Cowboy Breakfast

We stumbled upon a fantastic breakfast recipe from Cowboy Charcoal, one of our go-to lump coal brands. We’ve relied on Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal for several grilling and smoking seasons, loving its consistent flavor and dependability. Inspired by others in our community who posted mouthwatering dishes, we bought our first cast iron skillet during the holidays. With the return of warmer weather, we’re excited to test out this recipe. Here’s to tasty adventures! Cheers!

Cowboy Charcoal Campfire Breakfast

Well, howdy partner! Let’s rustle up a Cowboy Charcoal Campfire Breakfast that’ll knock your boots off!

First off, light up that Cowboy Charcoal in yer trusty Big Green Egg Smoker – or whatever grill ya got. Get yer skillet sizzlin’, then toss in your favorite critters n’ crops. The magic’s in the butter – the more the merrier! Drop in them eggs, and by the time the rooster crows, you’ll have yourself a feast fit for a ranch king.

Cowboy Breakfast Skillet Recipe


  • 1/4 pound of the finest country sausage this side of the Mississippi
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper, chopped (like a tumbleweed in the wind)
  • Same goes for red onion and golden potatoes
  • 1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese (sharper than a rattlesnake’s fang)
  • 3 eggs, as fresh as the morning dew
  • 3 dollops of butter (don’t be stingy now)
  • A handful of chives, chopped
  • A dash of tabasco or that zydeco dust for a bit of a kick


  1. Light up that Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal and let it burn brighter than a desert sun for about 10-15 minutes. When it’s white-hot, gather it in the middle.
  2. Heat up yer skillet, then toss in the sausage till it’s golden.
  3. Chuck in them taters, onions, and a double dose of butter. Give ’em a good 8-minute dance in the skillet.
  4. Invite the red onions for a 2-minute jig.
  5. As everything gets all cozy and brown, slide in that last butter and let it work its magic.
  6. Flatten out your mix and crown it with the eggs. Wait for ’em to set about 5 minutes.
  7. Not a fan of sunny side up? Put a lid on it, cowboy!
  8. Sprinkle on that cheese and chives. Wait for the melt.
  9. Once it’s cooled off a tad, dig in!

Remember, folks: The first time we took a whirl with this skillet on the Cowboy Lump Coal, we rustled up some scallops. Tastier than a square dance on a Saturday night! So go on, follow the Cowboy Brand trail!
