Ease of Bush Cooking: Very Easy. Cut, crack, seal and Slap it on the embers. Simple.

Servings: 1

Kit Required:
Tin Foil
Cocktail Sticks

1 Large Jacket Potato
1 Egg
a Slice of Cheese
a Knob of Butter (optional)

Pepper (optional)

Slice the top third of the potato off, and put to one side (this will become the lid). Scoop out about an egg size amount of potato from the main piece of potato jacket. Place the cheese inside the potato then crack open the egg into the potato too. Removing any excess egg white. Sprinkle on some pepper to your liking, then replace the saved potato lid on top. Use the cocktail sticks to secure the lid. If you like you can place a knob of butter into the tin foil for a bit more richness. Seal the potato with two layers of tin foil and place onto the fire embers. Cook for about 1 to 11/2  hours. Stab the potato with the knife to see if it is ready. The knife should ease into the potato through to the centre.
