Peameal Bacon Brunch Bunwiches

Author: Canadian Living

If you have a side burner on the barbecue, you can cook your eggs at the same time as grilling the bacon and toasting the buns. Honey mustard or a Dijon mayonnaise combo is a delicious addition to the toasted bun.

  • Portion size 8 servings
  • Credits : Get Grilling: Summer 2007


  • 1 piece peameal bacon (about 2 lb/1 kg)
  • 8 kaiser rolls halved
  • 8 slices old Cheddar cheese
Scrambled Eggs:
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Heat 1 burner of 2-burner barbecue or 2 outside burners of 3-burner barbecue to medium. Place bacon on greased grill over unlit burner; close lid and grill, adjusting heat if necessary to maintain temperature, until meat thermometer inserted in centre registers 130°F (55°C), about 70 minutes.

Transfer bacon to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 10 minutes. Slice thinly.

Scrambled Eggs: Meanwhile, in large bowl, whisk together eggs, green onions, salt and pepper. In large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add egg mixture; cook until beginning to set. Draw spatula across bottom of pan to form large soft curds; cook, scraping bottom with spatula, until mounding and moist but no liquid remains, about 4 minutes.

Toast rolls, cut side down, on grill over medium heat, about 2 minutes. Transfer to rimmed baking sheet.

Divide bacon and eggs among bottom halves of rolls; top with cheese and roll tops. Place baking sheet on grill; close lid and heat until cheese melts, about 10 minutes.
