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!!!!!

Loved this recipe, tasty, inexpensive and filling. I used monterrey jack and mixed a little of the cheese into the potato as well before I stuffed it back into the shell. For some reason it took my egg about 25 minutes to cook enough. Enjoyed this great quick dinner - thanks for sharing the recipe!

This is an awesome quick dinner meal. I like eggs for dinner sometimes but this took 1 step higher. I scrambled my egg just a bit before putting in the potato and with the cheese added to it,yummmy. This is definately a keeper. Thanks for the great recipe!!!
