From fish to delicious seared steaks, an electric grill can cook many of your favorite ingredients.
Your new George Foreman Grill will offer a more convenient way to cook, with reduced fat and perfect results.
Here are eight suggestions of the best foods to cook on a George Foreman Grill when you want to cook something easy, delicious, and quickly.
Toaster Waffles and Pop-Tarts
When you want a quick breakfast fix or a snack at any hour, toaster waffles and Pop-Tarts are
easy and convenient. Rather than using your standard toaster oven, use your grill instead.
You’ll enjoy the benefits of consistent cooking in just two minutes.
Crisp and delicate, your waffles and Pop-Tarts will come out perfect.
You can even cook from frozen on the George Foreman Grill.
In a busy household, frozen pizzas are the perfect last-minute meal for when you’ve run out of fresh ingredients or time.
Frozen pizzas work great in a George Foreman Grill with a little bit of kitchen ingenuity.
Place the pizza on the grill surface, and then add a standard dining fork just in between the hinge at the back of the grill.
The fork will keep the grill slightly ajar so that the cheese and toppings don’t burn and stick.
Make sure to use a stainless steel fork and let it cool down before removing it for washing.
A frozen pizza will cook in around 12 minutes in a George Foreman Grill.
Everybody loves potato fries, but deep frying your potatoes adds a lot of unnecessary fat and cooking mess.
Try slicing potatoes into thick round chips instead or simply half them if they’re small sized potatoes, then and cook them in your grill.
After washing and slicing the potatoes, toss them with salt, pepper, and olive oil.
You could also add other seasonings like herbs or even try chicken salt (or another flavored salt) instead of standard table salt.
Turn the grill on and when it’s hot, put the tossed potato slices directly on the surface with no overlaps.
Cook them for up to 10 minutes for crisp and golden gourmet chips.
Burgers are a grill favorite, and you can cook them inside at any time of the year or whenever you don’t want to fire up your main grill.
You can use store-bought frozen burgers or homemade.
The George Foreman Grill is perfect for burgers because there’s no need for flipping.
Each bite will be perfectly cooked and excess fat will be removed and channeled away from the grill.
If you like toasted buns, assemble your hamburgers before putting them in the George Foreman Grill for a couple of minutes before serving.
Many home cooks find fish difficult to work with on the grill.
It needs to be wrapped in foil before cooking, adding to the time and complexity of what should be a simple meal.
Try cooking fish in your George Foreman Grill instead.
You can use salmon, tilapia, snapper, or any of your favorite varieties. All you need to do is season your fish first and then put it directly onto the hot grill.
The grill will keep all of the protein together, giving you an attractive fillet or whole fish to serve.
Pork Chops and Loins
Pork chops cooked on a George Foreman Grill taste amazing, and you’ll find that this becomes your go-to cooking method.
You can marinate or rub your pork just like you would for a pan or outdoor grill.
Make sure that the pork is at room temperature before you start cooking.
Because heat comes from both sides, your chops or loins will be finished in around six to ten minutes.
Boneless chicken pieces come out amazing when you use a George Foreman Grill.
Begin by seasoning your thawed chicken at room temperature.
Heat the grill and place your chicken strips or breasts directly onto the plate.
Close the grill and let it work its magic. Chicken breast takes around six minutes, while most sliced cuts will take around the same.
Perfectly Grilled Steaks in Your George Foreman Grill
Here we get to everyone’s favorite grilled food!
If you love steak, you’ll find your George Foreman Grill to be indispensable.
Season or marinate as you normally would. Let the steaks come to room temperature if they’ve been left in the fridge.
Put steaks directly on the grilling surface when it’s hot, and then close your grill. Steaks around 1-½ inches thick will take around three minutes for medium-rare.
Cooking for up to nine minutes will give you medium or well-done cuts.
Experiment with cooking times until you get your steak just as you want it.
The George Foreman Grill will lock in juices and flavor, and you’ll love the results.
