While camping out with my son in the middle of Death Valley, we were limited on what we had to cook with. No Frying Pan or pot, only a small charcoal grill and Aluminium Foil. For breakfast we halved oranges, removed fruit, and filled with scrambled eggs. Also, we had bisquik mix added to more halved oranges. Maybe it was waking up on the cold desert ground, and rekindling the campfire that made this so good. Since I live in Sunny Florida now, I think the name is appropriate.
