Start Your Day with a Grill - You've got that great new outdoor kitchen or a fabulous new grill and you love to use it so don't forget that most important meal of the day - breakfast! You don't have to wait until the heat of the day to fire up; what better way to get the family out of bed and happily productive on a Saturday morning? Or invite friends and family over for Sunday brunch! Drag out the cornhole, mix some mimosas and start the day out right. There are dozens of delicious breakfast options that can be cooked on a grill, from sweets to sausages. (Plus a lot of these recipes can be used for that other most important meal of the day - brinner!)
Mmmmm, donuts. Yep you can grill them. And believe it or not, donuts taste even better once they've been grilled; that sugary glaze takes on a warm, golden, caramelized taste. Just toss a plain glazed yeast donut on a well-oiled grill over medium heat for about 30 seconds per side. Add some ice cold milk for dipping, or, if you want to get fancy, whipped cream and berries are a nice addition. Glazed donuts can also be sliced and grilled to use for breakfast sandwiches, but these are not for the faint of heart, or those inclined to heart burn.
Not into donuts? You can also grill fruit. Many fruits lend themselves to grilling; peaches, nectarines, pears, pineapple, bananas, grapefruit, mangoes, and cantaloupe all lend themselves nicely to grilling.
Slice the peaches in half, removing the pit. Brush with cooking oil and place on the grill for about five minutes over medium heat; you want them soft, but not falling apart. Serve warm with whipped cream, vanilla yogurt or ice cream. Peachy.
Make a sauce with 2 Tablespoons rum, 2 Tablespoons honey, and teaspoon cinnamon. Cut 4 firm bananas in half, lengthwise. Leave the peel on. Cover and grill for about 3 minutes. Brush with sauce. Return to grill for about 5 more minutes, until tender. Serve warm with whipped cream, vanilla yogurt or ice cream.
And of course, the queen of breakfast herself, French toast, is ideal for the grill...
