Turn Toaster Sideways to Make Grilled Cheese

Pin It Now!















The other day when I was browsing on the internet, I found this brilliant idea from Grill Cheese Social that I had to give it a try right away.



How to make grilled Cheese in a toaster? Turn the toaster sideways!




I tried, and it worked! It gets the job done faster then using a toaster oven.
Tips:
Make sure the size of the cheese slice is smaller than the bread. For safety reason!!!
You may want to rotate your toasts when it's half way through.
Also, remember to pop your toasts out before they are done and flying out of the toaster!!!! (I've learned my lesson. haha!)
This may not work if you have a new and fancy toaster.

I know it's not the best way to make your grilled cheese. It's just something interesting I tried!

PS, the Mickey Mouse was cut from two slice of salami. One slice for the face; used straw to cut 2 little circles from the other slice.  It was placed on the grilled cheese after!

  4. I did some research before trying it. People had success with this trick when they used old and cheap toasters. I guess the toasters are made differently now.

  6. Hate to break it to you, but melted cheese will drip oil right onto the heat coils, aka ridiculous fire hazard. Doing this is foolish and unnecessarily risky, and teaching your kids to do this is just such a terrible idea I don't even know what to say.

  7. Not to mention crumbs, which would normally fall straight down to the bottom, but which will now land on the heat coils.

  8. Thank you so much for all the comments :D
    No, I won't suggest kids to do this. This is just an idea I found online and tried.n

  9. Yeah I tried this once with a plastic toaster. Turned my back for 10 seconds and there were foot high flames that were about to set my cabinets on fire. I'm 30 years old and don't even want to think about kids trying this. This is great way to burn your house down! DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME, NOT EVER!!!

  12. I use a sandwich pocket press (like the KrustBuster or the one from Pampered Chef - or just use a fork to moosh the edges together yourself)and pop them into the toaster as sandwiches. Safer that way, since my toaster stays upright and all the crumbs and oils stay at the bottom, where they belong! :) You can microwave it a bit first, to get the cheese meltier too. Then crisp up the bread in the toaster! A great way to use up scraps of cheese and lunch meats from bento making!

  14. It looks very good. Great idea.

  15. this is very very dangerous. don't do it.

  16. I hope you are held personally responsible when this kills a young family. This is about as bad as a fire hazard gets in the home.

    YOU ARE AN IDIOT IF YOU DO THIS.

  17. You can find a prize in my blog. I hope you.

  18. Great way to burn your house down. Really. I can not imagine a better way to commit insurance fraud. Absolutely brilliant. That *is* what you were going for, right? Because if it isn't, then this is an impressively horrendous idea and I hope you're sued for your stupidity in recommending this to people. You're going to get someone killed.

  19. A safer way to make grilled cheese without using the stove is to toast only the bread normally in the toaster, while you do this, microwave 2 slices of cheese for 5 seconds so they just start melting together a bit... then put the cheese on the bread and microwave the sandwich for 15-20 seconds, the bread remains crunchy and the cheese melts perfectly. I don't like butter but you could also put butter on the bread after toasting it if you feel like it. Safe and quick.

  20. It does sound much safer! Thank you thank you for sharing!

  21. You can try toasting your bread. Then add a small amount of butter and a slice of cheese. Then put in microwave for 12 seconds and you have the same out come only safer. This kids can do themselves. But Tom is right even if you do this and not your kids you risk a fire. Not a good idea.

  23. I'm going to try the toaster/microwave combination posters have been stating! I'm a freshmen in college, in a dorm room, so making food without a kitchen can prove to be difficult. I smuggled a toaster in here without my RA knowing, and I wouldn't want to take the risk of actually toasting a grilled cheese sandwich..

    Can you imagine if I set my dorm on fire?

  24. Enjoy your freshmen year, and don't burn down the dorm ^,^

  25. I wanted to try this for my daughter, who loves grilled cheese sandwiches. Sadly, my toaster wouldn't do squat on it's side haha. I wonder if I could pop it in upright and then quickly lay it on its side...

    Either way, fantastic idea!

    1. "I wonder" - how about trying it! Perhaps your toaster will pop "up" as soon as it detects it "fell" over for safety reasons.

  26. Great way to gum up your toaster when the "top" hold-rack gets stuck to the cheese AND feeding kids salami? Nitrates, pork, meat byproducts - how messed up are we with food?

  27. My kid would definitely loves this but whou would pay for it?

  28. But to be honest I would probably buy it anyway because as a child I used to love (and still) Mickey mouse. Oh that childhood :)
