Yields: 2 - 4
Total Time: 0 hours 30 mins
2 tbsp.

extra-virgin olive oil

1 1/2 lb.

potatoes, scrubbed clean and diced into ½" pieces

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper


large bell pepper, chopped


medium yellow onion, chopped

8 oz.

cured (not fresh) Spanish chorizo, diced

2 tbsp.

maple syrup


to 6 large eggs 

Sliced green onions, for garnish

  1. Place a grate and large cast-iron skillet over a campfire and preheat 15 minutes. Heat oil in skillet, then add potatoes in an even layer. Season with salt and pepper and cook, undisturbed, until golden and crispy on one side, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Stir in peppers, onions, chorizo, and maple syrup. Cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Use a spoon to make wells in mixture. Crack an egg into each well and season with salt and pepper. Cover skillet with foil (or a lid) and cook until eggs are done to your liking, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Garnish with green onions and season with more black pepper before serving.
