Breakfast on the Grill
The first step was to whip up some pancake batter.
The ingredients are mixed in a food processor
This recipe makes a triple sized batch, the remaining two servings are refrigerated.
This Williams-Sonoma chopper makes quick work of the red & green bell peppers & onion for the grilled potatoes
The original recipe called for the potatoes & veggies to be cooked in a foil pack. I cooked it using a mesh grill pan
I tossed the potatoes in olive oil and then added cumin, salt & pepper. Then I added the peppers & onions & tossed again
Out at grill with all of the various dishes. You can see the middle grill grate has been replaced with the modular griddle.
The grill pan with potatoes is on the left grate, the sausages on right. The bacon is on the griddle. The grill is at 400.
The sausages & bacon are done and on the warming rack. The potatoes are still on & the pancakes & toast are under way.
The pancakes are almost done & the fried eggs have been started.
I tried using egg rings for the fried eggs & they worked pretty well, but as you can see they did leak.
Everything is ready to go from left to right: fried eggs, grilled potatoes, sausage & bacon, pancakes & toast
A hearty breakfast indeed.

I have long wanted to try making breakfast on the grill. But I didn’t want to simply use the grill to make something I could make the same way indoors. I wanted to do something where the grill improved on the indoor version. Another factor is my grill has a modular drop-in cast iron griddle grate that can replace a grill grate. I found the outline of a recipe on eHow.com and made several changes. They called for a foil packet version of the potato & veggies. I decided to cook this in a grill pan to get crispy grilled veggies. I made my own pancake batter & found the griddle had enough real estate to cook 3 pancakes and 4 eggs at once which would have been tough indoors. I did the toast on the grill and tried the first half of my bacon on the grill. I couldn’t get the grate temp down lower than 400 and I had heard you needed something closer to 350. The huge conflagration that ensued was not a total surprise. I’d reserved half the bacon just in case so I restarted the bacon on the griddle. From there everything went well. One thing I want to explore is some other options for holding some of the items that finish up first. The warming rack worked but I’d like to see if I can get the items to stay warmer with continuing to cook.
