I would bet that 80% of campers cook eggs .. maybe it’s more like 90% ?? When you cook up some bacon and fry a few eggs, your fellow campers are always jealous if they’re eating cold cereal! Camping and Eggs!
First .. how to transport them!
If you are camping out of a tent or pop-up camper you will need an egg container like this –
You can find these at store with a camping section .. These pictures are from Walmart and Camping World They also make 2 and 6 egg holders.
This container will keep your eggs protected and will hold up to a dozen medium size eggs. It works great in a cooler.
If you are traveling in an RV … just an egg carton will work in your fridge.
You can also freeze whole fresh eggs. You just spray your ice cube tray or other container with some non-stick spray, or on this site they use coconut oil –
and you have frozen eggs –
Visit Fresh Eggs Daily to read about freezing whole eggs and defrosting them too!
This could work really well if you are traveling long distance or camping for an extended period of time.
I’ve heard you can crack eggs whole, no broken yolks, into a container and they will plop out one at a time .. has anyone tried that?
Now for the Cooking!
Here is one recipe I haven’t tried sounds delish!
You coat the outside of a scrubbed potato with butter, wrap tightly in aluminum foil and place the potato on the coals for 45-60 minutes or until tender.
Remove from heat and carefully slice potato partway open and scoop out some of the potato (save for later … potato pancake perhaps!)
Add some green onions, bacon bits, and an egg inside of the potato.
Rewrap with foil and return it to the coals.
Egg side up !!
Bake until egg is set … about 15-20 minutes.
Season it, add hot sauce or salsa … sounds good right?
Here is a picture of something like yours will look like .. this one comes from Our Best Bites and was baked in the oven …
How about cooking your egg in a “empty” orange? Here is a recipe I found on Boy Scout Trail –
Or something like this as well –
A dear friend of mine, Anna Grubbs, sent me this recipe – Omelets in a Bag!
We usually have our “usual” which is Bacon, Fried Eggs, Chili Beans and all the fixings!
How do you cook your eggs when you’re camping? I’d love to share some of your recipes on my Camp Cookbook page!

I love the idea of freezing eggs. I never would have thought about doing that. It seems so simple. I am definitely going to try doing that on my next camping trip.
