Breakfast BBQ ideas

I'm hosting a breakfast bbq to start off 4th of July activities and looking for some good grilling ideas.

Ideas so far, breakfast burritos with grilled bacon, sausage (regular and veggie versions) plus potatoes, onions, red peppers, mushrooms.

Breakfast kabobs: tater tots/potatoes wrapped in bacon and veggies.

Any other grilling suggestions?

  1. Grilled breakfast pizza would also work. Breakfast is a hard one to do on the grill.

      How about a sweet pizza with cinnamon sugar and butter with grilled stone fruits on top? Grilled fruit is a great option as well - peaches, pineapple, nectarines.

    2. Grilled scallops and/or shrimp, if your budget can take it, are a nice contrast to all the
      fatty meats.

      Also, if your BBQ has a side burner, good ol' steak and eggs always goes over well.
      You can cut the steak into 2 oz portions so people can try a bit of everything, plus
      a 2oz steak cooks in about 2 minutes, same time as the eggs.

      1. Oh, your ideas, and everyone else's, all sound wonderful! We love to do breakfast on the grill. We have a griddle that we use for sausages or bacon or pancakes. (It's not that big, alas.) As someone else suggested, we also have done breakfast pizza on the grill with our pizza stone.

        I think your key limitation will be the size of your grill and the number of people...


        1. You can also do breakfast quesadillas. Maybe some jack cheese and bacon or chorizo.

          You can also toast bagels/english muffins on the grill too.

          Grilled fruits. Split and grill some peaches and then top with yogurt. Or grill up all sorts of fruit and chop and add to yogurt and granola.

          1. I saw a show on food tv where they removed the orange from the peel, leaving most of the peel in tact. They filled the orange peel w/ yeast dough and cinnamon sugar/butter, wrapped in foil and cooked it. It sounds really good.

              That was on Ham on the Street on the food network. It did look really good. Recipe is probably on their website.

                Thanks--here it is:


                He used buttermilk biscuits in a can, though. I wonder whatever made me think that Ham might have used homemade dough??? This seems easy, though, and fun to do.

                That sound great. I'll have to try that next time we go car camping. Thanks for the link!
