Three New Hand-Crafted Griddle Melts at IHOP {Review & $25 Gift Card Giveaway}

IHOP logo
Although there are a few conversations that I've had multiple times with my kids, one that occurs quite often begins with my Are you SURE you're done eating? Your belly is full? It's a long time until [next meal]!

At which time Big Sister E usually contemplates if she wants to eat more or Little Sister B replies I'm going to ask my belly. Belly are you full? and then, in a high-pitched, squeaky voice, Yes! I'm full!

Does any of this mean that either of them won't be complaining that they're hungry an hour later? If you've been around kids before, then you already know the answer to that.

So when it comes to filling my whole family up and keeping them satisfied throughout the day, I'm happy knowing that there are restaurants that know what it takes to continually reinvent the family dining experience.

And now they've done it again! IHOP, the chain known for its world famous buttermilk pancakes for more than half a century, has recently turned up the flavor for breakfast by announcing the availability of three new Griddle Melts!

IHOP griddle melts

For 53 years, IHOP has served its world famous pancakes and a wide variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner items that are loved by people of all ages. As we have always found that IHOP does indeed offer its guests an affordable, everyday dining experience with warm and friendly service, we were excited to get to head over for a visit.

After hearing about these new large, hearty, hand-crafted Griddle Melts, our mouths were watering to bite into the artisan sourdough bread even before we arrived at the restaurant.

IHOP restaurant

Right inside the front door, we found the three new Griddle Melts showcased in a special display... with each one looking just as delectable as the next.

IHOP sign

Spinach, Roasted Pepper & Cheese, Western or Ham & Egg Melt? Yum! Right away I appreciated that the three options ensure that whether you prefer a flavor that includes more vegetables or the taste of more meat, there is a Griddle Melt variety that is sure to be perfect for your meal:
  • Spinach, Roasted Pepper & Cheese: Sautéed fresh spinach in a fluffy egg omelet topped with roasted red peppers and onions, melted Provolone, Parmesan and Pepper Jack cheeses on grilled artisan sourdough bread. Served with your choice of hash browns, French fries or seasonal fruit.
  • Western: Smoked ham and sautéed peppers and onions in a classic omelet, topped with sliced ham, melted American cheese and served on grilled artisan sourdough bread. Served with your choice of hash browns, French fries or seasonal fruit.
  • Ham & Egg Melt: Sliced ham and melted Swiss and American cheeses over a fluffy egg omelet served on grilled artisan sourdough bread. Served with your choice of hash browns, French fries or seasonal fruit.
As soon as we made our way to our table, the Griddle Melts were calling me from there as well!

IHOP Griddle Melt sandwich

While all three Griddle Melt creations sounded tasty (and I love that you can select your side to make your meal more "breakfast" or more "lunch"), I decided on the Spinach, Roasted Pepper & Cheese and was happy to know that the chefs would begin to custom-make my sandwich just for me. If you've eaten a fast food breakfast sandwich that has been sitting out for a while, then you know the difference!

Sure enough, when my plate was put in front of me a short time later, this sandwich looked and smelled fresh and delicious!

IHOP Griddle Melts review

Mmmmmm!

I'm a big fan of quite a few breakfast foods, but the combination of this fluffy egg omelet with the melted cheeses, tasty red peppers and onions, and the thick artisan sourdough bread just works together so well!

IHOP Spinach, Roasted Pepper and Cheese Griddle Melt review

I had expected that I would enjoy this Griddle Melt, but not that I would love it so much from the first bite! I felt just as pleased with my meal as my kids did with their cute Create-A-Face pancakes — we were all grinning due to our happy bellies!

eating at IHOP

IHOP's hand-crafted Griddle Melts are available for $4.99 for a half sandwich and $6.99 for the full, so be sure to head over and try them today — they really are tasty for any meal of the day!

For more information on these (and all of IHOP's yummy meals) or to find an IHOP restaurant near you, visit IHOP.com. Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to try out the classic favorites or these new Griddle Melt creations themselves, because...

One lucky person will win a $25 gift card to IHOP!

I popped over to IHOP to look at nutrition information and the Ham and Egg melt was the best oddly enough. I'd probably pair a half sandwich with seasonal fruit. It's a little less calories than my 2X2X2 that I get when we have early breakfast and a little more than my half double blt with fruit that I get when I'm feeling a late late dinner(hubby sometimes gets off train at 2am. So IHOP and Dennys are "date" places.)
