In this essay, Meiko shares why grilling breakfast is easy, and the tools and can take to cook up the most important meal of the day.
Sure, grilling is typically associated with cuts of meat, burgers, and hot dogs. But who says grilling is just for dinner? Breakfast can be just as delicious when cooked on the grill!
One of the most important things to remember when grilling breakfast is to pay attention to temperature. Breakfast foods can be delicate, so it’s important to make sure the grill is not too hot or too cold.
Including fresh fruit for breakfast is pretty traditional, but adding sturdy fruits like peaches, nectarines, and bananas are all great options for the grill. Simply slice them in half, brush with a little bit of butter or neutral oil, and place them on the grates over moderate heat until they are soft and slightly charred. The natural sugars in the fruit will caramelize on the grill, giving them a delicious flavor.
Grilling is also a great way to reheat leftovers from the night before. Just about anything can be grilled for breakfast, including chicken, steak, potatoes, and vegetables. So, if you’re looking for a creative way to give leftovers a new life, try grilling them for breakfast!
Some breakfast foods can be a bit tricky to grill, so it’s always helpful to have the right tools on hand. With these tools in your arsenal, grilling breakfast will be a breeze:
With these tips in mind, you’ll be grilling breakfast like a pro in no time! So, fire up the grill and enjoy a delicious and healthy breakfast that’s sure to start your day off right.
