How do I transport raw eggs without breaking them?

Traveling with Eggs

Since it's tough to carry uncooked eggs into the wilderness without breaking them, try this unusual idea.

Break the eggs "carefully" into a plastic container small enough to be completely filled by the eggs, put the lid on and you're ready to go! When you're ready to cook, just pour the eggs out of the container.

They'll come out one at a time or as many as you want. Seems hard to believe, but this really works.

This seems like a good idea, however, once the egg leaves the shell, it instantly becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and could result in food poisoning. There are good plastic egg kits you can buy or just leave them in the carton in your cooler. I find the Break-Free eggs handy when camping because they come in a little milk style carton already, so no need to worry about breaking!! Happy Camping!

I actually use the egg substitute that comes in a carton (like a milk carton). It travels well and it won't get contaminated.
