Hello

As you may know we are working with George Foreman Grills to promote their range of grills.

George Foreman say "We've been wowed by the response we've had from Mumsnetters to our George Foreman testing! The feedback has been great and it's fab to see all the new meal ideas which can be made on our grills"

They are now after your best grill based family recipes to feature on some new GF recipe cards. Recipes can include savoury and sweet dishes that could cooked already on a GF grill, or indeed ones which are cooked by you on a regular grill or BBQ but that you think could be adapted for a GF grill.

Add your recipe below and the MNers submitting the 10 best recipes chosen by the George Foreman team will each win a Russell Hobbs Creations Food processor worth £44.99 and available exclusively to Argos. Key key criteria to win would be that your submission is creative, versatile and family friendly.

The top 10 recipes chosen will then be "professionalised" by the team at George Foreman into recipe cards with photography and put on the GF pages on Mumsnet and on the main GF website for people to download. If your recipe/ fav grill prep is picked you will also receive a hard copy set of the winning recipes.

Add your recipe to this thread - this will need to be your own recipe - or your own adaptation of one. You're also welcome to email in any photos of your creations to insight@mumsnet.com (subject line: George Foreman recipe)

For ideas see Mumsnet BBQ recipes here or the George Foreman recipes here.

In addition you can check out the video our MNers helped create following the recent demo day in Manchester here

Thanks and good luck

Hi! A quick and easy delicious recipe we do is spicy chicken. You will need chicken breasts ( cut into strips) yogurt, curry paste (shop bought, you can make your own but hardly easy for a busy mum) mintsauce (optional) pitta breads and salad. Mix chicken, paste and yogurt leave for 30 mins or more if you have time! Get GF nice and hot then cook for about 20 mins so nice and juicy. Whilst the chicken is cooking, toast the pitta breads and fill with salad. With the spare yogurt you could mix this with mint sauce to make a nice sauce for the top of the chicken. Easy and yummy! When the chicken is cooked place inside the salad stuffed pitta bread dollop some sauce on top and bon appetite! Cheap, quick, easy, delicious and a family favourite!

I make lamb kebabs - chunks of lamb neck fillet alternated with red and green pepper and onion and cherry tomatoes, brushed with olive oil and cooked in the grill, serve with a lovely green salad and home made tzaziki, yum!

Sorry, that should read "on a skewer".

We are a gluten / corn free house and I struggle with bread substitutes and don't want to cook too much with oil (though I do add it unheated to food. I make potato rosti on the grill.

Peel and cook potatoes for 8 minutes and refrigerate overnight. Immunologist has suggested refrigeration makes the proteins more easy to digest. Grate potatoes, shape into patties, brush lightly with virgin olive oil and grill. They make wonderful grain free buns for burgers.

TheBirdsFellDownToDingADong Mon 24-Jun-13 19:28:31

Auberginey thingy:

Thick slices of aubergine (don't be faffing with the soaking malarkey, not necessary) Grill on grill thingy, put to one side.

Do same with thick slices of tomato

Make mini towers of aubergine, tomato and a cheese of your choice (feta is good or mozzarella for the wusses) Between each layer put a basil leaf and sprinkle oregano on the tomato layer. Make the top layer a cheese layer and sprinkle breadcrumbs on top. Skewer it vertically and regrill just to melt the cheese.

Greek chicken- it's delicious!
You'll need:
Skinless Chicken breasts or skinless and boneless chicken thighs 400g
1 small tub natural yogurt
Mint sauce
A ziplock freezer bag

Chop the chicken into thin strips then put them in your freezer bag then add the yogurt, 3 desert spoonful's of mint sauce. Seal the bag and mix the ingredients around. Squeeze out all the air from the bag and smoosh it all together. Put in the fridge to marinate for at least 1hr but overnight is best. The longer you marinate it the better it will taste- the acids in the yogurt and mint sauce will break down the protein in the chicken and make it cook quickly but still taste moist and tender.

Cook on a hot grill for about 10 minutes. This recipe is great because you can you can add veggies to the grill and make skewerless kebabs (serve with pitta bread and couscous and maybe a greek salad for a fun summer meal), or even put the meat on skewers and have an indoor bbq for the days when you need a bit of summer but the weather isn't co-operating. You can also use the chicken for lunch boxes, simply take the cooked chicken and some pita bread and a bit of lettuce and you've got a really healthy lunch time.

Not really worthy of winning a grill but I had my first George Forman when I was a student. We all chipped in for one in our shared house.

It was used endlessly to make toasties. We started off with good old cheese and onion, bread buttered on the outside.

We became more adventurous later and would make paninies with various fillings, often with baked beans (student staple!)

my favourite recipe from student days is one I make for my children now, a cheats calzone pizza.

Pre made pizza dough or home made rolled out to be slightly larger than a slice of bread.
Leave 1cm edge all around and spread tomato purée/ketchup sprinkle with sliced red onion, cheese, and any other pizza favourites, usually ham mushroom or sweet corn in our house.

Fold in half and press the dough together with a fork. I put a little butter on the dough so it's nice and crispy when it cooks.

It takes about ten
Mins to cook in my gf but probably less in a new one, my current one is 10 years old and cooking times are a little longer.

Also works well with pre bought puff pastry, or even a slice of normal bread. Tried it with a tortilla once which was a failure as it burnt before the filling was ready.

