Either way, you use it will result in nicely browned and flavorful meat. It also provides a perfect surface to lightly toast some tortillas.
Bacon and Eggs
The perfect breakfast, bacon, and eggs are staples of griddle cooking for a reason. Steam grilled bacon cooks through evenly and crisps up much quicker and easier than in a traditional skillet. Not only that, the large cooking surface of a griddle allows you to make tons of strips at once. Plus, as the fat renders out, you can cook your eggs right on top of it at the same time. The high temperatures the steam griddle can reach ensure that the whites will be cooked through long before the yolks, too.
