5 Ways to Use Your Outdoor Gas Griddle

Whether you just added an outdoor gas griddle to your outdoor kitchen or you are considering if it’s right for you, you’re in for a treat. An outdoor gas griddle is one of the most versatile outdoor kitchen appliances and truly allows you to get your creative juices flowing. Need some tips to get started? We have five different ways to use your outdoor gas griddle to get more unique experiences in the backyard with family and friends, plus some of the top outdoor gas griddles. These are simple, delicious, and will be a crowd-pleaser all the time!

1. Breakfast for Dinner

When you find yourself in a recipe rut or just don’t feel like preparing a big meal, where do you turn? A nice plate of pancakes and bacon is all you need. Like an indoor electric griddle, your outdoor bbq griddle can whip up some fantastic breakfast staples. If your outdoor griddle is large enough, you can grill the whole meal at once, pancakes, eggs, sausage, and bacon. Just don’t forget the syrup, and you are set for a delicious breakfast, no matter the time of day.

2. Hibachi for a Crowd

Now’s your chance to show off your hibachi chef skills and toss some shrimp to the crowd. In all seriousness, your outdoor gas griddle is a perfect way to grill smaller food that might not work well on your bbq grill. Chop some vegetables, dice up chicken and steak, add some shrimp, and everyone’s favorite, fried rice. A delicious hibachi meal is a fun and unique way to experience your outdoor kitchen. It gets everyone involved, and the result is a filling and tasty dinner.

3. Gourmet Sandwiches

When we say grill up some sandwiches on your gas griddle, we aren’t talking about your average weekday lunch options. An outdoor gas griddle allows you to get a perfectly grilled sandwich since there’s even heat throughout the griddle. You can get fancy with a grilled cheese by adding unique spreads and ingredients or making an extra meaty sandwich with roast beef or steak. Pair it with a bagged salad or chips, and you have yourself an easy meal everyone enjoys.

4. Famous Smash Burgers

You can get one of the famous smash burgers at a fast-food restaurant, but why not make it in the comfort of your backyard?! Smash burgers require a flat top surface since the patties are smashed very thin while cooking. While smash burgers are unique takes on hamburgers already, there are many variations with toppings, seasonings, and sauces to make it even more custom to your liking. You’ll perfect your smashing technique in no time and whip up everyone’s favorite burger.

5. Fajita Fiesta

If you love the sizzle of fresh fajitas, then your outdoor gas griddle is your perfect cooking companion. Since the peppers, onions, and sliced meat can easily fall through the grates on a gas grill, it’s the ideal meal for the outdoor gas griddle. All of that chopping will be worth it when you hear that sizzle and bite into your spicy creation. Fajitas is another meal that can be made all at once on your gas griddle, depending on its size. Your taco night just got an upgrade!
