Griddles have been in operation, mainly in the outdoor catering industry for many years now and it’s likely that you’ve all tucked into a hearty bacon and sausage bap at some point in your lives. But there’s more to the humble griddle than the clichés and we’re going to talk about all the other essentials that surround this wonderful appliance that allows us to cook such delicious food!
Yes, griddles are popular for breakfast prep, burger stalls and other similar operations, so with this in mind we thought we’d look at some other variations that aren’t as commonly used by users of the griddle.
Griddles can be used to cook almost every kind of meat, from succulent chicken fillets, to hearty steaks, and various chops, such as pork. There’s also the opportunity to cook up fleshier fish, including shark and tuna steaks, squid, king prawns and firmer fish, like salmon for example.
Did you know that you can also use griddles for making more novel foods such as pancakes? This might be a niche option to add to your menu if you are planning on selling at events and shows as they are cheap and easy to make, so you can sell them with little waiting time.
What options are there?
Griddles are available in gas or electricity options. The beauty of a griddle is that the area remains very warm while it’s on, so any cooked food can be held on without it losing heat.
The griddle surface can come in a range of forms, including carbon steel, cast iron, stainless and chrome-coated griddles. All have pros and cons, so it is down to the individual to decide what surface suits them best.
