Special Fried EggsEdit
Add some oil to a pan or saucepan, but not too much. Carefully place the egg & season with salt. Place the pan or saucepan (without lead) on the solar cooker. Cover the pan with a plastic bag, in such a way that the egg can be seen (it is possible to cook 2 eggs at a time). Leave it under the sun until the white of the egg becomes really white. (If left longer the yoke will harden). Cooking time: 30 minutes.
Hard Boiled EggsEdit
Wash the eggs and place them in a pan. Cover with water and add a bit of salt. Cooking time: 3 to 4 hours.
Cotton Undie EggsEdit

A sense of fun!
Take the eggs and carefully wrap them in an old pair of clean, black cotton underpants. Place in the cooker until done. (Ours in a home made panel cooker, the eggs covered with a large pyrex dome, for about 1.5 hours and were a tad overdone.) When ready, use them to make curried egg and lettuce sandwiches to share for lunch.
This is one for a group of kids to get them interested in solar cooking. There was no way they thought they could cook eggs in old black cotton sox or underpants and chose to cook the eggs in an ancient pair of worn out black cotton underpants (complete with holes) and called the eggs "underpant eggs"!!! We used the cooked eggs to make curried egg and lettuce sandwiches for lunch which they all enjoyed. The eggs went into a panel cooker, were covered with a pyrex dome and cooked for a bit more than one hour. They were great in the sandwiches and it was a lot of fun. It made a solar cooking lesson a fun learning experience for the kids which they have never forgotten.
