The 8 Best Recipes For Breakfast Meals On The Charcoal Grill


  1. Grilled Cast-Iron Scrambled Eggs

    To prepare cast-iron scrambled eggs, you will need 12 large eggs, 2 tablespoons of water, ¼ teaspoon of salt, ¼ teaspoon of pepper, ⅔ cup chopped onion, 2 tablespoons of butter, 4 ounces of crumbled fresh goat cheese, 1 seeded and chopped jalapeno pepper, and 3 tablespoons of minced chives.

    Start by whisking the eggs, salt, water, and pepper in a large bowl. Set this mixture aside. Now position a 10-inch skillet made out of cast iron on a medium-high heat setting. Saute jalapeno and onion in butter in the skillet till it has a tender outlook. Now put in the egg mixture. Keep cooking and stirring until the mixture is set. Put in the chives and the cheese. Keep stirring and cooking till the eggs are ready.

    Make sure that you are wearing gloves when cutting hot peppers. In addition, the oils have the potential to burn your skin. Remember that you shouldn’t touch your face at any point during the cooking procedure.

  2. Grilled Prosciutto Egg Panini

    For this recipe, you will require 3 large eggs, 2 large egg whites, 6 tablespoons of fat-free milk, 1 thinly sliced green onion, 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, 8 slices of sourdough bread, 8 thin slices of deli ham, ½ cup of cheddar cheese (shredded) and 8 tablespoons of butter.

    Take a small bowl to whisk eggs, milk, egg whites, onion, and milk. Take a large skillet and brush a layer of cooking spray on it. Set it on medium-low heat setting. Spread the combination of syrup and mustard on four slices of bread. You can layer this with prosciutto, scrambled eggs, and cheese. Use the remaining bread to top these. Brush a layer of butter outside the bread. Use an indoor grill or panini maker to prepare the dish for either three to four minutes or until the cheese melts. You can slice each panini in half to serve.

  3. Foil-Packet Potatoes And Sausage

    To prepare foil-packet potatoes and sausage, use 3 pounds of red potato, 24 ounces or 2 packs of sausage links, 4 cooked and crumbled bacon strips, 1 chopped onion, 2 tablespoons of freshly chopped parsley, ¼ teaspoon of salt, ¼ teaspoon of garlic salt, ¼ teaspoon of pepper, and added parsley.

    Prepare your grill or campfire in a medium-heat setting. Put potatoes, bacon, parsley, sausage, onion, pepper, and salts in a large bowl. Now distribute the prepared mixture in eight 18*12 pieces of aluminum foil. Position the food on the dull side of the foil.

    Once you fold the foil around the potato mixture, make sure you seal it tightly. Position the packs over the grill or the campfire. Keep each side on the cooking surface for 15 minutes. Or until you notice that the potatoes are cooked. Make sure you carefully open the packets so that the steam can escape. You can even sprinkle some parsley if you want to.

    You can change the flavor by using any other fully cooked sausage such as feta chicken or spinach sausage. In case you don’t have heavy-duty foil at your place, you can use a double thickness of any regular aluminum foil at your place.

  4. Ginger-Glazed Grilled Honeydew

    You will need ¼ cup of peach preserves, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of finely chopped garlic, 2 teaspoons of grated lemon zest, ⅛ teaspoon of ground cloves, and one medium honeydew melon sliced into 2-inch cubes.

    Start by combining the first five ingredients. Use 6 soaked or metal wooden skewers to thread honeydew. Grill honeydew on a rack that is lightly brushed with oil. Make sure the heat is set to medium-high or broil till you observe that the melon has turned brownish in color. The honeydew skewers are a storehouse of potassium and vitamin C.

  5. Eclairs On The Grill

    To prepare eclairs on the grill, you will need 8 ounces of the refrigerated seamless crescent dough sheet. You will also require chocolate or vanilla pudding, probably 3 snack-size cups. Lastly, you need chocolate frosting and whipped cream in a can.

