Cooking Eggs on a Griddle

Griddles are often used to cook eggs. Here you are looking for advice on cooking eggs on a griddle. It’s a staple of breakfast worldwide and is packed with nutritious nutrients like protein, calcium, and vitamins. The fact that they are so inexpensive is in addition to the fact that they are very satiating and delicious!

Cooking eggs on the griddle is the best way to prepare them. Best electric griddles make cooking eggs very convenient because you can cook many eggs at once. You can only cook one egg at a time in a frying pan. There are 17 inches of griddle that can cook 12 eggs, and 36 inches of griddle can cook 48 eggs!

Cooking in batches is no longer necessary. The entire batch needs to be cooked at once. Eggs cook more quickly at a lower temperature than many other foods, and griddles allow you to control their cooking temperature, making them easy to cook without overcooking. On a griddle, you can cook your eggs simultaneously and at different temperatures on one side while cooking any accompanying breakfast food on the other.

These are some great methods for cooking eggs on your griddle, as well as some tools for cooking eggs. You can learn how to cook eggs using a Blackstone griddle or any flat-top grill in Griddle Sizzle’s full guide.

Various Egg Styles

How to Cook Eggs Scrambled

Hard/Medium/Easy Over

In the process of cooking the eggs, the eggs must also be flipped over so they can cook on the other side. Your griddle should be heated to 275 degrees and you should put your favorite oil down on the gas cooktop.

Griddles can be used to crack eggs directly onto them. To avoid stray egg shell pieces on the griddle, crack the egg into a separate bowl before adding it to the griddle. The egg should be cooked for about 3-4 minutes on low heat.

The egg white should be fully set before you flip it over with your best spatula, but make sure you do it carefully before the yolk bursts. If you prefer over-easy, cook for a few more minutes. Cook about 2 minutes longer over medium. Continue cooking about 3 minutes more over hard. Use your spatula to remove the egg from the pan, then serve.

Sun-Side Up

How to Cook Eggs Ring

Put 275 degrees on the griddle and your oil of choice on the cooktop. The egg can be cracked directly onto the griddle. Eggshell pieces can be cracked into a separate bowl before being added to the griddle if you’re concerned. 

Cook the egg at low heat for about 5 minutes. Remove the egg white with a spatula once it has fully set so as not to break the yolk. Next, serve the egg white and enjoy!

Scrambled

Making scrambled eggs on a griddle is easy and quick. The eggs should be cracked into a bowl and scrambled with a whisk or fork. In addition to milk, you can sprinkle shredded cheese on top if desired. At this point, I would avoid salting the eggs as it will break them down. Place your griddle over medium heat and add the oil of your choice. 

After you have poured the eggs onto the griddle, stir the mixture with a spatula. Make sure to move the eggs around as you cook them. Season them as soon as they are almost done or wait until you remove them from the heat to do so. If you like your scrambled eggs runny or dry, remove them from the griddle once they are at the level of doneness you want them.

Scrambled Eggs

How to Cook Eggs Omelets

You can make an egg scramble with or without mix-ins. It is what we call my failed attempts at omelets.  Griddles are a great way to cook this dish since both the eggs and the mix-ins can be cooked simultaneously. The eggs should be cracked and scrambled with a fork or whisk in a bowl.

You may also like this:

The preheated griddle should be on low heat, add your cooking oil of choice, and then sauté all of the scrambled ingredients together (ham, peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc…). 

If you like cheese in your eggs, you can add it after they are finished cooking. Once they are finished cooking, simply pour the uncooked scrambled eggs (and cheese) over them and mix together with a spatula until well combined. Remove from the wall oven and serve.

Omelet

How to Cook Eggs Sunny-Side

An omelet is another popular egg dish made on a griddle. There is plenty of room to work on the griddle, and you can cook any meats or vegetables you would like to add to your omelet on it as well.

Prepare the eggs by scrambling them in a bowl and setting them aside. Preheat the griddle to a low temperature. Any of the mix-ins you want to cook now can be done before you cook the eggs. Your oil of choice should be added to the meat and/or vegetables while they are cooking.

After applying a thin layer of oil or butter to the griddle, place your eggs in a circle or rectangle. Cook the eggs for a minute, stirring only when the bottom layer becomes solid and the top layer is still wet.

