If youre still not familiar with your toaster oven or you ever wonder what it can and cannot cook, I totally recommend trying the good old grilled cheese sandwich. Because of the even and consistent heat, the sandwich comes out delightfully brown and grilled in all the right places.

Now, the goal with having a toaster oven is unattended cooking. I know with some models that people have trouble having the lower part of the bread toaster properly in this case I recommend just sitting down and noting the time that it needs to cook properly. You only need to do it once. Also, if the Bake setting does not work, try Pizza instead.

If for some reason youre not in the grilled cheese camp yet, then its probably because of your choice of bread. The sticky white bread from seven-eleven just wont cut it flavor- and texture-wise, you need to go sourdough or multigrain.

Which cheese is best for a grilled cheese sandwich?

In terms of the contents, I usually just go with sharp cheddar, but if you want to shake things up a bit, heres my top three favorites:

  1. Havarti: melts great. Combine it with cheddar for a gooey-salty combination from heaven.
  2. Muenster: rich texture, great taste and melts so well. Pro-tip: spread a little Dijon or course mustard on the inside of the bread.
  3. Smoke gouda.

I know people who recommend adding bacon, broccoli or even sweet potatos as weird as that sounds but remember, if youre adding stuff to the cheese its no longer a grilled cheese sandwich but a melt.


  • Two slices of sourdough or multigrain bread
  • Cheddar or your choice of cheese
  • Softened butter or light mayo (low cal but every bit as good)


  1. Pre-heat your toaster oven to 425°F on the Bake setting.
  2. Spread butter or light mayo on the outside of your bread.
  3. Put your bread butter side down and spread cheese on it, then top with second slice butter side up.
  4. Remove the preheated pan and put the bread in. Cook until brown (about 5 minutes).
  5. Take it out carefully, flip with spatula and return it for another 3-4 minutes until the other side is brown as well.
  6. Cool, cut and enjoy.

Ive once again put together the recipe in a downloadable booklet for you. Hope you like it:
