If you know me you know that.... of my favorite food items is a grilled cheese sandwich. I order them about 35% of the time I go out to eat. While reading my monthly lover (aka Real Simple) they had a grilled cheese toaster bag. Obviously I ordered one the next day. Now what this amazing invention does is creates a grilled cheese for you in the toaster (just like the name says...what a concept)! To create this fabulous sandwich you put a slice of cheese between two pieces of bread, put the sandwich in the bag, put the bag in the toaster, and toast! have a great grilled cheese. These grilled cheese sandwiches are actually less fattening because you do not use butter to aid in the toasting of the bread. Now, don't get me wrong, its not the best grilled cheese on earth, but its pretty darn good for a lunch at work when I want a toasty sandwich. I ended up buying mine on Ebay for $5 for two bags. You can get up to 50 uses out of each bag and they are dishwasher safe. You can also make french toast (eggs and all), warm up pizza, the options are endless.
