Rediscovering George (Foreman)

When my husband and I first got married, we purchased the famed George Foreman Grill.  We used it to grill our chicken breasts and turkey burners.  Trying to be healthy, we cooked a lot of chicken on the grill.  BLAH!  We got tired of it.  Personally, I think it dries out chicken breasts.  Chicken  breasts really aren't bad for you, anyway, so I suppose the George Foreman Grill is overkill when it comes to cooking that.  Needless to say, the grill found it's way to the back of our cabinet and stayed there.  I recently had the thought that I needed to get the grill out to put with the items we are selling at our garage sell.  But, with our griddle going out, I decided to use George for making grilled cheese/turkey sandwiches.  Guess what?  They turned out amazing AND they were pretty much pan-inis!  While making breakfast for dinner (a regular at our house) the other night, I decided to try to cook bacon in the George.  I have to admit that I remembered you could do this because I had just recently watched the episode of The Office when Michael Scott burns his foot on his George Forman grill while cooking bacon at his bedside.  I cooked the slices for 4 minutes on each side and it was seriously the tastiest bacon!  It was perfect in texture and taste, and I am guess a whole lot healthier for us since it wasn't cooked in the fat.  So, I suppose I will keep George a little longer.  He has proven to be a faithful and healthful cooking companion!
