What is the Best Oil to Use with a Flat Top Griddle?
Vegetable and canola oil are the best for flat-top grilling because you’ll need a high smoke point. Oil is also key in the overall taste of your final product. The right oil can depend on what you’re cooking, but either way you want to make sure you use enough oil to prevent your food from sticking to the griddle.
Healthy Griddle Recipes
Dinner ready in less than 20 minutes! Is there anything better? Yes, grilled salmon! All you have to do is to brush the griddle with oil, and season the fish with salt and pepper. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side. Then add a dash of lemon juice or herbs for a delicious and healthy meal!
Are you ready to take your broccoli to the next level? Then look no further than this recipe. Simply boil, chill and place on the griddle with some olive oil and you will have succulent broccoli with a powerful taste in less than 10 minutes.
Cooking asparagus on the griddle provides a great texture with a bit of a bite! All you have to do is cook the spears for about 3-4 minutes on each side, top it with some sea salt and a squeeze of lemon. Tip: use slim asparagus for this recipe.
Similar to pancakes, these parmesan crusted smashed potatoes are a must-have! Gently smash the boiled potatoes on the griddle with a masher, brush with garlic butter and you are well on your way to smashed potatoes that are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside!
Camp Griddle Recipes
If you’re a fan of grilled cheese, then you will want to try this recipe. For the ultimate grilled cheese experience, you want to have bread that will toast on the outside while remaining moist on the inside. For the cheese, it’s truly up to you, but the tip here is to bring your cheese to room temperature first so that it melts quicker on the griddle.
Mouthwatering and messy, two words that perfectly describe this Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich. Use thinly sliced rib-eyed steak, sauteed onions and the cheese whiz for an ooey-gooey goodness you will want to experience over and over again!
A staple in many households, pancakes are a go-to breakfast option that is forever a favorite. To cook from scratch, just combine flour, eggs, milk, sugar and butter. If you’re looking for a bit of a thicker and fluffier pancake simply substitute buttermilk for the milk. The tip here is to put enough oil on the griddle so that the pancakes don’t stick.
Camping favorites brought right to your kitchen! Grab the graham crackers, chocolate bars, marshmallows and the kids will be on their way to camping fun without the mess. Simply place the cracker on the griddle, place the chocolate and marshmallow on top, wait for that ooey-gooey melted goodness and then top it off with the other graham cracker.

Is a Griddle Healthier than a Grill?
I love both griddle and grill. To say that one is better than the other really depends on what food you’re cooking. The griddle can be seen as the healthier option as it requires less grease or oil, whereas a grill has the smoke going into your food. However, either option is healthy so long as you are cautious about the amount of oil you’re using and the way you cook your meat over an open flame.
