George Foreman Grill Recipes

Top 10 Recipes for the George Foreman Grill

By

These George Foreman grill recipes are designed for any indoor contact grill (it doesn't have to be a George Foreman brand). The beauty of all of these recipes is that they cook quickly and require very little prep work, making them ideal for busy weeknight cooking. These recipes are also perfect for teaching kids to cook, because you can put the indoor grill on any surface, allowing kids to reach it easily, and they don't have to put their hands near a stove or in the oven (although the grilling surface is hot, so young children will still need help).

Chicken Panini Sandwich Recipe

Paninis are one of my favorite things to make on a George Foreman grill (compare prices). It's so much cheaper than a panini press, yet it cooks just as well. This chicken panini is made with a combination of ingredients that is a delight to the palate: salty bacon, creamy cheese, savory pesto and tender chicken, all enrobed in a crunchy toasted bread crust.

Roast Beef Wrap Sandwiches Recipe

Most wraps are about the filling and the wrapping is an afterthought (because it isn't very tasty). This roast beef wrap is tasty through and through because it is grilled on the George Foreman. The result is a crispy outer crust and a meaty filling with gooey cheese. These wraps can be served hot or cold. To pack in the kids school lunches, just let the wraps cool completely, then put in an ice pack in their lunch boxes.

These dessert recipe doesn't exactly "knock out the fat," but it does cook beautifully on an indoor grill, and it is delicious.
