Pictured: French Onion Grilled Cheese
My husband and don’t have the ability to have/use an outdoor grill at our apartment, so our indoor Panini grill has gotten a lot of use! While I know that my indoor grilling is no comparison to “real” grilling, I want to share some of the tips/tricks we have learned for anyone else who is in the same boat as we are!
The first time I made grilled chicken on my indoor grill, I thought I should have it turned up all the way. The result was very burned chicken before the inside was completely cooked!
There are three things that I regularly use my indoor grill for:
1. Grilled cheese
2. BBQ chicken breasts
I love making grilled cheese on an indoor grill rather than on a griddle, but I take two precautions:
- Don’t put the cheese all the way to the edge of the sandwiches (or you’ll have a mess on your hands!)
- Start the grill at a high temperature to heat it, and then reduce the heat to medium to grill
When I make BBQ chicken breasts, I slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally so they are only half as thick. Like with grilled cheese, I heat the grill at a high temperature, but then reduce it to medium to grill the chicken.
Hamburgers are slightly different on the indoor grill. I cook them at a high temperature the entire time.
I can’t wait to read your kitchen tips tonight through tomorrow! Just leave me a comment with a link to your post!
