Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Your favorite meal to Egg in an hour?

I'm less than a month in to Eggstacy and could not be enjoying it more. I'm even managing to eat better during the week by egging fish and veggies during the week so I can rack up the cholesterol points with long smokes of MEAT on the weekends. But I'm looking for more ideas for after-work, weekday Egging that will allow my wife and I to plate up dinner before 9 pm. You guys have such great ideas, I would love to hear what you most love to Egg in an hour?

  • Egg in an Hour/90 minutes with warm up: Burgers, Brats, Steak, Wings, Chicken Breasts, Chicken thighs, Chicken Legs,  Spatchcock chicken, Pork Chops, Veggies, Cornbread.  I could go on depending on whether or not you have things prepped before hand or not. Anything you make on your kitchen stove/oven you can do on the Egg. Your imagination is your only limitation.

  • Prior to the Egg, my family ate pork tenderloin very infrequently.  Since getting the egg, it seems to be on the menu almost once / week.  I typically toss a frozen tenderloin in brine before leaving for work in the morning.  Once I get home, fire up the egg, rub the tenderloin while the egg heats up and once I'm cooking, it's <25 minutes to the plate.  Great easy meal during the work week.

  • I think a little planning would be involved so as to keep your waiting time as short as possible. Neither of us here get home till after 6PM, sometimes later. I try to cook things on weekends which will give me a few nice lunches to take to work as opposed to going/sending out. Pretty much the same deal here, if it's ready to go all you have to do is fire up the Egg. I prepare lunches the night before, no reason why you can't prepare next night's dinner the same way so you're ready to go as soon as you get home.

    Beef fajitas are a quick cook I do frequently. 1 bell pepper, 1 onion, and a skirt or flank steak (for two people). It takes a bit longer if you want to make your own tortillas, guac, salsa, but you can get store bought if tight on time.

    Stir fry. Light Egg, chop veggies & meat. Egg should be hot by now, add wok and eat 10 mins later. About 40 mins total if you are doin a simple stir fry

  • Spatchcock chicken takes about an hour and yields leftovers. Also anything grilled...burgers, fish, pork chops. Also, there's always hot dogs :)

  • I will offer this. Cook in quantities that allow you to have leftovers that you just re-heat.

  • Fajitas are a great quick cook and makes for handy leftovers. I like to take it to work, bring some salsa and eat it for lunch without the tortillas just to keep it simple as for what I have to bring for lunch. Just heat the meat and veggies, pour on some salsa and eat with a fork.

    There's really a ton of options in an hour.
