Grilled Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Ideas to Cook on Your Barbecue

When most people think of an outdoor BBQ, they think of foods like hamburgers and hot dogs. While the classics are a great go-to dinner option, now and again, it’s fun to spice up your BBQ game. Since most of us are spending more quality time with our grills, we want to share some delicious recipe ideas to show you just how versatile your grill can be. We’re sharing the best grilled breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas to cook on your barbecue. Let’s get cooking outdoors!

Grilled Breakfast Ideas

Grilled French Toast Skewers

Rather than serving up traditional french toast, think outside the plate! Add bite-size pieces of bread to skewers and create a hand-held, barbecued version of this breakfast favourite.

Just about any grill will do when it comes to this fun recipe. We recommend the Napoleon Rogue R425 – an excellent gas BBQ with Napoleon’s iconic Wave cast iron cooking grids and stainless steel burners.

Grill up a side of bacon and serve with fresh fruit and local maple syrup for a sweet and savoury start to your day! Follow this Food Network recipe for delicious Grilled French Toast Kabobs.

Grilled Eggs

Take one of the most versatile ingredients – eggs – and add them to your BBQ for a breakfast or brunch menu item sure to delight your taste buds! Preheat your grill and use aluminum foil to create a little round boat for fried eggs or a rectangular one for scrambled.

Use the Napoleon TravelQ Pro285E next time you’re out camping, boating or RV-ing and you’ll have quick and easy eats wherever you go.

Grilled Lunch Ideas

Barbecued Pizza

You’ve spent the morning working outside in the garden, splashing in the pool with the kids, and shooting a round of golf. Now it’s time for a bite to eat and you want something easy but delicious. Use a tube of refrigerated dough and add toppings of your choice to grill up your own personal pizza.

Did you know you can cook dough right on the grill?! Try the Louisiana Grills – LG Ceramic Series K22 that uses all-natural lump charcoal for that smoky aroma we all know and love during BBQ season.

Want a super speedy lunch? If you have leftover grilled chicken from last night’s dinner, try this Barbecued Chicken Pizza recipe from Taste of Home.

Grilled Dinner Ideas

Grilled Corn Salad

You may tend to stick to the classics, but dinner on the barbecue doesn’t have to be boring. Sometimes just switching up the side dish you serve can change the entire meal experience.

Don’t we all look forward to picking up some fresh corn on the cob from a local produce stand in the summertime? Rather than eating it right off the cob, grill the corn and char up some red peppers, jalapenos, and mix in quinoa to create a delicious healthy side salad.

Are you a multi-tasker when you make dinner? The Delta Heat DHGB38-C has two stationary side shelves with integrated utensil hooks, giving you space to work your “grill master” magic!

Bacon-Wrapped Everything

Is it “App Night” at your place? Whether it’s date night or an evening with family and friends, having an appetizer feast is fun for everyone. Why not include some barbecued items on the menu?! We recommend bacon-wrapped… anything! From jalapeño poppers to potato bites, if you can wrap it in bacon and stick it on a skewer, it’s sure to be a hit.

Want to really impress your guests? Show off with the world’s best smoker and grill – The Big Green Egg. This barbecue delivers steakhouse quality by using charcoal for flavour and reaching up to 750° to sear and seal in the juices.

Grilled Dessert Ideas

BBQ S’mores

A little flame is all you need to have your favourite campfire treat any time of the week! Firepits and fire tables are an increasingly popular way to have an outdoor fireside experience while still complying with local regulations.

It may not be a traditional backyard bonfire but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the ooey-gooey deliciousness of roasted marshmallows and s’mores!  We recommend the Dekko Bravo – a gas firepit with 60,000 BTU’s burner, available in a variety of finishes, perfect for any backyard. Get all the fixin’s ready then sit back and enjoy a delicious dessert with the family.

If you really want to indulge, try making these Banana Boat S’mores by Betty Crocker. Fill a sliced banana (still in the peel) with marshmallows, chocolate chips, and graham cracker pieces, wrap in foil and bake over the fire. Talk about a delicious way to end your day!
