We came across this awesome breakfast recipe by one of our favorite lump coal brands – Cowboy Charcoal. We’ve been using the Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal for a few grilling/smoking seasons and enjoy the flavor and reliability. Over the holidays we purchased our first cast iron skillet after watching a few peeps in our community post delicious food using it on the grill. Anyways, I know we’ll be giving this recipe a try now the warmer weather is back… Cheers!
First, you are going to start by lighting some Cowboy Charcoal in your grill… We are using the Akorn Kamado Red Smoker. Then, you will cook all of your favorite veggies & meat inside the skillet until they are nice and brown. The key to browning food in cast iron is butter. We call for 3 tablespoons of butter, but don’t be afraid to add more for a larger skillet. Throw some eggs on top and you’re in for a great morning!
Grilled Breakfast Skillet
- 1/4 pound country sausage
- 1/4 cup bell pepper, chopped
- 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup golden potatoes, chopped
- 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 3 fresh eggs
- 3 tablespoons of butter
- Handful of chopped chives
- Dash of tabasco or zydeco dust (PFF addition)
- Use some Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal to light fire and let burn for 10-15 minutes. Once charcoal is white hot, push into middle for direct grilling
- Preheat skillet 2-3 minutes for cooking. Add country sausage to skillet and let brown
- Once sausage is browned, add chopped golden potatoes, onions & 2 tablespoons of butter to cook for 8 minutes. Stir occasionally
- Add chopped red onion to the skillet and cook for another 2 minutes. As everything browns and cooks, add the last tablespoon of butter and let it sizzle into skillet
- Prep skillet for eggs by flattening ingredients inside. Add eggs to the top of the skillet and let cook for 5 minutes
- Option: Add a cover to your skillet if you do not like eggs sunny side up
- Top the skillet with cheese & chives and let melt
- Remove from grill and let cool
- Serve and enjoy!
-Our first skillet test over the Cowboy Lump Coal was searing some scallops. DELICIOUS!!!
