It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s grilled cheese!

toaster grilled cheeseI want this recipe to work. I NEED this recipe to work. Because I have kids, and everyone knows that kids consume twice their body weight in grilled cheese on a daily basis. Being able to make fast and easy toaster grilled cheese as detailed on Grilled Cheese Social would vastly improve the quality of my life, plus give me extra hours in the day to spend on Pinterest, pinning food that I won’t ever actually feed to my children because it’s too complicated, has more than two ingredients, or isn’t made in a toaster.

That’s why I choose to believe that CraftFail reader Coleen’s fail was due to a toaster malfunction, and not a problem with the recipe. I mean, I’m pretty sure not all toasters would forcefully regurgitate a grilled cheese.

toaster grilled cheese fail“It shot out of the toaster and landed like that,” reports Coleen. “Then my daughter says, ‘Uh, mom, there’s fire INSIDE the toaster.'”

Well, that can’t be good. It SHOT OUT? I read the recipe, and I didn’t see any instructions that said to duck and cover.

Still, I bet if I slapped a piece of cheese on there, my kids would eat it anyway –¬†after they finished choking on the toaster smoke, of course. Standards for edible food (and fire safety) are really low at my house.

    I turned my toaster on its side ONCE and all the crumbs that had collected in the bottom immediately hit the heating elements and started smoking :P Maybe someday I’ll clean my toaster and try again.

    This is VERY DANGEROUS. Toasters aren’t made to lie on their sides. Crumbs will fall into the heating elements, and you’re cutting off air circulation around the sides. Not to mention the risk of getting gobs of cheese inside the toaster.

    Do this, and you’re asking for a kitchen fire.

    Want quick cheese on toast? Make toast, put cheese on it, put in microwave.

    You could also try one of those sandwich maker machines or a toaster oven.

    Better yet, slightly toast the bread in a toaster oven with a slice of cheese on each slice of bread, then once the cheese begins to melt, slap it all together and butter crisp both sides of the sandwich in a small frying pan. Not low-calorie at all, but it’s the best thing you’re likely to put in your mouth on any given day.
