Brown bag breakfast:

Ingredients/tools-1 serving per bag

  • 2 strips of bacon
  • 1-2 eggs
  • dry brown lunch bag
  • salt and pepper
  • BBQ briquettes
  • Tongs


1.)Prepare your BBQ briquettes or fire.

2.)Line the bottom of the bag with bacon. The grease moistens the bag and keeps it from burning.

3.)Crack eggs on top of bacon. If you like scrambled eggs stir them in a brown, then poor into bag.

4.)Season with salt and pepper, then fold down top of bag 3 or 4 times, being sure to stop folding before you reach the food.

5.)place bag on prepared BBQ briquettes or coals of fire for 10-20 minutes. Food is done when eggs look cooked.

We tried this recipe this morning and liked that it was simple. we cooked our bags for about 15 minutes. Parts of the eggs seemed to be a little rubbery and other parts, though cooked, were a little to runny for my taste. I think I will try it again in a few days with scrambled eggs to see if they cook more evenly.

Also, the bottom of the bags were a little bit burned and stuck to the food. I thought it would be hard to peal it off, but it wasn't too hard.

The only thing I didn't like was that the bacon was floppy. Sam likes his that way, but I prefer mine crispy.
