My method: grill on. Bread under. Slice cheese while one side browns. When side is brown, remove and flip over. Add cheese to non-brown side. Back under grill until cheese is bubbling. Eat.

DH's method: bread in toaster. Remove when browned. BUTTER one side shock add cheese to buttered side. Grill cheese side. Eat.

I think the toaster part and buttering is completely unnecessary. AIBU?

Your DH is correct.

Eragonsegg Sun 19-Feb-17 17:28:44

Yanbu only one side should be toasted and butter is unnecessary!

Getnakedorgohome Sun 19-Feb-17 17:29:04

I would do it the same way as your dh...

I put cheese on bread and in the oven. Doesn't need to be more complicated than that O.o

raeray Sun 19-Feb-17 17:29:08

I agree with your method OP!
Well that's how I make mine anyway grin

PurpleDaisies Sun 19-Feb-17 17:29:24

I agree with you. Dh makes it the same way as yours, minus the butter.

MrsStinkey Sun 19-Feb-17 17:29:29

You're both BU.
Grate cheese, place on untoasted bread under the grill with some lea and perrins if you have it and leave until the cheese is all bubbly. grin

You're right, DH is wrong, so so wrong.

I do it your way, but add shittons of Worcester sauce too! My Canadian family buttered both sides of each piece of bread then put the sandwich together and fried it!

I'm not loving the idea of toaster cheese on toast.

tatty1010 Sun 19-Feb-17 17:30:02

I do it your way OP but partner does it similar to your DHs!
But I have to say there is nothing unreasonable about cheese on toast whichever way its made grin

Bantanddec Sun 19-Feb-17 17:30:08

You put cheese on the untoasted side?? Doesn't it go soggy?

TyneTeas Sun 19-Feb-17 17:30:10

I agree with dh except about buttering it.

Imbroglio Sun 19-Feb-17 17:30:14

Where is the Worcestershire Sauce?

justdontevenfuckingstart Sun 19-Feb-17 17:30:34

Both sides have to be toasted and the cheese side buttered.

But more importantly where is the Lea & Perrins?

Bread in toaster, cheese on one side, under grill. Remove, spread on thin layer of ketchup.

DeterminedToChange Sun 19-Feb-17 17:30:54

His way makes the toast too hard and oily.

Calaisienne Sun 19-Feb-17 17:31:03

I have mine the same as you, DP same as your DH, but, to use the toaster AND then heat up the grill just to cook the cheese is madness! What a waste of money.

Screwinthetuna Sun 19-Feb-17 17:31:20

Your way...why add butter?

My toaster will toast just one side of the bread, so I do that, then put the cheese on the untoasted side and grill it. If you toast both sides, the edges of the toast get burnt while the cheese is toasting - so if my toaster didn't have the one-side option, I would either toast one side under the grill like you do, or I'd settle for burnt edges.

You are not wrong about the butter - cheese on toast definitely doesn't need butter!

BadKnee Sun 19-Feb-17 17:31:28

Agree with your DH = otherwise it isn't cheese on toast. If the bread stays soft on the non-toasted side it is horrible. And without butter - all dry!!!

Scribblegirl Sun 19-Feb-17 17:32:47

Agree with your DH, out bread is usually in the freezer so needs toasting anyway!

Surreyblah Sun 19-Feb-17 17:33:54

I would do what your DH did without the butter, and prefer to grate the cheese.

PurpleDaisies Sun 19-Feb-17 17:33:56

Anyone else got a craving for cheese on toast now?

Pud2 Sun 19-Feb-17 17:34:13

DH does it right!
