Breakfast – Orange, Egg and Muffin – easy to prepare!

- Equipment Needed: aluminum foil, knife and spoon
- How to Prepare: cut orange in half and eat the insides (that is your fruit). Cut the orange in half to form two cups. Remove pulp careful not to make a hole in the rind. Eat the
orange – that is part of breakfast. In one half of the orange fill 2/3 full with muffin mix. In the second half of the orange break an egg – hard boiled or scrambled is your choice. Add seasonings to taste. Wrap each half with foil leaving a small air space in the top. Place orange bottoms on hot colas and cook until done.

Double wrap onion in aluminum foil and place on coals of campfire. Cook for approximately 35 minutes. Steamy when opened, use caution and season with salt.
