When’s the last time you attempted to make grilled eggs?
Most people can do it, but they’re probably not as good as they could be.
But it’s not rocket science – grilled eggs add a delicious, smoky and creamy pairing with your aged steak.
We’ll show you how to make them step-by-step.
How to Make Grilled Eggs in the Shell
If you have a heat source, you can make a deliciously cooked egg. Especially if you’re using the grill as that heat source.
Just like cooking over a stove, there are two basic ways to grill an egg: in the shell and inside other protective coatings.
For this example, we’ll focus on how to cook an egg inside of its shell.
Here’s a video that demonstrates the process.
1. Choose the right egg
Choose one without cracks. Keep it out of the refrigerator for a few minutes to let it get closer to room temperature (you don’t want the instant heat to crack it while it’s on the grill).
2. Grill Quickly
Place it on the grill. Wait 2-4 minutes per side, and then turn it. Continue this process until the entire shell has turned light brown.
3. Season Thoroughly
Once the shell is brown, carefully take the egg off grill with your tongs.
Crack it open and select the right seasoning (we recommend our Crazy Chick Lemon Garlic, since it comes from a chicken after all).
How to Grill Eggs Outside the Shell
Grilled Eggs outside of its shell is where you can start to have some fun.
1. Choose your Skillet
You can use a simple skillet over the grill to make your eggs or you can be adventurous and grill your egg inside some other food.
The best example we can think of would be cutting a bell pepper in half to serve as a makeshift skillet.
2. Identify Your Ingredients
Egg + Pepper + Grill = a combination of tastes that will blow your mind.
3. Cook with Care
Eggs can be delicate, even on the regular stovetop. Keep a close eye when grilling them outside of the shell and maintain consistent heat.
