Campfire Eggs in a Baker (potato)


2 large baked potatoes (russett or sweet)
1 Tbsp. butter
2 eggs
2 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 Tbsp. shredded Pinconning cheddar or gouda cheese
1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper


Lay the first baked potato on its side, and use a knife to carefully cut off the top third of the potato. With a spoon, hollow out the middle of the potato to make a "bowl", leaving the potato as thick or thin as you'd like. (Just remember, the more roon you leave, the more room for eggs, bacon and cheese!) Repeat with the second potato.

Place 1/2 tablespoon of butter in the middle of each bowl. Then gently break an egg into each bowl, careful not to break the yolk. Top with bacon, cheese, parsley, and then season with salt and pepper. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes, or until the egg whites are set. Serve immediately.

Campfire Cupcake

12 navel oranges
1 batch Vanilla Cupcake mix (recipe below)
1 bar Chocolate
Vanilla Cupcake Recipe
1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 3/4 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 cup milk


Preheat grill on high heat. If using a charcoal grill, get the coals hot and glowing. Cover to retain the heat.
Cut 1 inch off the top of each orange.
Hollow out the oranges and scrape the pulp off the tops as well.
Prepare the vanilla cupcake mix (see Cupcake Recipe).
Fill the oranges about ½ full of vanilla mix.
Top with a square of the chocolate.
Put the top back on and wrap the orange in aluminum foil, (tear off a square of foil, place the orange in the center and fold up the ends, pinching together to create a “crown”).
Place the foil wrapped oranges on the grill grate, close the lid, turn the heat down to medium-low (if you have a temperature indicator, it should be 350 - 370 degrees Fahrenheit). You can place the wrapped oranges on the charcoal grill grate, or place directly on the coals. If using this method, check often to see if it is done.
Grill for 20 minutes, check one of the vanilla cakes to see if it's still doughy, and if not firm and spongy, cook for 5-10 more minutes.
Remove from heat, unwrap the vanilla cake oranges half way and serve.
