You can prepare the onion, cherry tomatoes, cheddar and basil can all be diced and sliced at home and stored in small reusable containers or plastic bags in advance in your kitchen that bring more conveniences. Those ingredients should be stored in a freezer to keep fresh.You can cook frittata on campfire oven as well.

Yield: 8 slices

  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Olive oil
  • Aluminum foil (if no lid is available)


  1. When your campfire is already to start the cooking and the skillet is hot, pour the oil just cover the pan. Then put the diced onions in it and keep stirring until the onions are soften
  2. While the onions cook, whisk together the eggs. Seasoning the combination with basil, grated cheddar, sea salt and black pepper. Then put aside.
  3. When the onions are translucent, put the tomatoes into the skillet and stir. Finally, add the egg mixture. Stir them altogether quickly and powerfully. Let the skillet continually be heating, until the eggs begin to set around the edges, for 5 minutes.
  4. Use aluminum foil to wrap the eggs around the edge of the skillet. (Protect your bare hands with towel or cooking gloves from burning!)
  5. Cook the frittata for about 20 minutes until the center has set. Take off the foil to let the frittata cool down before serving.

This campfire cooking normally was cooked in dry oven without a foil covered, so it may be get moisture due to the campfire, but not a bad thing at all.
