With the move and things not quite finished around here I’ve been slow to get the outside grill out. I thought I was going to get it out one day but realized that we needed LP as the tank for empty. I was in too big of hurry to have supper ready that I just threw the brats on the griddle and forgot about the grill.
Well let me tell you..I am glad that happened. I think the brats on the griddle were better than if they had been prepared on the grill.
This has now become out standard way to fix them.
These brats were uncooked. I now boil them sometime during the day to get them cooked through. Then when Hubby comes home I put the on the griddle to brown them. They are wonderful this was and honestly, I don’t think we’ll be getting the grill out any time soon. We’ve gotten so that all of our burgers are done on the griddle too.
So there it is folks…we have more or less given up on the grill and have become griddle people. Steaks, shrimp…anything we used to do on the grill has now moved to the griddle. I wish I had known that when we lived on the farm. I had to go though two doors, through the entry way and down steps to get to the grill. It’s silly that now that my grill can be right outside the kitchen door I now don’t need that convenience because the griddle has taken over all the jobs of the grill.
I do want to note that this is no ordinary griddle. This one is Bethany Housewares 730 Heritage Grill. We truly use it for everything. We bought one for Kalissa for Christmas a couple years ago. She loves hers so much that she keeps hers out on the counter and never puts it away. I bought mine for $10 at a thrift store several years ago. I was telling Hubby just last night that if something should happen to mine, I’ll be ordering a new one immediately. We use it for fried potatoes, Philly Steak Sandwiches, Breakfast Sandwiches, Pancakes…grill cheese…stir fry…everything.
I can honestly say, I don’t think we’ll even bother filling the LP tank of the grill this year…we’re now griddle people!!
