Waffle iron toast

Almost all Norwegians I know own a waffle iron. Almost all Americans I know love a classic grilled cheese sandwich (especially the night/day after a good party). Let´s combine these two random trivia and eat! Well, first cook, then eat!

The fact that I was at a good friends´ bachelorette-party last night may, or may not, have something to do with this post…

These toasts have a few things going for them: you can use any bread you have laying around, even if it’s a little dry. It makes a miniscule dent in a poor student’s wallet. And you can go plain and just use cheese or you can jazz it up a bit according to your fridge content!

The essentials:

  • Bread
  • Cheese
  • Butter

The non-essentials:

  • Aioli
  • Pesto
  • Lunch meat (ham, sausage, chorizo, etc.)


Det essensielle:

  • Brød
  • Ost
  • Smør

Det mindre essensielle:

  • Aioli
  • Pesto
  • Kjøttpålegg (skinke, salami, chorizo, etc.)

Plug in your waffle iron.

For a classic grilled cheese sandwich, put a couple of slices of cheese between two slices of bread. Now butter the OUTSIDE of the sandwich (top and bottom) and put it in the waffle iron. I like my toast slightly pressed, so I squeeze the iron a bit for the first 10-15 seconds. Leave it until it is nice and toasted (a couple of minutes probably).

For a jazzy waffle iron toast, spread some aioli and/or pesto on the bread (I like to put aioli on the bottom and pesto on the top slice), then add a couple of slices of cheese and lunch meat. Again, butter the OUTSIDE of the sandwich and toast in the waffle iron.

To complete the cure: Serve with ice cold chocolate milk 😀
