Breakfast Bombs Recipe – It’s Easier Than You Think!

Welcome to BBQ Recipe Z. I'm Jack Smith. Today I’m going to be showing everyone how to cook up breakfast bombs. First let's look at the ingredients and equipment you need to get this recipe together.

For this recipe, all you're going to need is:

  • 2 large russet potatoes
  • 1 package Johnsonville original breakfast sausages
  • 12 slices of bacon
  • 4 large eggs
  • Cheese is optional

The only equipment you need is aluminum foil.

First thing, let's go outside get a BBQ fired up and I answer the question: yes this recipe can be done in an oven but the barbecues better. Today, I'll be cooking on the Weber 22 and a half inch kettle filled with hardwood lump charcoal, just use a fire starter cube. Let that get going and we'll go inside and get everything prepped. The prep works real easy. Get the potatoes a wash and pat dry with paper towels, go up the end about an inch and cut it straight off both sides and then find the center job in half.

Do that - next one, take the cut potatoes just wrap them up in the aluminum foil. Once you have a nice hot bed of coals, place the potatoes directly on. Come out about every five minutes and give it a flip. After 20 minutes pull the potatoes off, the BBQ adjusts events for barbecues running at 325 degrees. With the potatoes hot off the BBQ let them cool down for at least 10 minutes.

In the meantime, going to take the Johnsonville breakfast sausages and take the meat out of the case in. To do that, just make a slice across the top, case it would just peel off, place the meat in a bowl.

Once the potatoes have cooled down enough to handle them. Take a small knife, just go around the outside and cut a hole even around a quarter to half inch of the potato on the outside, then just take a spoon and carefully dig it out. Stuff you dig out set aside in a bowl for later use. So you can see it's fairly easy just want to go through put the spoon down the sides, remove the excess potato and try not to poke through the bottom. So just take your time get these all prepped and I'll be right back.

Here's a quick peek at the potatoes are hollowed out, hope you can see that and a little trick if you can start to see light through the bottom, you know you're getting close a good time to stop. Season the potatoes we took out with 1 tablespoon of seasoned salt and half a tablespoon of black pepper. Give that a good mix and just let us.

Now take the holiday potato and the Johnsonville breakfast sausages and just start building a wall on the inside. It’s probably not going to be the best for recipe with my hands in here but I'm get her done. So just go along and place it on the side of the potato, just gently pressing it down to the bottom all the sides. All the potatoes are filled with sausage with a nice hole left in the middle. Crack your egg and a small dish just in case it's bad and then just simply pour it in.

Get the rest of these done, take the rest of the Johnsonville breakfast sausage, just flatten it out and just make a lid, pressing down, some egg might come out. It’s not a big deal. Just try not to break the yolk.

Now time for the bacon, three strips for each one, simply start at the bottom, wrap it all the way around looping over it. Just continue going around the same piece. Stick it on their bank, next one work your way up a little bit. Go around the potato sausage and there's an egg in there and the last one going to get it up around the sausage here.

So once this cooks will have a nice little pocket here. You shouldn't need to use toothpicks, you can if you want to. So get the last one done.

We’ll go get these out on the BBQ. BBQ is preheated to 325 degrees, going to add a few chunks of apple wood for a little bit of smoke and push that lineup after. Then take the breakfast bombs, just place them on the void side of the cooker. Get the lid shut them cook. It’s that easy.

For the part of the potatoes that were taken out earlier. Simply spread them out and then split them into for eyeball it and then just roll it into a ball. Take a sheet of aluminum foil, give a quick spray with some pan cooking spray. Then just take the potatoes press them down while keeping them around almost like you're making a burger. All done now we've got four nice potato patties, take your cooking spray, just spray the top.

After half an hour the breakfast bombs are looking great, to get these on, place them on a cutting board just slide them on over the direct heat and keep a close eye on them.

These still need a bit more time get the lid on but everything cook.

Feel free to use any type of sauce that you like to taste sticking with the breakfast theme got some good old maple syrup and I'm going to kick it up with Uncle Nathan's ghost pepper sauce.

Now this sauce does have a little bit of heat it's also got pineapples, onions, garlic just loaded with flavor. So I have half a cup of maple syrup to that I’m going to add two tablespoons of Uncle Nathan’s hot sauce sweet with a little bit of heat, give it a little bit of a kick, so just give that a good mix.

After 45 minutes, everything's looking good. Hash browns are done. Ready to come off. Can see we broke a couple eggs but everything's good, sausages up to temperature. Now just give it a coat of the hot sauce, the maple syrup and then I'll top it with some of that mozzarella cheese.

Take the shredded cheese just make like a little patty, set it right on top. Go through get the rest is done.

Hot off the BBQ check these out. Let's cut into one, see how they look.
If this recipe looks good be sure to share with your family and friends on social media and leave a comment.

Now let's slice it right down the middle. To get the breakfast bomb plated, I place it on top of one of the hash browns. Now let's slice it right down the middle. Take a peek how it looks, check that out. Got that nice potato Johnsonville breakfast sausage and egg bacon on the outside with that sweet spicy glaze and a little bit of mozzarella cheese, going to top it with a little bit more of that maple syrup and give it a taste.

Breakfast bombs are done and it's time to eat. I hope everyone gives this recipe a try.

This sounds like a great idea to cook breakfast on the grill..Especially with the warmer weather.

What a creative way to serve breakfast! I could see this recipe being really fun for camping, but we are vegetarians, so we would be making them without the meat.

Well, I learnt a lot already and I haven’t even made it yet! It had never dawned on me to cook potatoes right in the coals in the Webber! Thanks for sharing!
