It sounds like a recipe for disaster: putting a cheese sandwich in the toaster! But that's just what we had some kids do to make the main course of their meal---grilled cheese sandwiches.
Toastabags say they're a kid-friendly way to make all kinds of grilled sandwiches as well as a way to heat up frozen snacks. After all, some kids aren't allowed to turn on the stove, but they may make toast.
April, our first tester, thinks she knows what she's about to make: a big mess! But she puts two pieces of bread and a slide of cheese in the Toastabags and puts the bag into the toaster.
It takes two cycles, but when she pulls it out the second time the bread is toasted, the cheese is melted and still inbetween the bread. No mess, but a tasty sandwich!
We weren't as lucky when we tried the frozen snacks. It took Chase a full 10 minutes to try to cook breaded chicken rounds. When they finally got done, Chase decided it was too much time for what he finally got.
Carson and Cameron tried out frozen french fries. They too, took a long time to finally get hot. A thumbs up---eventually---from Carson. But what did he ask us to fix him before we left? A toaster cheese sandwich!
We ordered ours from King Arthur Flour's website. The link is on the left.
