Breakfast Cups on the Char-Broil Big Easy

These low-carb breakfast cups are the perfect fast morning meal. I usually make a batch on Sunday for the week’s breakfasts. You can mix them up so you don’t get bored. Add chopped spinach. Or mushrooms. Substitute bacon for the sausage. Use egg whites instead of whole eggs. Add a splash of milk. Add some hot sauce. You name it. You can’t go wrong with breakfast cups made on the Char-Broil Big Easy.
Breakfast Cups on the Char-Broil Big Easy
You can just as easily bake these breakfast cups in the oven, but I love my Char-Broil Big Easy, and I love cooking with it, so I tossed them into the cooker. For cooking in the oven bake them at 350 F until done.

These cups keep well in the freezer, so make extra and keep some on hand for those days when you just want to grab a quick breakfast. Toss them into the microwave for 30 seconds or so, and it’s time to eat!

Did you know you can make your entire breakfast on your Big Easy? Make bacon, breakfast sausage and even eggs!

Ingredients

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 pound bulk breakfast sausage cooked, crumbled
  • Handful cheddar cheese
  • Your favorite seasoning

Instructions

  • Fire up your Big Easy.
  • Spray ramekins with non-stick spray.
  • Crack eggs into a large bowl. Use a fork to beat them.
  • Add in the sausage and cheese, along with your favorite seasoning to taste.
  • Use a fork to combine everything.
  • Divide mixture between the ramekins.
  • Place 3 ramekins in the Big Easy basket and the other 3 in the bunk bed. Lower into the Big Easy and cook for 20-30 minutes or until the eggs are done. I test them using a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, they are done.
  • Remove from the Big Easy and let cool before handling. The eggs should pop right out of the ramekins. If not, run a knife along the edges to loosen them then turn them over to remove the egg mixture.

Fire-Roasted Eggs on the Char-Broil Big Easy

I love my Char-Broil Big Easy. It gets a workout on a regular basis. Usually, it’s loaded with poultry or on occasion, ribs. This time I set out to try something totally new: fire-roasted eggs. Why? Because I wanted to make a batch of egg salad, that’s why!

Fire-Roasted Eggs on the Char-Broil Big EasyFire-Roasted Eggs on the Char-Broil Big Easy turned out to be pretty time-sensitive. I needed just 8 eggs for my egg salad, but I put few extra into the basket to test as I went so I could get the timing down. It was a cloudy, breezy day, about 60 F out. Different weather conditions could cause your eggs to cook quicker… or slower.

After 12 minutes I had the perfect soft-cooked egg. A little runny yoke. Perfect for dipping bread into.

After 15 minutes the eggs were the equivalent of soft-boiled. Almost on the edge of hard-boiled. If I’d gone much longer I suspect they’d either be way overcooked or explode. That’d be a mess.

I let the eggs rest for 5 minutes then put them into cold water and shelled them. Minutes later I’m enjoying a nice egg salad sandwich.

Did you know you can make your entire breakfast on your Big Easy, not just roasted eggs? Make bacon, breakfast sausage, and breakfast cups!

Ingredients

  • Eggs

Instructions

  • Fire up your Big Easy and let it get hot.
  • Place eggs in bottom of the Big Easy basket. Do not overcrowd. I do not recommend using the Big Easy Bunk Basket as the top of the cooker cooks at a different temperature than the bottom.
  • Insert basket into the Big Easy and cook eggs. You might want to test an egg after 12 minutes to get a feel for how long you'll need to cook them.
  • When done, remove eggs and let rest 5 minutes then transfer to cold water to cool. Remove shells and enjoy!
