"Super easy and quick way to make grilled cheese. My daughter loves these almost as much as the ones I do in the pan on top of stove."

    These are a huge hit with the kids at the before and after school program where I work. We serve breakfast and only have access to a toaster and microwave. The kids prefer them without the mayo or butter and I use 2 slices of cheese. Served with a side of fruit and some juice or milk. These are a nice change from oatmeal, cereal, and bacon and egg bagels.

    I really enjoyed the ease of preparation but was not crazy about the mayo. I also found that the bread got a bit soft. Might be that I didn't toast it enough or my paper towel was too moist. I really like the idea and plan to prepare it again without mayo and more toasted bread. I could see adding some thinly sliced ham to it. Thanks for posting. :)

    It seems that no one likes the mayo. What's so difficult about making a grilled cheese sandwich on the stove top? If it was crispy that would be different. I think this is pure laziness and ridiculous. Just being honest.

    This was new for me too and it turned out very good! I used 1 slice muenster cheese and 1 slice sharp cheddar. Yum! Thanks!

    I make it in the toaster, but just using butter on both pieces of toast. Then I put two slices of cheese in between, and if I have bacon bits, I put some of those between the cheese. Then I put the sandwich on top of the toaster and lightly toast both sides to melt the cheese. Still crispy.
