Then as each girl pours her eggs into her bag and adds whatever she’d like to have in her omelet.

Then you close the bag and carefully drop them into the rolling boiling water.

Depending on how many bags you are cooking, it take about 7-10 minutes for the omelet to cook.

Carefully remove the bag from the water and then serve.  Hot and delicious and FUN!

Then bring your bag to the table and enjoy a fun breakfast!
