No seriously, you can make a grilled cheese with your iron.  Actually, all you need is a little non-stick spray, aluminum foil, two pieces of bread, butter, cheese, and an iron.  And you could add other things to it too like turkey, chicken, spinach, tomato, avocado, etc.

But I am getting ahead of myself.

First, plug in your iron and put on medium-high setting.  Next butter one-side of each piece of bread.  Put cheese in between the un-buttered sides.

Take a piece of aluminum foil that’s big enough to cover your bread and spray the area where you’re going to put the buttered bread.

Then put the buttered bread in that area of the aluminum foil and cover completely. 

Your iron should be hot.  Now place down (but don’t press too hard) on the aluminum foil for 3-5 minutes.  Do this to both sides.

Be careful when you open up the aluminum, but your grilled cheese should be perfectly toasted and melted!

If this isn’t a college student recipe, I don’t know what is!  Ha…

BTW, I also made a sandwich with cheese, chicken, and fresh spinach.  Delicious!

And in case you’re worried, this does not ruin your iron as long as you make sure your sandwich is fully wrapped in aluminum foil.
