How To Make This Campfire Scrambled Eggs Recipe

STEP ONE: Preheat the grill to 600°F. Turn the heat down to medium heat and place the cast-iron skillet on the grill to preheat. If you are cooking this recipe on a campfire, get your fire going and then place the pan on the grill.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Prepare your fire with either wood or charcoal. Let it burn down until ash gray with moderately hot coals but no big open flames.

STEP TWO: Once the pan is hot, drizzle olive oil around the bottom of the skillet and add the diced onions, pepper, and jalapeño. Sauté until the onions are translucent and the peppers have softened.

PRO TIP:

Try not to cook this recipe directly over an open flame. Instead, get your campfire going and once the coals are nice and hot, lay a grill over top and cook your scrambled eggs.

STEP THREE: Add the potatoes and corn and cook for 4 to 5 minutes until the potatoes start to brown.
