Bacon & Eggs in a Paper Bag

I’ve tried a lot of novelty cooking ideas but never this one.

How fun!

Love eggs? Love bacon? Whether you’re simply looking for a fun party trick over your backyard firepit or actually going camping, making bacon-and-eggs in a paper bag is bound to be a tasty hit. The easy method only requires the two breakfast staples and a standard paper lunch bag.

For the cooking method, you’ll want to make sure you use thick-cut bacon (you’ll be using the porky slices to grease up the paper bag interior), and if you’re on an overnight camping trip, you can store cracked-open raw eggs in a water bottle. When you’re ready for breakfast (or lunch, or dinner), you use the bacon to coat the inside of the bag, then put the bacon inside the bag, pour in your eggs on top, fold the top of the bag down to seal it shut and poke a stick through the top of the bag. Suspend it over your coals or fire for five-to-seven minutes, taking care to rotate your stick so all sides cook through evenly. Then grab your fork, open up the bag and dig in.

  1. This is a really cool trick! Thanks for sharing. I don’t go camping but lots of friends and relatives do so I will share this on Facebook for them to find. Have a lovely weekend.

    For a large group wanting eggs you can put a huge pot of water on the fire to heat, give each person a zip-top freezer bag, let each person put eggs and seasonings to taste in their bags and shake them up, then throw all the bags in the pot of water. You get individualized omelets.


    • Never tried that but it’s an interesting idea. Personally, I’m not so sure about the safety of cooking in a ziplock bag. Then again doing it once or 10 times in your life probably wouldn’t hurt you. I AM careful about cooking methods. But I can think back to a lot of weekends when we had 10 or 15 people overnight that this would have come in handy. Thanks.
