Grilled cheese sandwiches are a lunch staple. They’re great on a snowy day at home served with a bowl of tomato soup or loaded up with bacon, tomatoes, and onion. My one beef with grilled cheese is that it doesn’t travel well. For example, no one wants to eat a grilled cheese sandwich that was cooked yesterday. It’s best served toasty and warm with gooey, melted cheese. That’s why I was so happy to find toaster bags from Amazon. Now I make fresh, hot, grilled cheese at work right from the toaster.
I frequently receive comments in the break room whenever I’m making grilled cheese at work. My colleagues first want to know what smells so good and next they ask where to buy toaster bags. I gave an extra bag to a coworker and now her teenage daughters make their own sandwiches at home. It’s much easier for them to use a toaster than a stove.
Directions for using toaster bags.
- Prepare ingredients: Slice cheese, slather bread with condiments, chop onions, whatever you prefer.
- Build sandwich and cut in half. Make sure sandwich is thin enough to fit in toaster slot.
- Place both pieces of sandwich in the toaster bag and put in one toaster slot.
- Toast on setting 4 or 5. Some toasters are warmer on one side so you may need to flip the toaster bag if a side is getting too brown.
- Let toaster bag cool and carefully remove from slot. Enjoy your grilled cheese!
I use a Black & Decker toaster with extra wide slots. There’s plenty of room for a sandwich or burrito on each side.
