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!

Sat breakfast on the mini - Ham & Veg Frittata

calikingcaliking Posts: 6,977
The mini is turning out to be the favored breakfast cooker on the weekends. Made a ham and veggie frittata this time.

It was pretty simple. Fired up the mini. 

Groceries: Smoked ham (found while freezer diving), tomatoes, green chilies, red bell peppers, scallions.

Fried up the veggies first.

Added the ham next, and let it all get friendly.

Beat 4 eggs and added to the skillet. Closed the lid to help cook the top. I placed a cast iron fajita plate under the skillet to keep the frittata form burning.

The top was a little on the soft side, so I flipped it over onto the hot CI fajita plate.

Took the frittata off before it burned, so I consider it a win! Still learning how the mini works best, but I'm loving it so far.

    Looks good, Cali.  Kinda like an omelet without cheese?

    Ok lets see if the third time is a charm.. Looks great! I like using my small for quicker meals and can only imagine the mini will be up and running a little bit quicker. Crazy to think how this time last year you didn't even have one egg, now it seems the three eggs get a good share of your cooking load to all your great outdoor cooking devices! I did try to comment earlier but it wouldn't let me.

    @Solson005: :) you hit the nail on the head. 

    I had been lusting after an egg for several years, and then when I finally brought one home, it was a slippery slope. Currently cooking almost exclusively on the eggs, since I'm trying to get my techniques down and relearn stuff. My other cookers are feeling a little left out, but I'll make it up to them some time!

    @caliking - The frittata looks super. Going to try same on my Mini.

    BTW- I noticed you have the thermometer on a cork.......and the reason for that is?

    So you can fit large pieces of meat in there without the thermometer hitting it.

    @Springram: what Chubbs said. Haven't cooked any big hunks of meat in the mini yet, but I figured I should be ready!
