Grilled cheese & jam (in the toaster)

Yup, you read that right. I was kind of shocked when I saw this article on theKitchn, but 10 minutes later we were testing it out.

Some quick tips if you’re going to make this:

  • make sure your toaster is clean / relatively crumb-free
  • make sure your toaster is clean / relatively crumb-free
  • make sure your toaster is clean / relatively crumb-free
  • make sure the cheese doesn’t hang over the edge of the bread
  • don’t accidentally put the toaster upright
  • this will only work with a toaster that doesn’t have bread-holding cages that move in when you push down the toast button

Test your toaster on its side to make sure it doesn’t start to smoke (sorry for repeating, but I’m just sharing my lessons learned!). Put cheese on one piece of toast and put it in the toaster. Put a plain piece in the other slot. Toast lightly. Remove the plain piece of toast. Rotate the cheese piece 180 degrees to ensure even melting and toast again whilst you jam the other piece. When you’re done jamming, remove the cheese piece and slap ’em together. Enjoy a great sandwich.

Yes, this is kind of ridiculous, but it was tasty and fast. If you haven’t tried cheese and jam – try it now, you’re missing out.
