Iron Grilled Cheese Sandwich

  • 2 slices whole grain bread
  • 1 teaspoon butter or margarine
  • 1 slice or grated cheese - easy on the cheese too much will melt out the sides and the bread will stick to the foil.
  • Tinfoil – can reuse several times
  • Iron – steam setting off
  1. Turn on your iron to highest setting – steam off!
  2. Spread 1 tsp margarine evenly over the 1 side of each of the slices of bread. Assemble sandwich. Wrap in tin foil.
  3. “Iron” one side for a couple minutes.
  4. Flip and iron the second side.

Until you are familiar with how long it takes to cook, check the sandwich frequently. You can't un-burn it!

Note: Always be careful when working with a hot iron to prevent a burn. The foil will also be hot so use care while opening the foil pouch. Unplug the iron when you are done using it.
