With summer slipping away and autumn rain starting up, you might think that grilling season is almost gone. But with an indoor electric grill, it’s easy to enjoy grilled meats, fish and vegetables all year long, rain or shine. And that’s a good thing because an indoor electric grill reduces the dangers associated with smoke, dripping fat and the flare-ups that cause meat to burn and become carcinogenic.
Our indoor grills have some additional advantages, like drip trays for less mess and removeable grids for easy cleanup. The affordable Hamilton Beach Searing Grill with Lid Window features a ceramic nonstick grilling plate and a removable lid that can go straight in the dishwasher. And that’s the other great advantage of an indoor electric grill: no scraping required.
Try these easy recipes on your indoor grill for a taste of summer in any season:
Grilled Romaine Salad with Creamy Caesar Dressing
Grilling lends more taste to lettuce than salad dressing ever could on its own. This savory grilled salad gets its signature flavor from anchovies, parmesan, Worcestershire and Dijon mustard.
Grilled Corn and Black Bean Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing
Made with grilled corn on the cob, chopped cilantro and fresh lime juice, this hearty salad is light and summery but also quite satisfying. It’s a great source of protein for vegetarian family members or guests.
Grilled Tequila Lime Shrimp Tacos
What could be better than shrimp marinated in tequila and cooked on the grill? The same grilled shrimp inside a tortilla with avocado, cilantro and grilled peppers.
