Annapolis EggFest 2012

Eggfests are alway fun.  Big Green Egg owners, otherwise known as Eggheads, gather to show off their food and recipes with each other and with the general public.  It’s a wonderful opportunity to see the unlimited potential that cooking on a BGE offers.  Good food, spending time with old friends, meeting new friends … and more good food … makes every Eggfest a good time.  When Bay Stoves of Annapolis host an eggfest, they take it to another level.  Don, Lani and crew go out of their way to take care of all the cooks.  They have worked hard to create an intimate atmosphere that we have never seen at other Eggfests and I think it is safe to say this event is permanently marked on our calendar every year.

Another Annapolis Eggfest!

After saying hello to our Egghead friends, we quickly fired up a BGE and started the day with Erin’s tator tot breakfast casserole.  This was something so simple and delicious and showed off Erin’s unique ability to take anything she can find in the refrigerator and make it a delicious meal.  Next we cooked a salmon filet smoked over alder wood.  Just before we pulled it off the egg we toppped it with a habanero pineapple glaze.

Our final cook was one of our favorites, our version of a lamb kofta meatball.  Freshly ground lamb mixed with toasted and ground cumin seed, coriander seed, cardamom, allspice, star anise.  Salt, pepper and turmeric were added along with onion, mint, garlic, ginger, spinach and feta.  We formed these into meatballs and grilled them direct until the outside caramelized.  These were a huge hit and people lingered around our egg in hopes of getting a taste.

Unbeknownst to us, as people wandered around and tasted all of the food, they could vote for their favorite of the day.  We were surprised when Lani informed us we had won people’s choice and provided us with a wonderful gift bag full of prizes donated by local restaurants!

Thanks again to the Bay Stoves crew for hosting such a wonderful Eggfest.  We are looking forward to 2013!
