    Heat your grill up for five minutes on high heat (for gas) or prepare the charcoals for grilling. Once it's ready, heat a small cast iron skillet on direct heat. If you are using gas, reduce the grill temperature to medium.

    Spray the skillet with olive oil spray and add the garlic and tomatoes. Season with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and crushed red peppers. Stir briefly and then cover the grill. Cook for five minutes, until the tomatoes are softened.

    Break the egg into the skillet. Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes, until the white is set and the yolk is done to desired doneness. Carefully remove the skillet from the heat using a potholder and transfer the tomato and eggs to a plate.

More About This Recipe

  • When it comes to camping and meals, I can get super stressed really fast just thinking about logistics. But after a couple summers of practice, I’ve learned that grilling at the campsite is more fun than fuss. The trick is to relax and realize that cooking over a grill or campfire can be fun and easy as long as you have the right equipment – a frying pan (I prefer cast iron), pot, spatula and spoon. Oh! And potholders. Here are some ideas on what to make: 1) Grilled Garlicky Tomato and Egg One of my favorite breakfasts is eggs baked in tomato sauce. This savory, filling favorite is super easy to make on the grill too using fresh tomatoes, dried herbs and spices and an egg. As for special equipment, don’t forget the small cast iron skillet (also good for veggies at dinnertime!), wooden spatula and potholder. 2) Grilled Toast Love toast in the morning? Toast it on the grill! Just place slices of your favorite bread (or bagels or English muffins) on direct heat for a couple minutes per side. You don’t need any special equipment beyond (maybe) a spatula. And have some yummy jam ready for spreading on it (also great for PBJs for lunch). 3) Easy Oatmeal on the Grill The first time my family and I went camping, I made us oatmeal on the grill for breakfast almost every morning. It was easy! You just need a pan to heat water in, a measuring cup and instant oatmeal. If you want to pump up the flavor a bit, top it with fresh fruit and a sprinkle of granola. (The pot is also great for baked beans, chili, etc.)
