Iron Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Manly hack for a snack
Frankly speaking, I try not to eat dairy products. My day starts with a pitch black espresso and I wouldn't ever think of drinking white coffee. But even though I try to do my best in finding dairy-free products, I’m not always successful. Sometimes I even break the rules by eating pizza. But this time I’ve sinned in a different way.

I was working late in our workshop, having a feeling that I could eat a horse, when I saw bread and cheese we used in Egg in the Basket tutorial. Since dried out sandwich with cheese was certainly not the combination I was craving for, I got a crazy idea. Having seen the hack with heating pizza with an iron some time ago, I thought that this solution would also be perfect for grilling my sandwich. That’s how I came up with Iron Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

The plan went so well that I decided to share it with you. Maybe when in need of a quick snack, some of you will make a 2-in-1 out of your iron? As always, let us know how you liked the idea in comments on our fan page . Bon Appétit!;)

What you need:

Tools:

  • cutting board
  • iron
  • knife

Supplies / ingredients:

  • toast bread
  • cheese/mozarella
  • butter (for cheese version)
  • rucola
  • baking paper or paper sandwich bags
Supplies
1

Spread the butter thinly onto the bread. I chose wholegrain toast bread to cheat myself that I’m eating healthy stuff ;)

2

Put as much cheese on bread as you like. Of course, you can put some add-ons inside like rucola or ketchup. Then cover the sandwich with the second slice of bread.

Put the whole thing into a paper sandwich bag. As things can get messy, keep a dishcloth at hand.

Set your iron on maximum temperature and wait till it’s hot. When iron’s light goes off, place it on your sandwich.

Wait few minutes till you’ll hear hissing and smell a tasty scent. Don’t hurry as the cheese has to melt a bit – you can always check what’s going on inside by peeking into the bag. Be sure to check if the skin of your sandwich is roasted – if your iron is of a “cosmic” power, you can reduce the temperature.

When your sandwich is lovely roasted and the cheese started to melt, flip the whole thing to the other side and grill it again.

It’s time to take your delicacy off the bag. You can help yourself with a spatula or a knife as the sandwich can stick to it.

And now you’re just one moment away from eating this luscious and tempting treat. You can wolf it at once but I advise you to taste it in a company of rucola and sun-dried tomatoes.
