Griller/panini Maker?

Recommended Posts

Hi -

 

I just received a griller/panini maker as a gift (think George Foreman Grill- type, but a different brand), and I'd love recommendations for types of gluten-free bread to use with it.  I plan to use it to grill chicken breasts and burgers, but would also like to make some panini-type sandwiches.

 

I appreciate any and all recommendations.  I've been wanting one of these for a long time, and the family knows that it's to be strictly gluten free (although the plates are dishwasher washable, so they're asking me why they can't use it too)

 

Thanks!

I love my countertop grill.  I grill chicken on it all the time.  Just get chicken breasts, try not to get ones that are too thick that will take a long time to cook.  If they are really big, you can make them into cutlets by cutting in half.  The main difference with a countertop grill and regular grill is that the food needs to be touching the plates to cook, there isn't going to be even cooking on something that is oddly shaped, so uniform thickness really helps.  If the lid tilts, arrange all the thick parts of the food on one end, and the thinner parts on another end, so that the lid touches everything evenly.

 

When I do chicken or pork chops on the countertop grill, I just use salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and I spray a little bit of olive oil on the chicken so it doesn't stick (chicken breasts don't really put off any fat).  Those things cook really fast, so especially if you are going to cook steak, you have to watch it so it doesn't overcook.  But overall a very handy appliance, I use mine all the time.  I try to hand wash my plates instead of doing them in the dishwasher, seems to make them last longer. And definitely keep it gluten free!  I take mine with me to relative's houses when I travel, lots of things can be cooked on them if needed.
