    That’s the exact same thing that I do for a quick grilled cheese lunch. When you’re not using American cheese it takes a bit longer, but I think it’s worth it for Pepper Jack Grilled Cheese.

      I’ve never tried pepper jack before, but I have tried other cheeses and it was pretty good too. But as you said, American Cheese is quick and predictable with respect to cooking time.

    Looks so tempting and even the picture is just so perfect. I take the usual toast with either butter or American cheese but most of the time its butter. Instead of grilling cheese over the stove I’ll try what you shared, thanks! ;)

      The version is use is very close to grilled cheese and much quicker…

      It’s all time savings :)

    Its funny how you think you are the only one who does something only to find out that many people are doing the exact same thing. I usually put butter on it though. Just doesnt taste the same without it.

      True, but I’m willing to bet that I did this technique before you did :)

      In fact, I’m willing to bet I did this before most people did (lol). I just assumed that everybody did it. Imagine my surprise whenever I make one that people around me are amazed.

    A quick delicious meal no matter how old or young you are. I just hope my son see that in the future. Right now he is like his mom. :)

    Got me craving a grilled cheese now MR, although I love a slice of ham in the middle and a pickle on the side!

      Drat, I was going to mention sliced ham as an alternative (and that is still very quick to make too).

      I agree, that’s an awesome combo :)

    I like to use a mix of cheeses, say provolone with American cheese. Sometimes with trimmings like a slice of ham and tomato. Heaven!!

    Salsa Dogs:

    Microwave hot dog for 25 seconds. Place on slice of bread. Pour cool salsa over dog and bread. Enjoy. Caution: may require napkin to avoid mess.

      hmm, sounds like a great combo! I’ll have to try that one for sure (esp since I really enjoy salsa)!

    When my husband and I moved in together and consolidated stuff, we opted for keeping my iron as he admitted the only thing he ever used his for was making grilled cheese sandwiches.
