I've owned a griddle for over a year and the only thing I've used it for is to make pancakes. I'm positive there are many other uses/other foods to make on my griddle...ideas anyone? What cooks best on a griddle? How is your griddle most useful to you?

I use my griddle for pancakes, cheesesteak sandwiches, breakfast sausages, slices potatoes, eggs...and list can go on and on :) I live in a studio apartment and only have a griddle at my disposal at the moment..so I make it work for just about any and everything.

A friend of mine lives in a studio apartment as well, and only has a rice cooker and microwave to cook with. It definitely makes you become creative when cooking with only a few options. Thank you for all your suggestions, much appreciated. (Also reminded me to get a griddle for my friend :-)

I use my griddle pan for cooking pancakes, various types of vegetable cutlets, patties etc. Just try various combinations of vegetables and spices, bind them together with boiled potatoes and eggs and you can cook up a variety of healthy options that are tasty too!

I use my griddle almost very day althogh I don`t make pancakes that often. But it is there where I make from scrambled eggs to omelettes, tortillas and fritattas. And as I live alone, many times I stir fry veggies there as I find absurd to use a wok for such a smaa amount of food.

I think what you must do is let your healthy mind do the thinking for after all, cooking is the product of curiosity. If I will explain to you now the uses of griddle it will take us time but with your interest in cooking and the will learn more is much better than any teaching.

That is good insight, thank you for comment. It can never hurt to try new alternatives to typical ways of cooking.
