Lunch is a crucial meal of the day. You don't have a lot of time to spare and you don't want to just eat whatever you can find, so it's one of the harder meals to prepare well for. Such was the dilemma for me, until I got turned onto the George Foreman style grills.

This bad boy came into my possession after visiting my carnivore buddy in Montana. He had the real deal, but I found this knockoff electric two sided griddle that serves the same purpose. 

You can cook anything in them, but ground beef patties work the best. What I do for lunch, is make a 1/3 of this package into a hamburger patty and then put the rest back in the fridge to use the next time around.

Works great. Keeps it sealed up and ready for action.

When I come over at noon, I just pinch off another 1/3.

Pound it into a patty and throw it on the grill. I like to spray the grill with Pam first, helps with the cleanup. 

Close the lid and wait for the green light to come on. It only takes about three minutes to cook. 


After you unplug it is a good time to get some cheese melting. 

Grab a bun and some Cool Ranch Doritos and you're good to go. 

Super slick. With this cooking set up, I can walk in the house and be comfortably done eating within 30min. Leaving just enough time for a 15min siesta. Aside from that, this makes for an ideal sized lunch. No bloating from eating too much, and no getting hungry at 3:00 from not eating enough. Gotta love ground beef. I could eat a hamburger for any meal of the day. But a fresh cooked burger at lunchtime can't be beat. Don't just take my word for it, though. Give it a go.
