Waffle Iron Grilled Cheese

Love this dish for that moment when you need something special, but time is limited–we’re back to waffling grilled cheese! I tucked in pieces of tomato confit before waffling, and it was out of this world. Perfect to make when you have a group of hungry teenagers stop by and no time to shop for groceries. All I can say is, there were no crumbs left.

Gluten Free Grilled Cheese

Think of this as an arts and crafts project. There is really no way to get it wrong – and if you do, you can make another. Make one first as a test to figure out your waffle iron and the timing.

What you’ll need:

  • White sandwich loaf bread (gluten free or regular)
  • Shredded cheese of your choice
  • Softened butter

Butter the outsides of both slices of bread. Place desired amount of cheese in between the slices and delicately place sandwich in your pre-heated waffle iron. I placed mine right in the center to get the beautiful lines. When the waffle iron beeps, it’s probably done, but take a peek and make sure it’s to your liking. We found longer was better, as the cheese became less gooey and more crunchy.

    • Oh my gosh and it totally was! Isn’t there something about waffles – they just make people happy. If you haven’t tried doing this in a waffle iron, its a must.
