Recently we went camping (our first family camping trip) and we love it! I especially loved all the outdoor cooking we did. There were lots of helpers and our great friend John always had the fire going for some campsite cooking. These eggs are inspired by him, so simple and so delicious, the best type of food if you ask me, and this is a principal that I know John cooks and lives by. Back to basics simple and special.

We cooked these over the camp fire, the same principals apply, but I have written the recipe for the home cook on the stove top. You can of course half this for fewer portions. I usually go on 2 eggs per person, add any herbs you wish, try oregano and a sprinkle of paprika. I don’t usually add any cream or milk to my eggs, as I like the soft velvety texture of the eggs on their own, and I always season with sea salt and pepper, once they are cooked, not in the scrambling process. Give it a go.
Eggs Johno style
Prep time 5 minutes
Cooking time 5 minutes
2 tsps olive oil
½ cup chopped fresh parsley
sea salt & cracked pepper
1 Heat oil in a large non stick frypan over medium high heat. Crack all eggs into a large bowl, and gently whisk with a fork to break up the yolks.
2 Pour the eggs into the frypan and allow to cook for 20 seconds, using a spatula push the eggs from one side of the pan to the other, allowing the eggs to cook underneath. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then sprinkle with parsley, season with salt& pepper, pushing the eggs, until are cooked till your liking.
3 Serve with your favourite condiments.Toast, bagels, roast tomatoes, bacon, or a sprinkle of cheese.
Sizzle tip – don’t move the eggs around the pan too much, this way you will get beautiful soft waves of eggs, not tiny broken up pieces of egg.
Sizzle add – add your favourites to these scrambled eggs, the list is endless, basil leaves, tomatoes, bacon pieces, Parmesan cheese. These eggs are delicious cold in a fresh bread sandwich, drizzled with some whole eggs mayonnaise and a chilli sprinkle .
