This is my version of a staple in many of the places I eat breakfast at. They often serve it to you in a little skillet, but I doubt they cook it in the skillet they serve it in. I put a bit of a twist in it by using a wok to quickly finish it off. When I've made fried rice on the grill I noticed how quickly the scrambled eggs cook in the wok. I take advantage of having 2 grills which I can use for different setups and cooking temps. On a single grill you could remove your flat top griddle or cast iron pan when finished griddle grilling. Then raise the temperature while you go back to the Kitchen to chop up the bacon and gather the eggs and other ingredients for round two of the grilling. I often vary the meats and other fillings a bit to suit my mood. On to the pictures:
What would a good homemade breakfast be without some fresh squeezed orange juice? I use the juicer attachment to make slow work of the task of juicing the oranges. Yes it is slow and takes lots of oranges, but the end results are well worth it. Particularly on a cold day in January when these pictures were shot.
The grills are preheating on this 12 degree day in January. The grill in the background is preheating to 400 degrees and will be used with two half moon cast iron griddle grates. The grill in the foreground is being preheated to 600 degrees and is fitted with something called a spider which is intended to hold a wok.
The grill is at 400 degrees and the two griddle grates were installed and are also preheated. One is installed flat side up and the other ridge side up.
The ingredients are ready. This version was just for two, so it uses 6 eggs, 2 English muffins, 1 cup of a 4 cheddar cheese blend, a diced red bell pepper, a 6 oz. ham steak-diced, 1/2 pound of ground hot Italian sausage, 4 strips of bacon, kosher salt and ground black pepper.
The items that will be griddle grilled are outside and ready to go.
The muffins get grilled on the flat top, while the bacon gets grilled on the ridge side. When the muffins are done they are replaced by the ground Italian sausage.
The bacon is cooling on paper towels and will get diced once I am back in the Kitchen.
Now I've set up shop at the grill that has been preheated to 600 degrees. The wok has been preheated and a tablespoon of peanut oil has been added and heated.
First up on the wok is the bell peppers which are stir fried until they are soft, around a minute.
Next up is the diced ham which is stir fried for a minute together with the peppers.
The cooked bacon and ground sausage are added and are quickly stir fried just long enough to mix in with the other ingredients.
The eggs are added in now and are quickly stir fried. This goes very fast-under a minute for 6 eggs.
Time to eat! This is a really tasty and hearty breakfast and the fillings can be whatever you like. Often after eating this breakfast, I don't eat again until supper time.