The omelet can be topped with meat, cheese, or vegetables, but don’t overfill it. Either fold the left side into the middle of the omelet or fold both the left and right sides into the middle. Flip the omelet carefully so that it does not break and the ingredients do not fall out. Continue to cook the omelet until it has been set for a minute or so. It is always possible to purchase a large egg ring to keep things neat when making omelets.

Yummy Mini Frittatas 

The mini frittatas are cooked on a frying pan, rather than a skillet, as frittatas are usually made in a skillet for the egg. Essentially, they are egg bites, except that they are not cooked sous vide. Egg rings that act as a mold for frittatas and a basting dome that aid in the cooking process is necessary to make these.

Mix together 8 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, salt, and pepper to taste in a bowl. Finally, add the desired ingredients (presliced). Among the options are herbs, cheeses, vegetables, and pre-cooked meats. The griddle should be heated to low heat and an oil of your choice should be added. Once the egg mixture has been filled into each egg ring, place the egg rings on top.

The basting dome should be placed on top after 6-10 minutes. Carefully remove the egg rings from the eggs after removing the dome. You may now remove the mini frittatas from the griddle with your spatula and serve them.  Cooking extras of these are also great because you can reheat them later to make healthy and quick meals.

FAQs

How do you fry eggs on a griddle?

Griddling eggs effectively requires having the right tools at your disposal. Below, we have listed the essential tools you will need to prepare eggs on a griddle.

  • Using a bowl makes it easier to mix your eggs together for omelets and frittatas. Invest in a high-quality bowl that will last for many years to come. Some good egg bowl materials include glass and metal. Plastic bowls should be avoided since they can get greasy, stained, and crack over time.
  • An egg ring is also a necessary accessory when cooking eggs on a griddle. This device looks like a ring and keeps eggs perfectly round. Picture an entirely centered yolk and a perfectly round, sunny-side-up? Then you can achieve such a result with this tool. When you crack the egg inside the ring on your griddle, it will turn into an attractive shape.
  • A spatula can make your life easier when cooking eggs, and prevent you from getting frustrated during the process. Flipping eggs will become easy for you as well! You can also scramble your eggs with a spatula.
  • If you’re making a chorizo omelet, you’re probably pouring batter into a bowl. Then your omelets will turn into random shapes as they rush to the sides of your griddle. You can make beautiful, consistent omelets with an omelet dispenser at hand if you want to ensure you use the right amount of batter for each one. Additionally, this tool prevents a mess in the kitchen.

How to Crack Open Eggs?

How to Cook Eggs Crack

Cracking eggs on the side of a mixing bowl or even on a griddle is a common practice. The downside to this is that you may have eggshells in your egg mixture. Your egg must first be gently tapped against a cutting board or some other type of flat surface.

The ideal temperature for cooking eggs on a griddle?

How to Cook Eggs Heat Control

In most cases, beginners make the mistake of using the wrong temperature when griddling eggs. The temperature directly affects how the eggs cook. When cooking eggs, lower heat settings are needed than those for meat. When used at the same temperature as meat, it burns!

You should heat your griddle to a temperature of 300-325 degrees Fahrenheit for perfectly cooked eggs while griddling. You can cook perfectly cooked eggs on a stovetop griddle setting of Medium-low.

Is medium or hard right for my eggs?

There are some people who love an egg over easy. Other people loathe it. When it comes to egg yolks, you have a variety of options. Over medium will result in a harder outside but still liquid middle, which you may prefer. Overhard will produce a yolk as firm as one from a hard-boiled egg if you can’t stand the runny yolk.

Do scrambled eggs have to be creamy?

Make scrambled eggs creamier by adding milk to them. Your eggs have been made creamy and silky by adding milk for a long time. You can also add creaminess to scrambled eggs by using butter instead of regular cooking oil.

If you want scrambled eggs to be creamy, set your griddle to low heat. If you are cooking eggs, you could gently swirl them instead of stirring them. Making your scrambled eggs easier has a direct impact on their consistency.

It isn’t expensive. They’re a cheaper source of protein than meat or fish, coming in at under $2 a dozen. They contain a lot of vitamins.
