Sharing is caring!

Most people think that the George Foreman Grill is just for toasted sandwiches!

But we have done waffles, t-bone steak and even choc chip cookies in ours!!

From cookies to PANCAKES, you can cook almost anything on The George.

We all hate having dozens of appliances taking up space on the bench, so we love this handy dandy grill so much!

Below are some of the best things to cook on a George Foreman Grill.

If you love desserts, cookies are something you can grill using the George Foreman Grill.

Before placing the dough balls on the grill, ensure you place an aluminum foil or use the baking plate.

It takes around 10 to 12 minutes to grill the cookies.

2. Cheesy Quesadillas

Mexican food lovers will find the George Foreman Grill to be a great option for making quesadillas.

You can preheat the grill and cover one side of the tortilla with butter. On the other side, you can use cheese slices or grated cheese.

It will take around four minutes to cook the quesadillas properly.

Hot Tip: You don’t want to leave the cheese on the grill to harden. So make sure you clean your George Foreman as soon as it has cooled, otherwise, the cheese will be REALLY hard to remove!

We did a tenderloin in it and it came out beautiful!

4. Eggs in No Time

You can use the grill as a griddle for frying eggs.

Before you fry the eggs, ensure that the grill is preheated and has a nonstick coating.

This will prevent the eggs from sticking to the griddle so you can remove them properly.

Hot Tip: Grilling in a George Foreman is different from your regular gas grill. Get the George Foreman cook times.

Its outlines the timings for all different types of food from steak to chicken and even waffles.

5. Perfectly Crispy Bacon

When cooking bacon, you will not require any cooking spray.

Ensure you use thicker cuts for your bacon since thinner ones will stick to your grill. Place each of the strips evenly with a distance between them.

The slices of bacon will take around five to eight minutes, depending on whether you want it tender or crisp. You can keep checking on them to see if they are cooked properly.

6. Healthy But Delicious Friess

The George Foreman Grill can EVEN MAKE low-fat fries!

Ensure that you cut the potatoes into thin rounds. Cover the potato chips with pepper, olive oil, and salt.

Preheat the grill and then place the chips separately from each other.

You will get your low-fat fries within 20 to 22 minutes.