    Now start the recipe by preparing your grill or campfire at a high heat setting. Use foil to carefully wrap one side of a wooden dowel or stick using foil. Unroll your crescent dough sheet and then cut it into 4 six-inch squares.

    Cook this over the fire until the color changes to golden brown or for 4-5 minutes for that matter. Once the dough has cooled down enough for you to handle it, simply remove the stick. Follow the same procedure with the remaining dough. Use a resealable plastic bag to place the pudding. Now cut a small hole in one corner of the bag. Squeeze the bag so you can press the mixture into each one of the shells. Spread the frosting and use whipped cream over it. Enjoy your homemade eclairs.

  6. Campfire Hash

    To prepare campfire hash, you will need one finely chopped large onion, 2 tablespoons of canola oil, 2 minced garlic cloves, 4 peeled and cubed large potatoes, 1 pound of Polish sausage or smoked kielbasa, 4 ounces or one can of chopped green chiles, 1 can of drained whole kernel corn.

    Position a large ovenproof skillet at a high heat setting. Start by cooking and stirring the onion. Now add garlic and cook for another minute. After this, add in the potatoes and cook for another 20 minutes without any cover. Stir every minute or so. Once you add kielbasa, keep cooking and stirring till the potatoes and meat are browned and tender. It will approximately take 10 or 15 minutes to achieve that. Lastly, put in the corn and chiles and let the heat pass through them. Enjoy your dish once cooked to perfection.

  7. Grilled Breakfast Burger

    For this recipe, you will need one pound of ground beef, one tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, one teaspoon of Montreal steak seasoning, ½ teaspoon of salt, ½ teaspoon of pepper, 3 tablespoons of softened and divided butter, 8 slices of Texas toast, 2 tablespoons of canola oil, 2.5 cups of thawed hash brown potatoes, 4 large eggs, 4 slices of American cheese, 8 strips of cooked bacon, and ¼ cup of seedless blackberry spreadable fruit.

    Start by combining the Worcestershire sauce, ground beef, ¼ teaspoon of salt, and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Make sure you give it a light but thorough mix. Now shape the mixture into 4 ½ inch patties. Grill the burgers by positioning them on a greased grill rack at a medium heat setting till the meat thermometer gives a reading of 160 degrees. This will require you to approximately grill the burgers for 4 to 5 minutes on each side.

    Take the toast slices and brush a tablespoon of butter on one side of each of them. Grill the slices with the butter side on the cooking surface till they turn brown. Now remove the toast and the burgers from the cooking area and keep them warm.

    Set the heat to a high setting. Position a large skillet on the grill rack and use it to heat oil. Put in the hash browns and press them in order to flatten them. Sprinkle the leftover pepper and salt over the hash browns. Keep frying in the covered cooking area for 12 to 15 minutes on either side or until you observe that the color has changed to a golden brown.

    Once done, lower the heat to a medium setting. Heat the leftover butter in this skillet. Add in the eggs and fry them as per your choice.

    Now comes the assembling part. Brush the blackberry spread across 4 slices of bread. In each slice, place a hash brown patty, a fried egg, a burger, 2 bacon strips, and a cheese slice. Top these slices with the remaining ones and enjoy!

  8. Grilled Cheesy Ham & Potato Packet

    To prepare grilled cheesy ham & potato packet, you will require 1-½ pounds of halved and thinly sliced medium red potatoes, 1 chopped medium green pepper, 1 chopped medium onion, ¼ teaspoon of pepper, 2 cups of cubed deli ham, and 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.

    Take a large bowl and put in the potatoes, onion, and green pepper. Position the articles in the center of a greased 24*18 inch portion of heavy-duty foil. To seal, make sure you fold the heavy-duty foil around the vegetables. Grill the mixture till the potatoes have turned tender or for a time period of 15 to 20 minutes.

    Once done, open the heavy-duty foil slowly to enable the steam to escape. Sprinkle the cheese and let the potatoes remain covered for 2 to 3 minutes till the cheese melts.
