Lately, I’ve been doing some research on all the different ways to cook over a campfire, including hobo pies, foil packs, and other interesting techniques. Among the coolest I’ve discovered is this guy’s method for frying bacon and eggs in a paper bag.
At first blush, it sounds impossible, but apparently with the right touch, it can be done as wingman115 shows here. The secret? Coating the interior of the bag in bacon grease, which prevents it from burning. I can imagine it takes some practice to figure out just the right amountof heat to cook the bag’s contents without setting the whole afire. If nothing else, cooking breakfast in a paper bag eliminates the dirty chore of washing dishes.
Has anybody tried this technique, or is any other cool campfire cooking tips that you’d like to share?
