Turned sideways, it looked like the toaster could accommodate a nice open faced grilled cheese. One word: FAIL! Two more words: burnt toast. The weight of the sandwich pressed up against the burners and started to smoke. This perhaps would work in another toaster, but certainly not mine.
I did, however discover that the waffle iron makes a great grilled cheese sandwich, with the help of Pinterest. It presses it much like a panini and the kids got a kick out of their sandwiches looking like waffles!
To do this, all you need to do is heat up your waffle iron and put the sandwich (buttered on both sides) into the iron for 3-4 minutes, or until your bread is golden brown. Depending on the side of the waffle iron, you can put in more than one sandwich at a time. This is a fun way to switch up a grilled cheese!
