Not So Grilled Cheese
Hello All! This is the first post by Emilee, and well it's not actually mine! This one was The Mr. Chip's
disaster project. Ahem. Here Goes!
The Original Pin
Awesome right! Who knew?! Grilled Cheese, easy on the Grilled.
What Went Wrong
A few things went wrong here:
If you read the directions, instead of just going off of the picture, it would have told you that this "trick" doesn't work on ALL toasters, however, it then goes on to say that this only works on a toaster without a "Toast Cage", AND (here's where they get ya') if the cheese does NOT melt off the side. So in all reality this only works if there is in fact no cheese involved at all, lame right?! Because really what is a Grilled Cheese without melty cheese?!
In Chip's experiMELT he turned the toaster over, put in the cheese and bread, just as the pictures shows, and well...our toaster caught on fire. So this project is a bust.
Go to your local Wally World, and buy a Toaster Oven!
...and well another option is to carefully place your cheese on the bread, and make sure you REALLY watch it, because the cheese can get out of hand really quickly. Another thing to consider is that toasters were not meant to be on their sides, so the heat has no where to go if it can't vent up, causing to much heat, and then fire. Overall this "trick" was a bust and safety hazard, so if I were you I would stick with traditional toast, or traditional Grilled cheese, on a grill, the way they were meant to be. Happy Toasting!
