Grilled Easter Brunch: Maple Glazed Ham & Grilled Vegetable Frittata Recipe

in News


For Maple Glazed Ham:

  • 1 pre-cooked ham (approximately 5-7 pounds)
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves

    For Grilled Vegetable Frittata: 

    • 8 large eggs
    • 1/4 cup milk or cream
    • 1 cup diced bell peppers (assorted colors)
    • 1 cup diced zucchini
    • 1 cup diced red onion
    • 1 cup diced mushrooms
    • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or your choice)
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • Olive oil for grilling


      Prepare the Grill: 

      • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, around 375-400°F (190-200°C). If you're using a charcoal grill, prepare it for indirect grilling.

      Prepare the Ham:

      • In a small saucepan, combine maple syrup, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, and ground cloves. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
      • Place the pre-cooked ham on the grill, flat side down. Brush the maple glaze generously over the ham, coating all sides.
      • Close the grill lid and let the ham cook for about 15-20 minutes, basting with the glaze every 5 minutes, until the ham is heated through and the glaze caramelizes slightly. Remove from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.

        Prepare the Grilled Vegetable Frittata: 

        • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk or cream, salt, and pepper until well combined.
        • Heat a grill-safe skillet or cast-iron pan on the grill over medium heat. Drizzle some olive oil onto the skillet.
        • Add diced bell peppers, zucchini, red onion, and mushrooms to the skillet. Grill the vegetables, stirring occasionally, until they are tender and slightly charred, about 5-7 minutes.
        • Pour the whisked egg mixture over the grilled vegetables in the skillet. Sprinkle shredded cheese evenly over the top.
        • Close the grill lid and cook the frittata for about 10-12 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
        • Once cooked, remove the skillet from the grill and let the frittata cool slightly before slicing.


          • Arrange slices of maple-glazed ham and wedges of grilled vegetable frittata on a platter.
          • Serve hot and enjoy your delicious Easter brunch cooked on the BBQ!
