Green Eggs & Pancakes

So..  has anyone else been hearing about this grill – The Big Green Egg??  One of our friends and my brother have just gotten this bessy.  And it’s all they can talk about! 


So this is how Big Green Egg describes themselves:

Welcome to the Big Green Egg, the Original American Designed Ceramic Cooker. Derived from an ancient clay cooker called a "kamado," the modern Big Green Egg has undergone many improvements since it was introduced in 1974. Especially significant is replacement of the clay used in early models with durable space-age ceramics developed specifically for Big Green Egg to make the EGG® virtually indestructible under ordinary cooking conditions. The EGG is a unique barbecue product, with unmatched flexibility and capabilities that surpass all other conventional cookers combined. It is a smoker, a grill and an oven and you can cook literally any food on it year around, from appetizers to entrees to desserts.

Sounds pretty snazzy, huh?!  I have been seeing pictures of different creations from my brother, Jon and our friend Eric via FB & texts.  So when we were in Charleston for the night @ my brothers I knew I wanted to see how this Big Green Egg worked!  The only meal we were  at the house for was breakfast so that’s what we did!

Jon has the Big Green Egg Cookbook


So we flipped through the breakfast section and decided on a Roasted Vegetable Frittata DSC_3719

AND – An Apple Upside down pancake… 


This is a shot before we flipped that beautiful pancake out. DSC_3740

And after the flip - Is it time to eat yet?? DSC_3741 Look at the steam just rolling off.

Yummy, huh! And here we are enjoying! 


So now I see what all the talk is about! It was fun to experiment and see what all the buzz is about.  Do you have an BGE?  Know anyone that does? Would love to hear your thoughts on it!
