From Hungarian American Cooking 1938, Rosa Green. I haven't made these yet but they sound great. Cooking and prep time are a guess.

Make potatoes ahead of time for camping, wrap potatoes top side up in foil, refridgerate till ready to use. At camp fire open top of foil, add eggs & cheese. Cook on a grate over the hot coals till eggs are cooked and cheese is melted. Great Stuff!!!!!
