Awesome Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

"My husband and I were sick of frying grilled cheeses on the stove because you have so many pieces of bread to use, and you have to stand there for a long time if you feed up to six people like we do. So we came up with this idea."

Curiosity got the better of me and I just had to try this method of "cooking" grilled cheese sandwiches. It's a really great idea if you need a whole bunch at one time. I don't run into that p...

This is the only way I make grilled cheese. This is how they made it when I was in school. I usually have to make 10 sandwiches at a time and this cuts the time in half! It's really, really t...

I love the texture of these sandwiches. They're crispy and flavorful instead of soft and squishy they way ones on the stove are. I doubt I'll be making grilled cheese sandwiches any other way ...
