Campfire Boiled Eggs

This is Nina's "why are you taking a picture of me holding an egg?" smile :)

How many of you have boiled an egg in a paper cup before? I can't be the only one who thinks this is cool!

Place an egg in a paper cup full of water and place on hot coals.

The cup will burn down to the water level, but not further. The egg happily boils in the cup. Amaze your kids with this trick! Ok... maybe they won't be amazed, but they'll at least be mildly entertained! hehehe

That is amazing. The first time I saw this done I was the camp director and one of the girls popped off with that trick!

Did you know you can also put two pieces of bacon on the bottom of a lunch sack, crack an egg of top of that and then set it on a #10 can that has had the bottom cut out of it and is sitting in a fire?
Wild trick too.

Nina is sure a darling girl!

I've never heard of that before. Of course, I don't camp so that might be why. :) Pretty fun.

I thought I had cooked every food possible on a campfire. But I've never heard of this! That is so cool. We'll try it soon. Thanks!
