Love the simple things in life, then try cooking an egg in a ladle over the campfire. All you need is a fire, a ladle, an egg, and a little bit of patience. The egg can be served in a sandwich or eaten as-is.
Cooking the egg is just the start, then comes thinking of all the ways that you can eat it. Try it in a sandwich, over leftovers, with rice, or a million other ideas. High in protein, eggs are a healthy and simple snack or a great foundation for a meal.
Some 1900’s kitchens actually had specifically shallow ladles that were designed primarily for this task. In modern times a traditional ladle will work just fine.
Campfire Egg in a Ladle Recipe
- 1 pat butter
- 1 egg
- Preheat the ladle over the fire.
- Add the pat of butter, or other oil if desired.
- Crack the egg into the preheated ladle. Cook until the egg is done to your liking. The closer the ladle is to the flame and hot coals the quicker it will cook, the further away the slower and softer the egg will be.
