My jaw hit the floor when I first saw this astonishing survival video! Who doesn’t love bacon and eggs? If you want to cook your favorite breakfast combo over hot coals, why don’t you try this paper bag method? This video by IntenseAngler will show you how to do it. It’s definitely a perfect way to make breakfast if you don’t have any frying pans on hand. An apocalypse with bacon and eggs seems somehow bearable, don’t you think? 🙂

The key to cooking the bacon and eggs in a paper bag is to saturate the inside of the bag with bacon grease. Another tip is to keep the bottom of the bag about 3-4 inches away from the hot coals.

You can modify this recipe by adding hash browns! After greasing the inside of the bag, place a few strips of bacon on the bottom. Toss in the hash browns. Break one egg on the top of it. Close the bag by folding the top at least three times but leave 3-4 inches of air space above the food. Insert a pointy stick through the folds of the bag and then prop the stick with rocks or hold the bag above hot coals for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and then carefully pull out the stick. Open the bag, sprinkle some chopped parsley on top and drizzle with a little bit of ketchup or sriracha sauce and they’re now ready to eat!

Another method of cooking on a campfire is through the use of heavy duty foil. It couldn’t be any easier than that! The thing about this technique is that you have to place it on hot coals and not on the flames. The ideal way is to place them on a bed of coals that are about two inches thick. There are a few folding techniques that you have to learn so that you can achieve different cooking styles. The “tent pack” is great for steaming while the “flat pack” is great for browning.

Here’s another recipe: Hotdog foil packs!!! Slice some white onions and bell peppers. Place the hotdogs on the foil, and put the sliced vegetables on top. Drizzle olive oil over it and a little bit of butter. Season with salt and pepper (you can add a tiny bit of cayenne pepper if you want it to be a bit spicy) Close the foil in a flat pack and place it on hot coals and grill for 15 minutes or until cooked.
