Info
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.
