Orange Peel Eggs

Introduction: Orange Peel Eggs

About: I'm a camper and home cook. I'm a teacher and learner.

Orange Peel Eggs are simply eggs, cooked in an orange peel. I first learned to cook eggs this way in the Boy Scouts. It is a way to cook eggs on an open fire without any pans or dishes. I made these eggs in my office toaster oven with a little tin foil to hold them up.

Ingredients:

  • One Orange
  • Two Eggs (I use about 3 oz. liquid egg substitute, or egg whits)
  • Garnish as desired (I used hot sauce)

Cooking Time:

  • 5 min. preparation
  • 10 min. cooking

Step 1: Prepare the Orange

Cut an orange in half. Scoop out, or eat the orange ‘meat’ while keeping the peels of each half intact. Since I’m cooking for myself, I just ate the orange out. You can make this with any other fruit with a stiff peel, like most citrus.

Step 2: Put Egg Into Orange

Crack an egg in each half, or fill each half orange with about 1.5 oz. of liquid egg. In this example I am using Publix Eggstirs. Don't fill the orange to the brim, the egg will rise.

Step 3: Cook the Orange Egg

Bake or otherwise cook the orange peel egg. Check that it is done with a fork, see that egg is cooked through. I cooked this orange in the office toaster oven with some tin foil to hold it in place. I set the oven to 450 and cooked it for About 10 min. I’ve cooked orange eggs before over an open fire, no pan needed. I don't like the texture of microwaved egg, but it will cook.

Step 4: Eat the Eggs

I like to serve these eggs by cutting each in half, giving you orange egg wedges. I also sprinkled it with some habanero hot sauce.

Enjoy. This is my first instructable. I'm sharing a simple idea for cooking eggs. I look forward to seeing what you all think and what you make.

    If you really want to bring out the orange flavor, mix some of the juice and pulp into the egg.
