PrestoElectricGriddleThis is part two of a five part series on different ways I use my electric griddle. This series is a part of my month long “5 Days With My Appliances” series..

An electric griddle is all about real estate. That real estate comes in a large cooking surface. Perfect for something like bacon. Electric Griddle Bacon I fit an entire 12 oz package of center cut bacon on my electric griddle the other day. It was so easy to cook all that bacon and it took no time at all. I am use to having to cook my bacon in stages, 4-5 strips at a time. Since an electric griddle is flat, flipping the bacon is no trouble at all. When it comes to taking care of bacon fat, my griddle has a hole in it, for the fat to drain through and into a waiting pan. I have seen other models that tilt feature, to easily allow you to drain all the grease away.

So if you have the perfect tool to cook your bacon, next you need to know what bacon to buy. Check out my earlier post on shopping for bacon, which includes why I like center cut bacon.
