Griddler by Cuisinart

I have one more simple, functional kitchen gadget that I’d like to share with you this week.  I was blessed with this item about three years ago, and I use it more now than ever before.  It’s called the Griddler by Cusinart.  It is also one of those low maintenance gadgets.

I like the fact that you can push the buttons on the sides to clean the plates.  There is also a pull out tray on the bottom of the griddler, which holds the excess oil.  This tray, along with the snap out griddler plates, take about five minutes total to clean.  There are additional plates that you can purchase to insert so that you can make your own homemade waffles.  With this push out system, it doesn’t get any easier than that.  What I usually do is to turn the griddler on to get hot for about six minutes, and then it usually takes another six minutes to cook whatever I need to fix. I have yet to make pancakes, sausages, or eggs on it.  I like it because it is a grill and a panini press at the same time.  This makes for fun, fast, creative sandwiches.  I will share two recipes that I have made with the Griddler by Cuisinart.  The first recipe is a Cheese Quesidalla, and the second one is a Bagel Mushroom Breakfast Sandwich.

Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40: 28-31, NIV

Have a blessed week!
