We are well into grilling season now, and it is one of my favorite times of the year. I love being able to go to the grill when preparing meals for my family. It keeps my house cool and my kitchen clean. Did you even think about cooking your breakfast on the grill? Well, that is exactly what I am sharing with you today, a grilled breakfast bake.
The trick to making this dish work on the grill is by using indirect heat. I use the burners on the grill to bring the grill up to temperature. Next, I turn half the grill off and place the pan of breakfast bake on that side. Then, I use the burners on the other half of the grill just to help maintain the correct temperature inside the grill. Most grills have a thermometer on the lid of the grill to let you know the internal temperature of the grill.
Also, I love that this all cooks in an aluminum pan, so after you are done eating, you can just throw away the pan. Easy clean, one of the great benefits of grill season.
This recipe has some of those breakfast staples you’d expect like eggs and hash browns, oooh, and don’t forget the cheese! When it comes to cheese, I like to reach for local products and I reach for Cache Valley Cheese.
