Brunch dishes off the grill?

  • 7

Hi All - We are hosting a brunch this saturday and just got a new Weber Performer grill off CL (for $125!). Anyway, the mild weather in the Bay Area will permit us to host everything outside so I'm wondering if there are any dishes we can do off the grill? I think steak may be an obvious choice but I'm wondering if the foodies on this board have any other creative ideas.

This recipe looked interesting even though it's Ray Ray http://www.rachaelraymag.com/Recipes/.... Maybe other casserole dishes could work on the grill?

      I second the breakfast pizza idea. Whether you do red sauce, mozzarella and eggs on top or bechamel with ham and swiss and eggs on top, they're wonderful. Serve grilled fruit on the side (pineapple would be fun to play with the ham idea).

    2. Grilled peaches with pound cake toasted on the grill topped with a bit of whipped cream.

      1. Grilled artichokes are a great starter!

        1. I envy your weather!! Here are some things you can grill for your brunch:

          ~Shrimp, prunes, or anything wrapped in bacon
          ~mussels (clams, oysters) in one of those disposable aluminum pans
          ~mushrooms with a thin slice of Spanish chorizo, garlic, parsley and olive oil (aluminum pan)
          ~fruit kabobs
          ~homemade sausage patties

          You can have a salad, quiche or other breakfast casserole and a sweet bread plus your grilled foods. Hope you have a lovely brunch!

          1. Grilled pizza and a top your own bar
            Pineapples grill beautifully
            Pork tenderloin and chicken tenders are the quickest for kabobs/skewers (marinates abound)

            1. If you want to show some real chops on the grill, grill eggs. It's actually really quite simple - you just crack them into a muffin pan and place over medium to medium high heat for two to three minutes (though I generally just tell doneness by the way they look). Placed on grill toasted bread with grilled meat,* they make pretty cool little finger sandwiches. I suppose you could get fancy and cut the bread and meat to the same shape/size with a cookie cutter (but I confess I'm not a fancy guy and have never done so).

              *Being I'm in Jersey, I use pork roll, but ham or sausage would be great too.
