We wanted to see what else we could cook up during a bonfire and decided to give fried eggs a try. Using our pie irons we heavily buttered the iron and cracked a couple eggs in.
It turned out really good! It did work better though not to put the two sides together but to just hold one of them over the fire, like a long handled fry pan, and then use a spatula to flip the egg when it was part way done. Using both the top and the bottom of the pie iron is hard, especially if it is dark out, to see if you have it level until the white starts running out the sides and then you have lost half the egg. These have become a staple food at our backyard bonfires.
