5. Make eight small wells in the mixture, moving the contents aside so that the eggs can reach the bottom of the pan. Crack each egg into a well. Place pan back onto the heat. Once the egg whites have cooked and the edges are crispy, remove the pan from the fire. The eggs will continue to cook once removed from the fire from the residual heat in the pan.

6. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley then using a micro plane, grate Parmesan over the whole dish. Distribute into plates or bowls and serve with a wedge of lemon. Enjoy around the fire with hot cups of coffee!

Stovetop Method:

Heat a frypan or skillet over medium heat. Complete steps 2 to 6 from campfire method. To speed up the egg cooking process, you can place your frypan under the oven grill for a few minutes. Enjoy!
