Wow.

Here, eggs are $1.49 a dozen for the local factory swill at walmart, or free (free range and hormone free) right down the road. All you can carry, just wash 'em yourself :mrgreen:

Yeah. I'm spoiled. Yolks that are sunset orange and have to be whipped to liquify are something few get to see.

If you've never had an omlette made from fresh, warm eggs, you're missing a wonderful treat. (And no, those $6/dozen hippie-dippy "natural organic" eggs in the expensive cartons dont even come close. Hehehe). Completely different flavor than anything in the store.

psst: mine are $6 for 30, not a dozen. Sadly, not still warm, but they are all just a day or two old, which is way better than supermarket. And they have that lovely dark gold yolk. Yummmm.

Our supermarket eggs are local, so while not warm, at least they aren't evil bad supermarket eggs. Hormone free and all that happy crap. Buck something a dozen.

A dozen hard boiled eggs on the playa are an easy treat, especially with a little tobacco. 8)

And here I am in Oregon paying $4/dozen for good local eggs... But soon we will have ducks and then we'll get some chickens.

Duck eggs make super omelets and are far superior to chicken eggs for baking, something about different proteins than chicken eggs. Also they're naturally alkaline while chicken eggs are usually acidic, I've known people who've claimed to not be able to digest chicken eggs comfortably but were fine with duck eggs. And even more, ducks are way cuter and entertaining to have around than chickens.

We made omelets most mornings for breakfast. We used egg white in a carton, I sautéed up some tomato, mushroom, and onion, put on some spices and cheese, just used a single small pan on my camping stove. As complex as it sounds, took about 10 minutes total (plus 15 minutes clean up, eggs being what they are).

Who says you can't eat well on playa?

Use a paper bowl that has a wax(ish) lining, and whisk the eggs in there. You can whisk all the eggs for your omelettes in just a few bowls, depending on how many you're making. Put the bowls in your burn pile when done. Serve on paper plates. Burn pile when done. Use a non-stick skillet, wipe out with a paper towel & a dash of detergent. Only things that will need to be washed are your knives, silverware and cutting surface (unless you pre-sliced things before heading to the playa). Your 15 minutes of cleaning has just become 5. (can you tell I hate doing on-playa clean up?)

I made omeletes about have the mornings, with freshly cut and sauteed vegetables. Highly recommend liquid egg or liquid egg white, which was very easy to use - no shells to deal with.

Try scrambled eggs and omelets made with heavy cream instead of milk. So-so great!

For a cool twist on regular scrambled eggs:
instead of adding bacon to it, try cumin seeds and a little sugar. :)

Microwave safe bowl.

Put a tablespoon of sauce, then a corn tortilla.

Moosh it so it spreads the sauce on the bottom and add another tbs. on top.

Add cheese and onion and repeat layers depending how hungry you are. (I do two)

Nuke for a minute and a half.

That's it, and a quick clean up! 8)


Nothing against Bucket Coolers and LagBolts, but why isn't FigJam more known for THIS?!?!? You just rocked my world.

Though I suppose there aren't too many microwaves on playa, so those other two things would be more useful when not in defaultia...

Was out of cream the other day, so we used some Mexican-style crema (like sour cream but thinner). Outstanding!

Kelsier Mexicans don't make rolled up enchiladas. It's too much trouble for daily meals. I was raised in Pico Rivera and married a Mexican. They make chilaquiles. That is what Figjam is describing. I don't cook because that's what husbands are for but if I had to I could make all kinds of great spicy dishes.

I'm always down to learn something new in the culinary realms. I had always thought chilaquiles were an egg based dish (with the tortillas of course), but that's probably because that is how my lady likes them. Figjam's description just sounds like some flat layered Microwave enchiladas. Chilaquiles is a much more fun term. While I don't normally use the microwave much, this could be quite useful for a quick lunch.

Was thinking about bringing some of my chicken tinga to the playa this year. But I'm scared to learn I've been making it wrong all this time. :?

You are right about the egg. I like my enchiladas with 2 fried eggs on top. That's the Mexican way. It's just a baby step from enchiladas to Huevos Rancheros. Both are made with tortillas, cheese onions and a sauce. Now I'm hungry.
