We recently teamed up with Megan from Country Cleaver, who created some delightful dishes perfect for ringing in the new year. From tasty appetizers for your New Year's Eve party to an unforgettable first meal of the new year, Megan has you covered with some mouthwatering and easy-to-make options with the Calphalon 5 in 1 Removable Plate Grill. Read her culinary inspiration below, and click here to discover her recipes.

"The new year is the perfect time to celebrate, and every year my friends and I get together to talk about the year behind us and make plans for the year ahead. We laugh and reminisce about the fun that we had and the places we went, and (as you can imagine) there is plenty of food involved!

This year, I used my new Calphalon 5 in 1 Removable Plate Grill to make mini Panini sandwiches for New Year’s Eve – it was quick and easy, and the hot toasted sandwiches were just perfect for the cold night. Then on New Year’s Day, I opened the 5 in 1 Grill flat and flipped the plates to the griddle position to make French toast on one side and sausage bites on the other. It was a snap!

The party food possibilities are endless. Cleanup is super easy – all you have to do is remove the nonstick plates and put them in the dishwasher. It was great because that meant I could get back to the festivities and not miss a moment of the fun. The holidays are meant to be shared with those you love, not spent tucked away inside the kitchen! The 5 in 1 Grill helped me set out a table full of tasty treats in no time and get back to having fun. Now that’s the way to start a new year off right!

Best wishes to all for a fabulous 2013!"
