Many people enjoy cooking outside on the grill during the warmer weather months. While most people cook lunch and dinner foods, such as hamburgers, chicken and steak, breakfast foods can also be cooked on the grill. Fried eggs on the grill are a simple meal to fix, whether you're at home or camping. Fried eggs cooked on the grill can be served alone or made into a breakfast sandwich with a tortilla or bread.
Heat the grill to medium-level heat. Adjust a gas grill accordingly and use about 10 charcoal briquettes for a regular grill. Spread ashy charcoal briquettes around in a single layer to make the heat source more even.
Tear off a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil about 2 feet long. Fold the aluminum foil in half and spray the top side with no-stick cooking spray to keep the egg from sticking.
Lay the aluminum foil on the grill top with the greased side facing up. Crack the egg and break it over the center of the aluminum foil.
Watch the egg as it cooks and wait for the top of the egg to start turning opaque. For a soft or over-easy egg, flip the egg with a spatula as soon as the egg turns opaque. For over-medium or well-done egg, wait until the egg appears fully solidified on the top before turning it over with the spatula.
Grill the second side of the egg for about a minute. Remove the foil and egg from the grill and allow the egg to cool for a minute before serving.
Grill potato wedges or toast to go along with grilled fried eggs.
Supervise children and pets when a grill is hot and in use.
