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.

Slowly insert the stick through one end of the egg and out through the other. You can always start small holes with the tip of your knife.

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 five minutes depending how firm you want it.


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