They do say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day… so why not make it the best way you know how: on the grill! The options are endless when you decide to start your day HOT and fire up your BBQ Island grill. Whether you like sweet or savory, light or hearty, there are three essentials that should be included in every well-rounded breakfast meal: protein, whole grains, and fruits and veggies. This balance will keep you full longer and keep you energized throughout your busy day. The hardest part is just deciding what tasty meal to make for you and your family!
If you’re looking for something quick, easy, and on the sweeter side, look no further than a classic french toast! After soaking slices of whole wheat bread with a mixture of eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar, set your grill on medium to low heat. Place your bread slices on the grill for about 7 minutes, until they are golden brown. Top with fresh fruit, honey, or syrup for the perfect sweet start to your day.
In need of something that you can take on the go? No worries here. Satisfy your breakfast cravings with a Bacon, Egg, and Grilled Cheese sandwich! Prep your eggs in a large skillet (scrambled or over medium works best) while preparing your bacon. Lay 2 slices of whole wheat bread on your grill, and top with your favorite cheese! As it starts to melt, add your egg mixture and crispy bacon, and cook until bread is toasted to your liking. (Pro tip: Swap the bacon out for sausage, steak, or even pulled pork for a unique and delicious breakfast sandwich — leftovers work great too!)
If a meatier option is what you need, our friends at Traeger Grills have a delicious Sausage Breakfast Bake recipe sure to please your entire family. This dish, packed with sausage, bacon, potatoes, bell peppers, and your favorite cheese is a protein-packed start to your morning.
