About this recipe

Now usually we’ll tell you to stack your breakfast sandwiches with our convenient JUST Egg Folded, but that lives in the freezer and isn’t ideal for taking on the road. So, if you’re out in the woods camping or having a BBQ cookout in the park, our pourable JUST Egg is what you’ll want to have stashed in the cooler for all your breakfast needs.

Since you’re already walking on the wild side, ditch your usual egg scramble and use a pudgy pie iron to make these tasty, fluffy egg patties for breakfast sandwiches. If you don’t already have a pie iron, they’re great fun to have for campfire cooking, for making pressed sandwiches, pizza pockets and more.

These egg patties cook quickly over a hot fire or stove and are delicious when layered on a toasted English muffin with avocado for richness and hot sauce for heat.

Serves 1

  • Cooking oil
  • 6 tablespoons of JUST Egg
  • ¼ of an avocado
  • 1 English muffin, split
  • Hot sauce (optional)
  • Tomato, sliced (optional)


  • iron skillet icon

    Round pie iron

  • gas burner icon

    Campfire or open-flame burner

Preheat the pie iron


Separate the pudgy pie iron into two halves and set each over a campfire or open-flame stove burner to preheat for a few minutes. If over a campfire, you want them over an area of strong warm coals, not extreme direct flame. If using a burner, keep it on medium-low heat.

Grease the pie iron


Once hot, blow or brush out any ash that’s fallen onto the pie iron halves. Add a generous amount of cooking oil to each iron, enough to coat the entire surface generously but not pool too much. Swirl the oil around to make sure the sides are well coated, then position the pie irons back on the fire grate or burner.

03 / 05

Add the JUST Egg


Carefully pour about 3 tablespoons of JUST Egg to each half. The exact amount will depend on the size and shape of your pie iron. Just keep in mind that the egg will bubble and expand as it cooks, so you’ll need to leave enough room so that it doesn’t overflow. Let the egg cook until the liquid is almost completely set – this should take less than 5 minutes, depending on the heat of your fire. Remove the pie irons from the heat and let them sit for 2 to 3 more minutes to set completely.

04 / 05

Toast the bread


While the eggs set, lightly toast the English muffins on the fire grate.

Assemble the sandwich


Layer one half of the English muffin with sliced avocado and season with salt and pepper. Transfer both egg patties from the pie iron onto the bread. If you’re having any issues with the egg sticking to the pie iron, use a spoon to loosen the edges of the egg patty and scoop it out. Add a slice of tomato and a drizzle of hot sauce if desired. Close the sandwich and enjoy!
