My “contribution” to this fabulous recipe sharing idea is what NOT to do
while cooking grilled cheese sandwiches. Do NOT try to multitask and
get things done while cooking.

I need to remember that I have burned the crap out of every grilled cheese sandwich I’ve made in the past few months, and pay closer attention.

Please, do not let your grilled cheese sandwiches end up like mine.

Three burned grilled cheese sandwiches.

For the record, my kids would not touch them. I wasn’t so picky and ate them anyway.

    I KNEW you would be posting about burnt grilled cheese sandwiches…what else would you do?

  • Pieces of My Life

    LOL!! Those actually look damn good to me…I’d think the burned bread adds a certain je ne sais quois…

  • David Jopke

    THIS right here (among many other things) is why you’re awesome my friend!!!! As Rachel said, what else would you do?!?

    My dearest Scott… one thing is glaringly absent from this picture…KETCHUP!. I always thought that this was how grilled cheese was supposed to look. Then I had one made for me the correct way. MMMM makes me want one now.

  • Lorraine

    Don’t forget the ketchup and Diet Coke!

    Rachel, when we got these as kids we’d scrape the burnt toast off with a knife (over the sink). It works really well, just don’t do it in front of the kids. Of course then you wouldn’t have all those sandwiches to yourself.

    Dude it is called “Blackened” big deal down in the Big Easy.

    How burnt do they have to be before they are O carbs?

  • sisiay

    if they didn’t look like that, you’d have to just call them “warm cheese sandwiches” or “barely melted cheese sandwiches”. keep up the good work :)

  • Sysy Morales

    Dude whatever, I would so eat these!!!! Thanks for posting, I had forgotten how good grilled cheese sandwiches are (and I do like them a tad burnt). Here I come fall/winter 2010!

  • George

    Dude they still look good to me. As long as there is some brown showing and it’s not all black, I am in.

  • Karen

    I’m with Bernard – scrape them with a knife and you are good to go. LOL Actually, reading your post makes me want to come cook for you!!

  • karena

    ketchup or ranch dressing and those are totally good to go. Or even just like that. Those of us who don’t cook can’t be too picky!!

  • Cherise

  • Scott K. Johnson

    Haha! You guys are fabulous and make me SMILE!!!
    I always eat my grilled cheese sandwiches with TONS of ketchup (and sodapop, of course)!

  • Bob P

    Hmmm….so “accidentally” burning the sandwiches took you from getting to eat one sandwich to getting to eat three sandwiches? Acciidental. Hmmmm….. :)
