We like finding quick meals that are healthy for our family. Our go-to grill is the De’Longhi Livenza All-Day Grill with Digital Control. I prefer this because it has consistent heat from edge to edge. Plus, it has interchangeable plates, so you can use it for a flat-top (we use it to make pancakes) and it has a waffle attachment, so it is easy to move from one to another.
I like it because, unlike most presses, this grill opens up all the way, allowing you to use two cooking surfaces.
You can even set the temperature for each side, so if you want to toast the bun on one side and cook your burger on the other, you can! (I like to use the searing option, too).
I loved that you can use it as a broiler, because of the adjustable height. It was so easy to clean (with the easily removable plates). This alone is key for our busy lifestyle.
I used it tonight to make my Cranberry Turkey Bacon wrap. To make this, I took 1 pound of lean ground turkey and mixed it with 1/8 cup of chopped (very fine) cranberries. I added a little salt & pepper and placed it onto the De’Longhi Livenza All-Day Grill with Digital Control
Shape these into quarter inch patties. I have a burger mold and pre-made these, froze them, and was able to just grab a few out to make it for dinner. On the flat top, I cooked the frozen turkey patties for 8 minutes on each side at 375. I sliced onions and cooked it at the same temperature and for the same amount of time. I also cooked turkey bacon for 8 minutes (each side) at 415 degrees on the flat top.
Be sure to cook the patties until the turkey is no longer pink.
Wrap it all together in a lettuce wrap and top with your favorite sauce (I use a Sriracha based mayonnaise sauce that I make).
Speaking of making meals for the holidays, remember that this is a time to give to others. This holiday season De’Longhi celebrates by giving back to benefit Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, the national non-profit organization dedicated to funding research for safer, more effective treatments for pediatric cancer, the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S.
Cookies for Kids Cancer is close to our hearts because we know the family that started it, and the young boy that was the inspiration. My wife and I have been supporting Cookies for Kids’ Cancer for many years. Even though, the De’Longhi Days of Giving ended, you can still help by purchasing Cooking for Kids’ Cancer until December 31st. Every dollar raised will be matched dollar for dollar up to $250K. I am proud to support companies that give and De’Longhi is certainly doing that this holiday season.
