Bacon is one of the easiest foods to cook on a griddle. All you do is turn the heat to high, lay out the bacon with tongs, cook about five minutes before flipping it and cooking it another five minutes, a little more if you want it to be extra crispy. However, many variations exist for bacon on the griddle, alone and with other kinds of food.

Some people like to add some spices to their bacon to give it an extra kick. A mixture of garlic powder, garlic salt, and cayenne pepper usually does nicely in this case.

Bacon also does well when you put it on the griddle with other foods. If you’re cooking eggs, scrambled or over easy, for breakfast or hamburgers for lunch or dinner, the bacon grease created by the cooking process adds a little bit of flavor, especially if you move the food around with tongs to pick it up.

Some cooks like to wrap bacon around more challenging food, such as steak or boneless breasts of chicken. You wrap the bacon around the steak or chicken and secure it with a toothpick or two. Be careful when you flip so that the bacon wrap doesn’t fall off.

Whether you are cooking alone or with something else, once it’s done you place it on a plate on top of a layer of paper towels to absorb the excess grease. Use a spatula to scrap the excess grease on the griddle into the oil reservoir.
