Breakfast Meals You can Cook with the Charcoal Grill

Breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day which is why you have to cook it on a charcoal grill

What do you enjoy most with your breakfast? Is it the coffee? Your eggs? The Bacon? Orange juice? Fried rice? Or something else? Perhaps you may not even be a morning person, but nothing beats the feeling of cooking your own breakfast yourself. The praise you’ll get from your family and friends if you cooked breakfast or any other meal for them is also priceless. Your breakfast will be even better served if you cook it on a charcoal grill! The taste of smoked food from a vertical smoker or an electric bbq grill appeals to your sense of taste and smell in a way that few food can.

Here are some meals that’s perfect for the charcoal grill:


Grilled Eggs

If the thought of grilled eggs has not yet crossed your mind and if you find it difficult to imagine eating eggs from the smoke and heat of a charcoal grill, then allow me to lay down the ingredients of this breakfast recipe for you. So you could be enlightened. First prepare the ingredients which include homemade bread crumbs, fresh herbs, grated Manchego cheese, whipped cream, butter and 4-6 pieces of eggs. Heat up the charcoal grill and butter the skillet before you place the ingredients into it, then once the skillet is hot enough, you can pour in the shirred eggs and the other ingredients. This makes a tasty treat for you or your whole family or even your friends.

Maple Candied Bacon

Some of you are like me who, besides having a non-vegetarian diet, also loves to chew on meat for their meals. For me bacon is a favorite meat for breakfast and I always prepare it by bathing it with brown sugar and maple syrup before cooking it on the charcoal grill. I don’t like using a frying pan as it doesn’t get the right taste that I get from a bbq grill. To minimize flare-ups you must use a raised rail grates. While smoking the bacon strips on the grill, I coat it with the maple syrup once more until I get that smoky, sweet and salty flavor from a crispy bacon strips. And now you have a breakfast and dessert all rolled into one.

Beer-can Breakfast Burgers

Perhaps you’ve never heard of the beer-can breakfast burger before, but it is every bit as delicious as the famous beer-can chicken! Grilled pork sausages (as opposed to the usual ground beef burgers) go for 15 – 30 minutes on the charcoal grill. Smoke it until it gets cooked to medium rare and use a Pretzel or a Kaiser bread to prepare the beer-can breakfast burgers. Don’t forget to add some fillings between the buns with mayonnaise or cheese as well as some bacon and eggs.

Your charcoal grill can do a lot of good for your meals, especially for your breakfast

Mile-High Pancake

Using the typical ingredients for making pancakes like the all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and others, pour the mix in a skillet or a frying pan and smoke in on the charcoal grill. The mile-high pancake is crisp and rich and puffs dramatically on a hot grill and a little known fact about them is that they’re similar to the popover and Yorkshire pudding. Enjoy the mile-high pancake with your early morning freshly squeezed orange juice as well as some grapefruit and strawberry jam.

Chicken Sausage Casserole

One more breakfast meal to cook on your charcoal grill is the chicken sausage casserole! Okay, first you’ll need those disposable foil lasagna pans and prepare all the ingredients which includes fresh bone-in chicken breasts, Italian sausages and more, then you preheat your charcoal grill to medium. Meanwhile pour in the ingredients on the well-greased foil pan and layer them neatly or use it on your reverse flow grill. Once you’ve placed everything in the pan and they’re ready to cook, then cover it with tin foil and bake for 30 minutes. After half an hour remove the foil and smoke it for another 10 minutes in the charcoal grill before cooling and serving.
