Oven Grilled Cheese

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by daggle

A quick and easy way to make lots of grilled cheese sandwiches without cooking 1 or 2 at a time. Saw this on TV a few years ago and decided to make some for my daughter’s sleepover. It went over well. The recipe is for 1 sandwich, but I’m going to bet all the wonderful chefs on Recipezaar know how to make more at one time.

I love making grilled cheese sandwiches without the time consuming grilling of them one or two at a time! When my 5 children brought their friends home for lunch, I would have been grilling sandwiches until dinner the old way! I've never tried baking them before now, as I eventually started to broil a cookie sheet full of cheese sandwiches at a time and that worked out well, browning them fairly evenly. What I do like about baking them is that it doesn't require watching them so closely (like broiling does) to keep them from getting too dark. Thanks for sharing!
