Bacon and Eggs in a Paper Bag

No Photo


  • 1 pound bacon
  • 16 lunch size paper bags
  • 32 large whole eggs
  • 16 long handled cooking forks


  1. Cut each slice of bacon in half. Open lunch bag and line bottom with 2 half-slices of bacon. Wash hands after handling raw bacon. Close the bag by folding the top down 1 1/2 inches. Make a second fold about the same size. Pierce the bag (through the fold) in the center with the cooking fork or a stick. Hold the bag (by the cooking fork or stick) over a bed of hot coals. The bag should be about 1 inch above the coals. Cook for 3-5 minutes until bag starts to get soaked with bacon grease. Remove bag from heat, let cool for 1 minute.
  2. Break open 2 eggs and drop them into the bag on top of the bacon. Stir eggs, refold bag and pierce in center with cooking fork. Hold the bag about 1 inch above coals for about 15 minutes or until eggs are firm and bacon is cooked.
  3. Eat bacon and eggs right from the bag.

Serves 16.
