An Orange with my Egg (Please)


Campfire cooking

A great part of being Out and About in this great southern land of ours is the opportunity it gives to prepare food over an open fire – campfire cooking.

 Mind you, I’m no gourmet cook, far from it and besides, Janet-Planet cooks up the best food ever.

Um, yes, you’re right, my waistline is starting to confirm that…

But let me say, there is nothing better than sitting around a fire on a lazy Sunday morning, the bacon sizzling away in the pan, coals glowing as the aroma of the smoked hickory bacon wafts on a warm and gentle breeze…

And for sure, I’m hearing ya – every morning is a lazy one in the Australian Outback…right?

By-the-way, I’ll have my eggs poached in an orange thanks!


Get out of here…you’ve never tried it?

Tell you what, scoop out an orange, crack an egg into it and sit back, relax, it’ll be cooked soon enough – you’ll never look back.

Orange poached egg, its got to be the best thing since sliced bread!

    That looks good! Cooking in an orange beats cooking in a skunk cabbage leaf any day. I read about that somewhere long ago.

    Can second the egg, even though we put the orange on the gas barbie. Much less cleaning than a fried egg 🙂

    Going to try the egg in an orange – some of the best ideas are the oddest ones!

    I can second that. Camp fire cooking is the best. Especially big breaky banquets.
