Eggs in a Box

Sunday, June 27, 2010 @ 08:06 AM

I’ve heard many different terms for this great camping breakfast. Eggs in a box, eggs in a nest, eggs in a basket. They all refer to an egg or two cooked into a whole in a piece of bread and toasted on a  griddle or cast iron skillet. I’ve gone camping with my two Boy Scouts many times and was served eggs in a box many mornings. I have version of this camp out breakfast that is just made with fancier bread. You want a nice loaf of sourdough or some sort of country style bread. Slice about 1 inch thick. Tear out the center of each bread slice leaving about 1\2 inch around the edge. Save the centers to make toast on the grill. Heat some bacon fat or butter on your skillet or cast iron griddle over the fire or on your grill. Place the bread rings on the griddle. Break 2 eggs into each ring. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you may wish. Cook 2-3 minutes. Flip the bread rings and cook 1-3 minutes more. Serve with the toasted centers.
