Bloody genius!

5/5 I wish I had known about this when I had my first bed-sit, 50 years ago! Mind you, I don't think I owned an iron then! Jerry, aka Chef (talk)

Who needs a sandwich toaster to make toasted cheese sandwiches? Use a domestic clothes iron instead - just don't forget the aluminium foil!

Mise en place

  • Ensure the iron is not on the steam setting. Set it to the hottest setting. Once the light goes out for the first time we're ready to cook!


  1. Lay the cheese on un-buttered bread
  2. Fill the sandwich with enough cheese to go just to the edge of the bread
  3. Butter both slices of bread on the outside - no butter goes in the middle of the sandwich
  4. Lay the sandwich on a single piece of fin-foil
  5. Wrap well so the contents won't leak
  6. Place the iron on top of the foil sandwich, leave for 5 minutes.
  7. Turn the sandwich and iron the other side for another 5 minutes
  8. Eat!

Serving suggestions

Serve with Branston pickle.


Add a slice of ham.
