Hey Im new to the forums, my kitchen is being renovated so instead of going out to eat for every meal I would like to use our grill to cook our food instead. now hot dogs and hamburgers I can do easy but Im not sure how to to breakfast foods like pancakes, crepes and french toast. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd use a cast iron skillet and cook them just like you would on the stove top.
Just might take a little bit longer.

Do you have an extra cast iron skillet around? Thats what I used one time in my old house when the power went out and I had a craving for bacon and eggs. I just heated up my grill like always and put the cast iron skillet on there and treated it just like my stove indoors.

How about breakfast pizza on the grill - to me that's the best flavor pizza can have - cooked outdoors!!

I have a large electric griddle that works well for breakfast. Especially breakfast for many people!

The cast iron skillet is great like mentioned above, I have fried eggs on a grill using the cast iron and scrambled them. I have a sm cast iron I take camping to use on the grill. You can cook just about anything you want with the cast iron.

My dad had/has an absolutely HUGE skillet. It's not cast-iron, but it is made of heavy metal (steel?) & is HUGE. Growing up in the hot/humid summers of Long Island, NY, weekend breakfasts were quite often cooked outdoors in that skillet on the brick barbecue grill. You could easily fit a dozen eggs in that skillet while the sausages cooked on the grill rack itself. Or pancakes. Or French Toast. (Dad built a BIG brick barbecue - lol!)

I've been cooking over campfires since I was 12 ... for breakfast it doesn't take much ... a cast iron griddle is great, or a cast iron skillet, or even an aluminum skillet. The only difference is that you don't have a "knob" to turn to adjust the temperature ... you do that by adjusting the distance between the cooking utensil and the heat source.

Of course - if you are using a gas grill instead of a wood campfire - you do have a knob to regulate the temp!

use heat proof pans

You can use anything that won't melt or burn (handles, etc). Use the flame as you would a gas burner. You can make anything outside that you'd make inside.
