Tailgaters’ Breakfast

Friday, July 9, 2010 @ 02:07 PM

I came across the recipe a while back. It came from Panera Bread but it can very easily be made into your own. It can be made the night before, then refrigerated and thrown on the Brinkamann grill first thing in the morning for a perfect tailgater’s breakfast. Now fuss, no muss! There are many combos that can be done, and then tweaked to your own preferences.

Start with 6-8 pieces of French, Italian, Sourdough¬† or in a pinch regular white bread, 1″ thick slices cut into cubes. Stale is good.

5 beaten eggs or liquid fake works too.

2 cups half and half  (low fat works too.)

2 tbsp butter, softened

1 1\2 cups shredded cheddar (now as I said, this recipe can be made into your own, use whatever kind of cheese you want, Pepper Jack, Sharp cheddar, a combo of cheeses.)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp dry mustard

3 scallions(green onions) chopped

1 tsp fresh parsley(optional)(like I said, make it your own, oregano,tarragon, thyme, what is your preference?)

Now you are going to add meat & vegetables. Use one of each or mix and match…it’s your tailgate party…what do you & your friends prefer?:

1 lb sausage, ham, or bacon or combo, cooked and crumbled

1\3-1\2 cup chopped vegetables…broccoli, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, well drained spinach…whatever floats your boat & you think will mesh well with the meat you choose.

Now use your softened butter to grease a 13″ X 9″ pan…for tailgating sake, aluminum works just as well as anything else. Place your bread cubes in the pan. Add meat, vegetables, herbs, and scallions. Give a rough mix. Top with cheese. Whip together eggs, half & half, salt & dry mustard. Pour over the top. Cover with plastic wrap & refrigerate overnight.

When you are ready to cook…get your grill ready for indirect grilling. Remove foil, and place on grill to cook, 350 degrees for 35-45 mins…or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean.

So…you can make this at home the night before the game, or make over a race weekend. It makes a great tailgating breakfast. It’s set up the night before so if you will be grilling lots of food later, this is a nice easy start to the day.
