easy minimal clean-up grilled cheese for lazy assholes, a recipe made up half an hour ago by me, your local canadian lazy asshole
you will need: bread of your choice, cheese of your choice, butter/margarine of your choice
a toaster, a butter knife, a plate (optional), a microwave (optional)
- toast your bread of choice to the amount of toastiness you prefer (i made golden brown whole wheat bread). while it is toasting, gather all other supplies as close to the toaster as you reasonably can and make sure they are ready to use immediately (i.e. i used processed cheese so i peeled back the wrapper, i used margarine so i took the lid off the tub etc.).
- when your toast pops, snap to it. put one one slice on your plate (optional, can use hand or counter but not recommended), pop your cheese on top, and put the second slice on top as fast as possible, so the toast is still hot enough to kind of melt the cheese. press down on top if you want to glue them together a little better. spread a thin layer of butter/margarine on top of the top piece of bread, again while the toast is still hot.
- okay so if you want, you can just eat the damn sandwich as is, your choice. but my processed cheese was barely melted at all by this point, so i put it in the microwave to melt it a little more (settings vary microwave to microwave but i put mine in for thirty seconds on half power).
- when the cheese is melted to your liking, shove your face. enjoy.
the only clean up is the plate and the butter knife, and i guess your toaster and microwave if you clean those every time you use them or something makes a big mess but both of those scenarios are highly unlikely
much less effort than the whole pan on the stove thing, while yielding somewhat similar results
