Some of The Tastiest Food to Cook on Your Backyard Griddle
What are some of the best foods to cook on an outdoor griddle? What excels griddle-cooking, and what should be avoided?
Some foods, such as pancakes, can only be cooked on a griddle as opposed to the usual backyard grill. Others cook better on a griddle than any other cooking method.
The even heat distribution of a griddle makes it the perfect choice for cooking many foods. However, there are some that should not be cooked on a griddle or are hard to cook correctly.
Here are some of the favorite dishes for our backyard griddle cookouts:
A griddle is a great way to make pancakes for a crowd. The large surface area means you can make plenty of pancakes at once, and the even heat cooks them perfectly. If you want to make pancakes that are extra special, try using cake mix. Top them with confetti and sprinkles for a fun and festive touch.
Chicken is delicious and can be cooked in many different ways using a griddle. A griddle is an excellent choice for cooking breasts, strips, and small chicken bits to be mixed into salads and rice bowls.
To maximize the flavor of the chicken, marinate it in a sauce or rub it before grilling. This will infuse the chicken with extra flavor, and it will still be moist on the inside when the outside is crispy and brown. Be sure to cook the chicken all the way through, as it can be more dangerous to eat undercooked chicken than undercooked beef.
A perfect steak is the centerpiece of many backyard griddle meals, and a griddle can cook it perfectly. A good steak requires high heat, and a griddle provides that heat. Griddle the steak, then move the meat to a lower heat area to rest and finish cooking.
The great part about griddle cooking is the even heat that is applied to the meat. This means quick, even browning and searing. Sear one side of the meat, then flip and sear the other.
4. Fried Rice
Fried rice is one of the classic griddle foods. It is a great side or main dish to accompany any griddle meal. Cook up some white rice, fry up some eggs, and throw in some veggies, and you have a filling, healthy dinner that is easy to prepare in a large quantity.
5. Grilled Cheese
Have you ever tried a grilled cheese sandwich on a griddle? It is delicious! The griddle provides the perfect even heat to create a crispy, brown outside while staying ooey-gooey inside. Trying a grilled cheese sandwich with different breads (white bread, whole wheat bread, sourdough bread, rye bread, etc.) is a fun way to experiment and discover your favorite.
