Our Labor Day weekend began a little low-key. Our new grill had arrived, and HH had it all put together and ready for cookin’. Problem was, our son (the master griller) couldn’t be here, and our daughter wouldn’t breeze in until Labor Day afternoon.
HH and I started our party, just the two of us. It all began with the breakfast we grilled on Saturday morning.
On the menu (all of it to be made on the grill):
3-ingerdient scratch biscuits
Are you wondering how to cook biscuits or fried eggs on a grill?
Some friends told us about this grill mat they ordered and liked, so we placed an order, too – even before we ordered the grill. (Who does that, right?)
Just so you know, I will not be compensated by Grill Tactics for giving my opinion on their product. I just wanted you to know because it’s a great product. We have used it a ton these last three weeks!
There are other brands that serve the same purpose, but I thought this one was the best deal with very good reviews. (I will receive a small commission from Amazon if you order mats through this Amazon link.)
Onward to breakfast!
I made a batch of biscuits and placed them on the grill mat.
We turned the temperature to 375 degrees, which is the oven temp I normally use for biscuits. They were soft on the inside and fully cooked.
Next time, we’ll turn the heat down a bit since the bottoms got too brown. It makes sense that they browned too much on the bottom since they’re so close to the heat source. (We cut that part off, and our bottom-less biscuits were yummy.)
Meat gets grill marks like it was cooked directly on the grates.
Finally, it was time for the egg test. The grill manual said to avoid using butter, as it drips down to the burners. Next time, we’ll use vegetable spray so the eggs will turn loose easier.
HH’s grilled breakfast was ready for his fork!
Ha. Even the eggs have grill marks. 🙂 It all was amazingly good.
We made hamburgers that night for dinner, but we didn’t use the grill mat. We were in testing mode with the new grill.
My cheeseburger dressed and ready for “down the hatch”.
I’ll be happy to share the grill information if you’d like. Of course, we ordered it from Amazon, too.
The next day, we cooked boneless chicken breasts on the grill.
The cookbook that came with the grill has a marinade recipe we tried and liked a lot.
I’ll share it with you soon, as well as these grilled vegetables I put together. We used the grill mat for the veggies. They had that nice grilled flavor – and markings.
On Labor Day, we grilled pork chops. I marinated them using the same recipe as the chicken breasts. And…I forgot to take pictures, but they were tasty and a little over done. Like I say, we’re getting used to the new grill with different thicknesses of meat.
So, are you in the market for a new grill?
