 How to Cook Bacon and Eggs in a Paper Bag

If you’re always looking for new things that you can cook over the campfire when heading out, why not cook yourself some bacon and eggs in a paper bag for breakfast. This is such a simple idea and here is how you can do it for yourself.

You will need the following items:

  • 2 strips of fatty bacon
  • 1-2 eggs
  • 1 paper bag
  • Green and pointy stick
  • Knife


  • Cut the strips of bacon in half, giving you 4 pieces. Line the bottom of the paper lunch bag with the bacon.
  • Crack an egg or two on to the nest of bacon.
  • Fold the top of the paper bag down carefully 2 times and poke a hole through the thick part with the stick or your knife.
  • Carefully hold the bag over the fire so the bacon cooks slowly and the fat melts. This makes an oily paper and bacon “skillet” for the egg. Take care and keep cooking it until the egg is done.
