We all love the hustle and bustle of a great afternoon or evening barbecue, when everyone is around, the drinks are being poured, and good cheer is spread. However, we want to let you in on one our great pleasures, the breakfast barbecue.
One of lives finest pleasures as a grilling connoisseur is to wake up early and watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee in one hand while the smoke gently rises from the grill. A peaceful morning grilling session has to be one of the best ways to starts the day. We urge that you give it go.
So, set that alarm, get the coffee ready and enjoy the tranquillity.
Below are a few things we like to cook in the morning on the grill.
Grill the bread over the charcoal or wood, serve with whatever you like, but for those with a sweet tooth, try rubbing the toast with a soft ripe peach or pear after a good buttering.
Very similar to the baked egg, get a nice deep frying pan or skillet and butter it up. Crack the eggs in and top with some fresh heavy cream, a bit of parmesan cheese and cheddar, sprinkle on some fresh herbs and breadcrumbs. Once the egg stiffens, try grilling on a bit of an angle to help get a bit of that smoky flavour in the eggs, we find the breadcrumbs are perfect for capturing that taste.
Can breakfast be the same without some delicious bacon? Get your tasty meat, cut it nice and thick and pour on some maple syrup along with a bit of raw brown sugar. Cooking it on the grill will get that delicious smokey flavour impregnated into the meat. The sugar and maple syrup will caramelise nicely untwining with the salty, smoky bacon creating an irresistible combination.
Salt and pepper a thick fillet of salmon, grill or smoke the fish until it flakes at the touch of a fork, serve up on a grilled bagel with some cream cheese and a sprinkle of parsley.
Similar to a Yorkshire pudding in texture, this breakfast treat puffs up dramatically on a hot grill. Use your standard high rising Dutch pancake recipe; make sure the pan or skillet is red-hot. Swirl the sizzling butter to coat the pan then pour in the batter, keep the lid shut for the first 15 minutes and cook for a total of about 20 minutes; Throw in plenty of wood chippings for that smoky taste.
So, fire up the grill and give it a go, let us know what you come up.
