Cooking at the Campsite

  1. Prepare your cooking area by heating up charcoal briquettes.

  2. Preheat pie irons.

  3. Once preheated, butter pie irons thoroughly.

  4. Add egg  to one side. Add all other ingredients to same side as egg (crush up the tater tots with your hands before placing in pie iron.)

  5. Close and clip pie irons. Place egg side down on fire (keeping pie iron as level as possible) for 2 minutes.

  6. Check omelettes. As soon as egg is set up, flip to other side and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Watch carefully as these cook very quickly.
