    Default Egg on a stick

    Many times I've taught this technique to young Boy Scouts. It's not new, it's been around a lot longer than I have. But the first time you do it it's always fun.

    Find a thin but strong hardwood stick and sharpen one end down to 1/8 inch thick. Work your way down from the end for about four inches.

    Build a small cooking fire, coals not needed, flame will work just fine.

    Slowly insert the stick through one end of the egg and out through the other. You can always start small holes by tapping with the tip of your knife or a pointy rock.

    Hold the egg over the flames so that the flames touch the top of the egg. Allow the flames quickly cook that end to seal it.

    Then hold the stick upright over medium heat to finish cooking the egg. Give it four to six minutes depending how firm you want it.


    In a pinch - duck and goose eggs can be found in the Spring.

    I read about this in a magazine about a year ago. I tried it and I ended up cracking the egg. Haven't tried it since.

    It has to be slow cooked, too much head will crack it. I normally just let the flames of the fire just lick the egg.

    It cracked when I was putting the stick through it.

    The stick needs to be whittled down on the end to about 1/8th of an inch thick. Do this for about three to four inches. Use your knife tip to tap a small hole on each end of the egg. This should keep it from cracking when inserting the stick.

    One of the benefits of cooking like this is that it requires a very small fire. Most cooking fires you need a bed of coals, not for this. Just a quick small fire will do the trick, let the flames do the cooking. This is great when on the move or you have little time to cook.

    I tried it last weekend. I followed PGV's instructions - whittled the stick, tapped the hole, etc. It just didn't turn out right. Maybe I need to try another brand of eggs?

    You dingbat. You already had a hole in the top. Just remove the cap and stand the stick up in the carton. You can cook it like a candy apple. (sorta like one....well, not really....actually, it's nothing like it)

    Well i tried doing this while camping with mixed results.
    I made a video but ive been too lazy to edit and post it so far.
    first try i cracked the eggs drilling the holes several times.Then didnt cook it well enough as the stick i used was to short and was burning my hands, then it exploded as i heated it too fast. Last attempt i used a longer thinner stick but over cooked it. it does work , just takes patience and pratice. still a cool thing to know but like every skill, practice it before you need it
