My fiancé and I are trying to cut down on eating out, so another appliance we added to the kitchen is this non-stick griddle. I ordered this griddle last night on sale from Macy’s via eBates and also received 6% cash back. The griddle was ready to pick up the next morning (today). Afterwards picking the griddle at the mall, we went grocery shopping for all the ingredients at Whole Foods. Even though we are cutting down on eating out, it is not necessarily cheap making food either as we need to purchase all the ingredients, but that is fine because it is healthier and we know what we are using and what goes in our food. By the time we got home, it was already past noon, and we wanted pancakes badly, so we prepare our brunch! While I prepped the pancake batter, my fiancé cleaned the griddle. This griddle is perfect for making breakfast like: pancakes, eggs and bacon. There are a lot of other recipes you can find on Pinterest and on the Internet as well, not just for breakfast. Ideally, I wanted a waffle maker because I absolutely love waffles and the batter for pancakes and waffles are the same, but I will wait for a better deal on a waffle maker. With this griddle, it is more universal and you can cook a lot more than compared to a waffle maker.
What we cooked on our new griddle?
- Organic Buttermilk Pancakes – next time we’ll make the pancakes thinner and ideally we will cook about 8 to 10 pancakes first then add on the turkey bacon and eggs
- Organic Large Brown Eggs
- Peppered Turkey Bacon
For our pancakes, we had organic maple syrup and side of fresh berries and a slice of peppered turkey bacon. Breakfast was such a treat, we will have this 2 or 3 times a week only and alternate with other breakfast meals.
