Eggs On the Grill

Well Folks: Today I thought I would talk about doing something on the grill, that most of you wouldn't consider cooking on the grill. That would be eggs. Yes, you can cook eggs on the grill it is really pretty easy and they come out great. All I have done is a hard boiled style but by cutting the cooking time  you could do a soft boil style, it would just take a few tries to get the timing down. I'm also going to tell you how to do  a Cadbury Chocolate Egg wrapped in BACON that will have all your friends talking.

So lets grill some hard boiled eggs. First take the egg carton and lay it on it's side for about 2 hours . That will center the yolk. With the grill set up for indirect cooking  and get the temperature up to about 275 to 300 degrees,place the eggs on the cool side,and close the lid. After about 15 minutes remove the eggs and let them cool.  After cooling, peel the shell and  you should have a nicely done hard boil egg. You should try this in the beginning with only one or two eggs and see if you have the timing down right. Adjust the time on the grill after doing a couple of eggs. If you leave them on too long or if the fire is too hot you can blow the egg up. But its a cooked egg so you really won't have too much of a mess. Kids will think that's cool.

Now lets do something that's fun and Damn tasty. That's a BACON wrapped Cadbury Chocolate Egg. To do this, the first thing you need to do is freeze the egg. After a few hours in the freezer it's time to wrap the egg with thin sliced BACON. Wrap the egg side to side and end to end you want to encase the egg in BACON. With the grill set up for indirect cooking place the eggs on the cooler side . Let the eggs cook until the BACON has crisped up. You will have to turn the eggs during the cook to get the BACON cooked on all sides. To answer the question YES the Chocolate will melt that's why you freeze the eggs before cooking to slow the melting down while the BACON gets crisp. These are SUPER RICH one per person is plenty.

Now before you say that doesn't sound good try it. BACON and Chocolate  how can you not at least try it. Let me know what you think.
