Camp Scrambles

These easy, boil-in-a-bag scrambled eggs require almonst no cleanup. Add whatever tasty extras you have on hand.


  • 1 dozen eggs
  • whipping cream
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 cup cheeses (optional)
  • 1/2 cup ham (optional)
  • 1/2 cup roasted garlic (optional)
  • 1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers (optional)
  • 1/2 cup spinach (optional)

How to Make It

  1. AT HOME:

  2. To make breakfast for four, pack 1 dozen eggs, whipping cream, salt, and pepper.

  3. Prepare 1/2 cup additions per serving, such as cheeses, ham, roasted garlic, roasted red bell peppers, spinach, or smoked salmon.

  4. Pack a sturdy zip-lock freezer bag (1 qt.) for each serving; tongs; a large spoon; and a big pan.

  5. IN CAMP:

  6. Bring about 4 quarts water to a boil in the pan.

  7. Crack 2 to 3 large eggs into each bag. Add 2 tablespoons whipping cream and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Squeeze bag to blend. Drop in additions to taste and seal bag, expelling as much air as you can.

  8. Lower bags into boiling water, cooking up to three at once. Using tongs and a large spoon, gently turn and squeeze bags until eggs are firm throughout, 5 to 7 minutes total. Do not let the bags touch the sides of the pot. With tongs, lift bags from water.

  9. When cool enough to handle, open bags and pour eggs onto plates.
