Is your stovetop broken? Have you just moved, and don’t have your own frying pan yet? Or are you just looking for an alternative way to make a grilled cheese sandwich? Here’s how to make your next lunch with an iron…
- Turn on your clothes iron. Set it to its highest setting (Linen or Cotton).
- Take 2 slices of bread and butter the outsides. Place cheese spread or cheese slices between them.
- Take a piece of tinfoil, roughly twice the size of the sandwich. With the foil shiny-side-up on the counter or stovetop, place the sandwich on the foil and fold it over to cover it completely.
- Set the hot iron flat on the foil-wrapped sandwich. This doesn’t hurt the iron at all. Let it sit on the foil for about 30 seconds, then peer inside the foil to see if it’s toasted. It will burn quickly.
- Flip the foil packet over, repeating Step 4.
- Open the foil, and flip the sandwich onto a plate. You can keep and reuse the foil several times. All you have to wash is a knife and a plate, and it takes less electricity than a frying pan.
- Don’t put too much cheese in the sandwich, or it will melt out the sides and the bread will get stuck to the foil.
- You can do this safely on your kitchen counter, but a clear spot on the top of the stove is safer.
