  • Toaster
  • Microwave safe plate


  • 4 Slices Bread
  • 2 Tablespoon Butter
  • 4 Slices cheddar cheese


Toast bread

  • Put bread in toaster and toast till golden. Spread butter on the toasted bread. Alternatively you can use an air fryer to toast the bread.,

Make the grilled cheese sandwich

  • when bread is toasted and buttered, place the bread buttered side down in a microwave safe plate.
  • Place cheese on one side of the bread, then cover with the other slice of bread.
  • Pop it into the microwave and nuke for 20 to 30 secs or until cheese is melted.
  • Serve with your favorite sides


  1. If toasting the bread in an air fryer, it’s best to butter the bread first. If using a toaster, I would recommend buttering the bread after toasting.
  2. Use a microwave safe plate.
  3. If kids are making this encourage the use safety gloves when getting the plate out of the microwave.
