Out of the graveyard – the George Foreman!!!!

Look what was unearthed tonight? The ridiculously large and PAIN to clean George Foreman Grill! I know you have one too. Who doesn’t? This isn’t my first. I originally owned, during my bachlorette days the more stan dard size. But the moment I was let loose with the bridal registry gun in hand I was certain to include the “FAMILY” size George Foreman Grill. Yes, we did use it, maybe a dozen times during the 1st 6 months or so. The annoyance of cleaning it is what tucked it away to gather dust for years now. Well, with the desire for grilled chicken and severe thunderstorm warning in effect, I grabbed the tot-lock to open that cabinet that holds the George Foreman!

Well, 8 minutes on medium produced absolutely scrumptious, moist grilled chicken! Cleaning it wasn’t too bad. Maybe now in Smart Mama-hood, you quickly learn that a few more minutes of cleaning for the fam is well worth it!
I think I may take it out again to make Rachael Ray’s Grilled Chicken and Eggplant Parm Stacks that she had on her show on Wednesday.
Would love to learn how other Smart Mamas use their George Foreman!

    Meg and I were just talking about this and what a pain it is to clean. I think only a man would design plates that don't come out that you can put in the dishwasher or clean separately. Although, I think on the new ones the plates come out.
    I love mine, but don't use it much for that reason alone.

    I loved my George Foreman grill but I got divorced and left it at the former marital residence. I think I need to go buy another after reading this. Cleaning it was a pain and I never really cleaned it that well but I figured it got hot enough.

    My George Foreman is the perfect panini press. We make everything from grilled cheese to fancier sandwiches. I use my Misto filled with olive oil to give the bread a quick spray before grilling – much healthier than the pats of butter I used to use.
