Grilling with my Homies (Grill Mat Review)

Have you seen the commercials for the new Grill Mats? We did and my hubbie remarked "Well those would be great if they really worked!" So we purchased them and used them last night while BBQing and put them through the test for you all!

A little background, these are Teflon, non-stick mats made to go on your grill. They are advertised as a clean grilling surface (no more BBQ scrub brushes!) while making clean up and cooking a breeze. It's prime grilling season in Arizona so we were excited to see if this would make our backyard cooking even easier!

On the menu were hamburgers (for the boys), Veggie Burger (for me) quartered baby red potatoes and zucchini sticks. I prepped the veggies with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic seasoning and then handed them over to the Adam to work his magic. 

He set the mat on the grill and then spread the veggies on the mat. We may have put too many veggies on the mat, his only complaint was that it was a little hard to stir the veggies without some falling off the surface. If somehow they could make a mat with small sides, it would be perfect (or, we could just cook less veggies, but we are both runners and we like to EAT so that's not an option haha!)

The veggies turned out PERFECTLY when cooked on the mat! The potatoes had a nice crisp to them as if they were roasted and there was ZERO burn marks on them which was amazing. They cooked more quickly and evenly then without the grill mats and clean up was a breeze. 

We can't wait to sue these grill mats all season long and also hear they make good oven cooking mats too (cookies for dessert anyone?)
