8 Perfect Indoor Grilling Recipes for Fall

Best Buy for MomsWhen you think Best Buy, you probably don’t think about cooking, right? You probably think gadgets and games, computers,  Geek Squad assistance, stuff like that. But – Best Buy is so much more than just smart tech – they also have super smart solutions you can use in throughout your whole home. As a member of the Best Buy Blogging Board, I get to learn about a lot of the cool new products they’re carrying for fall – but never would have expected a gadget that can feed my family breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Learn how I do it with my totally awesome new kitchen helper – the Griddler, by Cuisinart. {And prepare to have your mind blown – this thing rocks.} See it in action here…

Grilling isn’t just for summer anymore – Indoor Grilling Made Easy with the Griddler

Awesome, right? You can use it as a griddle or grill – or half and half – to cook up a super hearty breakfast for you and the fam in the morning. Then it can be used to make perfect paninis at lunch time – or use it to make quesadillas or grilled cheese. At dinner time, you can make just about anything you can think of – veggies, steaks, chicken, kabobs, pork, steaks… This baby makes it super simple to cook them all. LOVE it. You know what else I love? That I was able to clear out a whole kitchen cupboard now that I have the Griddler – I donated our quesadilla maker, the sandwich maker, our small grill, the old super small panini maker, and the waffle maker {you can buy waffle plates for the Griddler too!} – this gadget does everything that ALL of those things can do, in one super cool looking appliance.

Indoor Grilling Recipes

Eight Indoor Grilling Recipes

Want some mouth-watering inspiration for using the Griddler? It can convert to a contact grill, panini press, full grill, full griddle, half grill/half griddle – and even a waffle maker with the extra attachment plates. That means that you can cook a crazy-huge variety of stuff on it – Check out some of my personal favorite indoor grilling recipes:

  • Bacon-Stuffed Pancakes: This totally amazing idea for stuffing your pancakes with bacon can be cooked using the griddle pans of the Griddler. I’ve made these a few times – and they are definitely a “man-pleasing” breakfast choice, lol.
  • Breakfast Griddle Sandwich: This is sooooo good – great combination of sweet and savory. Again, like many breakfast choices, you’ll make this using the griddle plates.
  • Snickers Grilled Dessert Panini: I was part of a group project to come up with recipes featuring Snickers minis {see my Snickers Football Snackadium recipe} – and I came across this idea that another member of the group came up with. SO on my list of to-makes this week!
  • Vegan Philly Cheese Panini: SUPER great idea for switching up a usually Philly sandwich into a healthier vegetarian version that’s sure to please even most meat-lovers. Can’t wait to try this one too! And the Panini plates on the Griddler make it a snap!
  • Homemade Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Chicken Burgers: This copy cat recipe is seriously delicious. I’d actually never tried the original, and have never had any type of Chili Lime style chicken. But it was love at first bite. For reals.
  • Grilled Corn with Parmesean Butter: This super simple recipe from Rachael Ray is perfect for cooking on the full grill plates – and the perfect side dish for any meal! And, did I tell you how easy clean up is, since the grill plates pop right into the dishwasher? Love that.
  • Grilled Tandoori Chicken: Cook up this amazingly good main course using the grill plates – the drip pan catches any bits of grease, the chicken cooks super quickly since the Griddler cooks both sides at the same time, and you’ve got a totally easy clean up when you’re finished.
  • Red Wine Grilled Steak: See those beautiful grill marks on the steaks? Hard to believe that this was cooked indoors! This is my own recipe – incredibly simple, and is a perfect fit for cooking up quick on the Griddler. I ove that you can get serious steakhouse quality meals cooked on this thing. Rockin’.

You’re getting excited, aren’t you? The Griddler is a busy mom’s best friend – Easy to use, simple to store, cleans up in a snap, and versatile enough to cook up anything you need to please picky eaters, finicky foodies, and starving teens. But – it’s not the only awesome kitchen problem solver that you’ll find at Best Buy – I’m telling you, check out their awesome selection the next time you’re there. They’ve got tons of stuff that I never would have expected, and awesome prices. Just like they’re total pros at choosing the smartest tech to fit your families needs – they’re also pros at choosing cool home, health, and beauty gadgets to fit your needs too {remember the Fitbit weight loss super star?}.
