One of my favorite things about camping is the cooking. Life becomes much simpler when we get to the mountains, and I find so much enjoyment in making a healthy camp breakfast for our family to gobble up before a day of adventure.
This Eggs in a Bag recipe is a huge family favorite that Chris’s grandparents shared with us on our last camp trip. It’s the perfect mix between healthy and fun. You can even make this in your own home if you’re looking for something different and healthy for your family.
My kids love participating in the cooking process and picking out their own toppings. It’s amazing how excited a two and four-year old become when you let them make even the smallest decisions on their own. I learned at a parenting class a few years back that giving strong-willed children choices helps them feel a little bit more in control in a world where just about every decision is being made for them.

For this recipe you will need a large pot of boiling water. You can put a large pot on your camp stove. My family happens to have a large outdoor gas cooker that we’ve used for tons of family meals including our turkey fryer for Thanksgiving!
Next, pick out healthy toppings for your family to enjoy! You can get as creative as you want here. Bacon and ham are big hits with my kids, but I also love to cram in the healthy veggies. Can’t beat a colorful spread!
Pick up some heavy duty Ziploc quart freezer bags, label them, and then grab your little ones to create their very own healthy breakfast! I like to crack 3 eggs in my bag accompanied by all of the delicious veggies. My boys usually just have one egg. Your cook time will vary depending on the amount of eggs. Be sure to have a timer on hand and check the bags frequently. For 1 egg, your cook time is roughly 9-11 minutes. For 2 eggs, 13-15 minutes. For 3 eggs 16-18 minutes.
You’ll know your Eggs in a Bag are done if the eggs have solidified and there’s no liquid. Plate the finished egg creation, top with a little bit of delicious salsa, and serve!
