Campfire Cooking: Breakfast In A Bag Omelet

January 25, 2013

Guess what? Inspired by Henry And Alice: Into The Wild, I’ve decided to go on a camping vacation myself! Not necessarily THIS year, but certainly one of these years, for sure.

The problem is, the military style MRE, “Meals Ready To Eat,” that Michele Riml devilishly wrote into the script came as a slap-to-the-forehead reminder that I don’t have the foggiest idea what I’m going to put on the picnic table for breakfast or lunch, never mind supper.

Wait. Scratch that last part. Foggy ideas are the ONLY ideas I have. So, what I’ve done is, with expert advice from Camping Canada, I have compiled a book of recipes. Not only that, but I’m going to share them with you, right here on this blog, starting today and continuing at various times through the run of the show.

We begin with “Breakfast In A Bag Omelet.”

Preparation time: 10 minutes.

Serves: One.

Ingredients: Two large eggs, and any combination of bacon, tomato, onion, cheese, etc., etc.

Instructions: Crack open the shells and pour the eggs into a large Ziploc sandwich bag along with one teaspoon of water and the chopped pieces of bacon, tomato, onion, cheese, etc., etc. Place the sandwich bag in a pot of water. Boil for five minutes, then remove from water and (without unsealing the sandwich bag) squish the eggs and the bacon, tomato, onion, cheese, etc. etc. to flatten them all out. Place the sandwich bag back in the pot of water. Boil for an additional five minutes. Serve.


Henry And Alice: Into The Wild runs from January 23 – February 10, 2013. Visit the Globe Theatre website for more details, cast information, and to purchase tickets.
