3 Amazing Recipes for Your Griddle Grill and the Tools You Need to Perfect Them

This post is brought to you by Yukon Glory, which provided advertising support.

Griddles have an important place amongst grills—imagine fighting against shrimp or fish falling through the grate without a griddle! Or try flipping thinly sliced vegetables on a traditional grill grate to achieve the sought-after char. Cheese melting also necessitates a griddle grill (or at the very least, a cast iron pan).

To meet this demand, easy-to-use propane griddle grills have proliferated. Blackstone Griddle Grills are one of the most popular models, and are available at major retailers across the country and online including Home Depot, Lowe’s, Amazon, Walmart and Bed Bath & Beyond.

To make the most of your Blackstone, we’ve compiled 3 recipes from our friends at Yukon Glory, who specialize in tools for your griddle grill.

3 Amazing Recipes for Your Griddle Grill and the Tools You Need to Perfect Them

1. Homemade Philly Cheesesteak

Yukon Glory - Philly Cheesesteak

Few sandwiches can compare to the cheesy, savory genius of the Philadelphia Cheesesteak. This recipe’s simple preparation makes it an easily attainable weeknight meal.

Cheese Melting DomeTOOL TIP: Use a cheese melting dome in Step 5 to achieve the perfectly melty cheese and crisp vegetables with minimum effort. The dome even comes with a built in thermometer for precision cooking.

2. Jalapeno, Onion, Bacon Dog

Bacon-wrapped hotdogs can drip fat and cause flareups on a traditional grill grate. Using your griddle grill for this recipe will save you that headache!

TOOL TIP: Toast the hot dogs buns on a warming rack hovering above your griddle to add a crisp, tasty finish to the meal. Designed exclusively for the 36″ Blackstone griddle, this warming rack snaps on and off with ease.

3. Fried Egg Avocado Cheeseburger

Yukon Glory - Fried Egg Avocado Cheeseburger

By now you know that Steven Raichlen lives by this tenet: “Keep it hot, keep it clean, keep it lubricated.” Live this motto when grilling the delectable Fried Egg Avocado Cheeseburger with over-easy eggs that will be ruined if they stick to the grilling surface.

TOOL TIP: Nothing is worse than running back into the house for the forgotten squeeze bottles of olive oil to use on the eggs! For easy access, keep your oil, sauces (and yes, even your beer!) in a Grill Caddy or Squeeze Bottle Holder attached to your griddle. Hang your spatula from the grill caddy for even easier grilling.
