  • Camping Stove
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Fork or whisk for beating
  • Cutting board and knife
  • Skillet
  • Pie Irons


  • 3 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 2/3 cup diced bell pepper mixed colors if possible
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 4 oz diced ham
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 can crescent roll dough we like the sheets when we can find it
  • cooking spray
  • hot sauce and/or salsa optional


  • (Optional) Preheat your pie irons over the fire while getting your eggs ready.
  • Crack eggs carefully into a bowl and whisk them. Season them with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a skillet, over a camping stove if possible, scramble your eggs.
  • In a separate skillet, if available, saute your peppers and onions. It is okay if you can't saute them in advance. This is just our personal preference.
  • Add your ham, peppers, and onions to the eggs.
  • Open your pie irons and spray both sides with cooking spray.
  • If you are using the sheet of dough, cut it into four equal pieces. If you are using the precut rolls, separate into groups of two rolls.
  • Insert one piece of dough in the bottom of your pie iron. Spread it up the sides of the iron to create a cup.
  • Add half of your egg mixture into your cup, then add half of the cheese. Repeat with other pie iron.
  • Place another square of dough on top and pinch edges together to seal.
  • Carefully close your cooker, making sure to latch it.
  • Place pie irons over the campfire and cook, turning every five minutes or so, until the dough is baked. Check often as they will burn.
