There is no better way to wake up than with a huge skillet full of eggs, potatoes, and cheese. Introducing Derek Wolf from Over the Fire Cooking’s new Campfire Breakfast Skillet for those that crave fire cooked food in the morning. Jam packed with veggies, potatoes, sausage and eggs, this breakfast skillet will wake anyone up and get them ready for the day!
First, you are going to start by lighting some Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal to make a campfire. Then, you will cook all of your favorite veggies & meat inside the skillet until they are nice and brown. The key to browning food in cast iron is butter. We call for 3 tablespoons of butter, but don’t be afraid to add more for a larger skillet. Throw some eggs on top and you’re in for a great morning!
Equipment needed: Cowboy Charcoal, cast iron skillet, spatula, knife, cutting board
Prep: 10 mins
Use some Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal to light fire and let burn for 10-15 minutes. Once charcoal is white hot, push into middle for direct grilling
Preheat skillet 2-3 minutes for cooking. Add country sausage to skillet and let brown
Once sausage is browned, add chopped golden potatoes, onions & 2 tablespoons of butter to cook for 8 minutes. Stir occasionally
Add chopped red onion to the skillet and cook for another 2 minutes. As everything browns and cooks, add the last tablespoon of butter and let it sizzle into skillet
Prep skillet for eggs by flattening ingredients inside. Add eggs to the top of the skillet and let cook for 5 minutes
Option: Add a cover to your skillet if you do not like eggs sunny side up
Top the skillet with cheese & chives and let melt
Remove from grill and let cool
Serve and enjoy!
Cowboy® 100% All Natural Hickory Wood Chips add a smoky flavor to your grilled foods. The hearty aroma and full flavor of hickory wood gives meat an unmistakable woodsy taste. This flavor goes well with any meat, but pairs particularly well with beef, pork and chicken. Like all Cowboy® Wood Chips, these hickory wood chips burn more quickly than chunks, making them perfect for shorter cook times.
Enjoy the flavors of the open range. Across the western frontier, chuck wagon chefs grilled over aromatic wood fires and created “cowboy cuisine.” Our sauces descend from those heritage recipes. They enhance grilled food rather than overpower it. Pair with beef, pork, and poultry, and everything in between.
Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal lights quickly and burns long. It’s a favorite for barbecue fans because of the authentic smoky flavor it gives to your meals.
