Does anyone have some good recipes for the grill machine (such as a George Foreman grill)? I have one of those grills and wanted to start using it again but would like some new recipe ideas. Thanks!

I don't have any specific recipes but you can use any of your favorite grill recipes in the George Foreman. It is great for making hamburgers, chicken, grilled veggies, even panini type sandwiches. I liked to use it to cook bacon because the grease just runs off.
I eventually sold mine at a garage sale because I found it was difficult to clean and I wanted to get something that was more versatile, with removable or changable plates.
It looks like there were some suggestions archived on this page, so I would scroll down and read through the archives below. Good luck!

I just received the smaller George Foreman contact roaster from a yard sale. It has never been used, but does include instructions. I would like some ideas/advice even some recipes from the thrifty community. So please hook me up.

You don't really need a recipe book. Use it to grill any kind of meat that you can fit on there. I cook hamburgers, steaks, chicken, pork chops. When I boil bratwurst I use it to brown them after they are already cooked. It also works if you have marinated your meat and want to grill it. (10/19/2006)

I try to stay away from so many fried foods, and the grill helps with that. One of my favorite things to put on my grill is Fish.I have tried different kinds of unbreaded fish fillets...Catfish, fresh salmon, flounder...But, my favorite because it is so easy and quick is Tilapia. It comes frozen in the store, and each fillet is frozen in its own plastic pouch. Just take as many as you need from the package. Leave them in the individual wrappers and place them in a bowl of warm water until thawed. This only takes about 5 minutes. Remove them from the packages and blot them dry with a paper towel. Place them on the preheated grill, drizzle a little olive oil over them, and sprinkle with salt, lemon pepper and dillweed to suit your taste. Grill for 5-7 minutes.They are done when they will flake with a fork. Add a microwave baked potato and a salad for a complete and delicious meal in about 30 minutes.

Any boneless meats are great grilled in the electric grills. Bones in the meat keeps the grill from closing down really well and doesn't grill well due to lack of contact. Found this out the hard way with a package of chicken legs.
I also love grilled cheese sandwiches in my grill. It would do panini too if they aren't too full of fillings. (10/20/2006)
I did a Metacrawler search and found these 3 sites. There were other sites but these seemed to have the best selection;

Depending on your machine's wattage, you may have to cook longer than indicated in recipes. Don't be surprised if it takes double the time if you have a low wattage machine. Although I don't know what is considered low, take a look at the wattage from other machines in the store, from less expensive to more expensive, to determine this fact. (10/20/2006)
I love doing bacon on it. (10/20/2006)
