Cut one half off of an unpeeled onion and scoop out most of the interior, being careful not to hole the onion. Break an egg into the cavity, place the onion directly on the coals and replace the 'lid'. Cooking time depends on the thickness of the remaining onion walls, but you'll end up with a basically hard-boiled egg and a couple of layers of onion to eat.
CommentI got this out of a cookbook that I can't remember the name of that came out in the early 1970's. 'Roughing it Easy' or something like that. It had a bunch of easy recipes and is worth looking for in used-book stores.
