Easter Dinner Cook... I'm Back

hapsterhapster Posts: 6,672
Back from the shore and looking forward to egging tomorrow. Nothing too crazy, in fact the ham will be simply heated in the oven to 140IT. It's one of those pre cooked blah hams...

Egging some lamb pops using the BGE Cook Book recipe and some bacon wrapped asparagus.

Happy Easter everyone!

    Try wrapping that asparagus in prosciutto some time.  Blanch the asparagus, then wrap in prosciutto.  Throw on the grill for a couple of minutes.  De-licious.

    That's the recipe I was thinking of doing this... But we love asparagus just about any way you can prep it; especially grilled.

    For all the veterans out there... Would you do the asparagus bundles direct or indirect?

    Depends on how thick your bacon is and what you cooked before, i'm in the not take hot things out of the egg camp so I would probably just go with the method that my main dish was cooked with. I like direct for just plain asparagus. But you might be able to let the bacon crisp up a little more if it is indirect, which is my method for ABTs. 

    I wish I could get people I cook for to eat lamb, that looks like a great meal!

  • I have heard mix reviews on the BGE cook book, but if it has more stuff like those lamb chops, maybe it would be worth the cost vs free recipes on the Web? Do you cook from it often?

    I wouldn't call myself a veteran but I recently did those bacon wrapped asparagus. I did them raised direct at 350.

    The book was a gift from the inlaws... This is really the first straight from the book recipe that I am trying.


    @Que_n_Brew... I was planning on the same for the asparagus :)

    Here is the rest of the story... The ham was okay, the lamb and asparagus were outstanding; both will be repeated :)
