Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Fully Loaded Lasagna

Whipped this up and let me tell you that a good lasagne is spectacular on the Egg!

This baby had four cheeses, garlic sausage, broccoli, green peppers, and cremini mushrooms.

The homemade sauce started with a white wine and sausage fat reduction with chopped garlic. Once fully reduced I added olive oil and chopped onion, followed by San Marzano tomatoes, black pepper, sea salt, oregano, and a healthy dose of pecorino romano cheese.

Enjoy some pics! They are named appropriately. BTW Sorry I cheated and didn't boil the noodles on the egg.

    Not real sure I'm raising the bar. Hell I'm lucky if I get it back halfway to where it was when I made that pork chop-mangrate disaster I called a joke.  :-\"

  • That lasagna looks awesome. It does not make up for the horrific pork chop photo, but it is the first step on the road to forgiveness. nice work brownie.

    The best looking foods prepared on the egg seem to be this lasagna, WOW, and pizza. 
    Are we sure the egg was not originally from Italy?

    The slice looks like it was professionally staged - excellent cook, what detail.

    Marco Polo brought pasta back from China, the eggs ancestors originate in China?  Coincidence?

    I'm looking to do a smoked lasagna and the pictures of your lasagna look so good they are inspiring me to get busy. Nicely done.

    Hey @Brownie, this looks really great, thanks for sharing. Did you add any wood to increase smokiness or just straight lump? Doesn't seem like it would be needed, but I almost always add a single piece of some sort of wood, almost out of habit more than anything. Truly beautiful cook...

    Cheers -

    @Black_Badger ; I didn't do any smoke... in fact I used Natures Own hardwood blend so I wouldn't get hardly any smoke. But in the past for a smokey lasagna I have smoked the veggies prior to chopping and inserting in the lasagna. See this older thread Lasagna success!