2 Good quality pork chops, marinaded in a mixture of:

Grilled fruit kebabs - not sure where we got this recipe from, but have adapted it a bit over the years!

thread chunks of fresh pineapple, peach or nectarine, and whole strawberries on to kebab sticks (other fruits that work well include banana, kiwi fruit, and mango).
brush them with melted butter then dust with icing sugar.
grill (we normally bbq this) for a few minutes on each side.

serve with a chocolate yoghurt dip made by mixing 1 tbsp of maple syrup with 1 cup of greek yoghurt and 2 tbsp of cocoa powder. (this is even better with grated chocolate stirred into it btw, but we don't tend to bother with it when making this for the kids to eat!)

BoysWillGrow Tue 25-Jun-13 16:24:06

Chicken thigh fillets marinated in pataks paste, and plan yogurt (tikka is great as all the family can enjoy it as not too spicy).

Then grilled and served on pappadoms with a dressing of chopped tomatoes, spring onions and red onions.

Grilling the marinated chicken really helps keep those fab flavours in!

Makes a great starter when served on mini pappadoms or a great dish otherwise!

I loved my GF grill till it developed an electrical fault - probably just a bad batch - and I used to cook lean pork steaks regularly. Marinate in a mixture of crushed garlic cloves (x2), soya sauce (2tbsps), honey (1 tbsp), a good pinch of mixed herbs and 2tbsps of ketchup... Leave in the fridge for a couple of hours, mix again thoroughly, grill and serve with a crusty baguette and a crisp summer salad! Yum! smile

My favourite super easy grill recipe is tikka prawns. Marinate raw tiger prawns in yogurt and tikka spices (or any mixture of spices/curry powder/tikka paste).
Soak wooden skewers in water.
When you're ready to go, thread the prawns onto wooden skewers.
Grill the prawn skewers. Delicious.

My favourite is a courgette mint buffalo mozzarella salad.

For a light lunch for two:

Three medium courgettes - cut on the diagonal so you have thinnish ovals about as thick as a £1 coin. Toss with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and grill till tender but not floppy. Black grill lines a bonus.

While the courgettes are grilling, tear 2 balls of buffalo mozzarella into a shallow dish. The milky liquid will pool in the bottom of the bowl (this is a very good thing).

When the courgettes are done, add to the dish with the mozzarella. Tear over a large handful of mint, drizzle with the best extra virgin olive oil you can afford (the greener and pepperier the better). Sprinkle with salt and pepper and mix gently.

The warm courgettes make the mint and mozzarella get all fragrant and melty and there is a puddle of gorgeous juice at the bottom of the salad bowl to dip crusty bread into.

Lovely served with cold meats like parma ham/salami/saucisson sec/jamon serrano etc, crusty bread and radishes with cold butter.

*NB. If you can get burrata this is even nicer - instead of tearing into a bowl and tossing through the grilled courgette, arrange the grilled courgette onto a plate, sprinkle mint and olive oil over, and place the burrata on top (it's too wibbly and soft to be torn and tossed).

Grilled Fruit Kebabs (Gotta have a desert)

Ingredients

Chunked fruit (any will do but these are good)
Pineapple
Banana
Apple
Kiwi
Strawberries
Peaches

Glaze- rum (optional but yummy), honey, lemon juice

Mix the glaze into a large bowl and add the fruit.
Gently swirl it round until all of the fruit is coated.
Put on wooden skewers and grill on a clean grill for approx 2 minutes.
Fruit can burn quickly so don't leave it.
The rum can flare up.
Serve with cream or ice-cream.

Forgot- you can add more glaze as cooking. smile

It's long winded but loved...

Finely slice an onion
Finely cube 2 carrots, red pepper, a handful of mushrooms and a garlic clove
Fry until cooked (I use rapeseed oil)
Carefully fold into 500g of sausage meat, using a beaten egg if needed or a dollop of honey (can also use beef or turkey mince)
Divide into 4 or 6 and shape into burgers
Sprinkle with flour
Grill

If you're super chef some grated cheese in the middle turns them into gorgeous cheesy melts too.

Crush some garlic and mix it into butter.
Take a pitta bread and score lines into it. Brush the garlic butter over it and grill/BBQ until crispy. It's so simple yet a big favourite at our house

If there's still time to submit a recipe - this is one of our favourite grill/BBQ recipes. We simply call it "Feta Peppers" (instructions for this is based on using a standard grill, but lots of fun to BBQ)

Take 4 peppers (we prefer red/orange or yellow peppers for the sweetness)
Depending on shape and size either quarter or half, and remove the seeds etc.

Lightly score and season with sea salt and black pepper.

Drizzle very lightly with olive oil and cook inside-down for approximately 4 minutes.

Remove from the grill, turn back up, and add squares of feta cheese to the insides of the peppers, then drizzle again with olive oil.

Return to the grill and cook under the peppers are just starting to blacken very slightly, and the feta is softened and starting to bubble

Best eaten immediately with fingers, although it is a little messy! Delicious, and something that the whole family can enjoy. Perfect with a couscous salad, or as a side accompaniment to grilled meat.

Mix together the lamb mince, finely chopped rosemary, breadcrumbs, a tablespoon of tomato purée and egg, and season with salt and pepper. Do it with your hands, even though it feels vile. Flour your hands and shape the mixture into burgers. Chill for 40 minutes then grill. When the burgers are almost done, fry the slices of chorizo and haloumi and a small pan. Build your burger and voila! So simple but tastes amazing.
