Do You George?

In the Weight Watchers days, I used my George Foreman Grill almost every day.

But then somehow when I moved from California up to Oregon five years ago, my George Foreman grill was broke by the movers.

Who knows what happened.

But I never got another George.

Until yesterday.

Georges were on sale at my local Freddy's store.

So now I have a George again.

But I need your help with recipes and ideas.

What do you make on your George?
Speaking of elderly boxers, did you know that Muhammad Ali's daughter, Khaliah, has a Lap-Band too?

  1. love doing turkey bacon on george :D And sandwiches always taste better when grilled and pressed. One of our favorites and probably not diet friends is french bread (with some of the bread 'dug out' so the 'fixings' have a place to go and don't slide out when you press down on the grill) -- ham, havarti cheese, red onion and some cranberry sauce.

  2. ditto the turkey bacon....and I like boneless chicken thighs on it. and I grill pineapple on it

  3. I haven't used my George in so long... might dust him off this week!

  4. LOVE my George!!! I agree with tz... Sandwiches are AWESOME, makes it like a panini! Also I do chicken breasts. I buy the big bag of frozen chicken breasts from Sams Club and I just rinse them to get the ice chips off. Use a baster brush and brush just a little olive oil on them and season them with whatever you want (I use bbq seasoning or mccormicks montreal chicken..or at KC's farmers market the seasonings guy has this garlic herb seasoning that rocks my socks!) but that sucker on there frozen and it cooks it PERFECTLY!! OH also, veggies! I cook zucchini, squash, asparagas etc.... on there! :)

  5. We grill chicken on ours all the time. Great video...thanks for posting!

  6. Thanks for posting the video, it was encouraging. :-)

  7. I actually read her book right before I was banded. I don't know that I would recommend it as a helpful book that answers questions for banders-to-be, but it was interesting to read her story.
