5 Indoor Grilling Tips

Expand Your Menu

One of the tricks to learning how to get the most out of your indoor grill is to expand your menu. You can always cook steaks, chicken and other grilled meats, but your indoor grill has the advantage of being able to cook hot pressed sandwiches as well. A hot Italian cheese panini is really just a fancy grilled cheese sandwich. A skilled chef may attempt to cook one over the open flame of an outdoor barbecue, but chances are, you'd end up with a big cheesy mess. The indoor grill is perfect for making these popular restaurant sandwiches for a fraction of the cost. Using thick flatbreads, some light olive oil spray and lean meats is a good option for making a healthy grilled panini.
