When life gives you a volcano brimming with boiling lava.... you cook with it!

Some friends in Iceland made the trip to the country's gorgeous Fargradalsfjall Volcano (don't ask me to pronounce that) to watch it erupt for the first time in thousands of years. It would appear that seeing such a sight in person made them work up quite the appetite, so the they decided to go ahead and make a meal using the lava flows as their own stove.

The friends whipped up some eggs and bacon over the lava, which seemed to go pretty smoothly, though they had to wait quite awhile for everything to cool down as you might've expected.

Check out the video below! My only note is that for being cooked over boiling lava, that bacon doesn't look as crispy as you'd hope it'd be. Flimsy bacon is just the worst.
