The Grilled Cheese Flipping Hack That Stops A Mess In The Pan
By Stacie Adams
For many, the most difficult aspect of grilled cheese is keeping the sandwich intact when you flip it. According to donnabonnana on TikTok, there's a surefire way to do so.
Instead of flipping the sandwich, place the spatula on the underside of the grilled cheese to lift it out of the pan, then take the pan and turn it upside down over the sandwich.
Next, flip the sandwich and the pan right side up and place the pan back on the burner. This keeps the sandwich stable and together before the cheese is fully melted.
Of course, this hack can only be used when making one grilled cheese at a time. Despite the limitations, people appear quite impressed with the modified technique.
Many commenters on TikTok find flipping the pan instead of the sandwich helpful, especially with add-ins like tomatoes, while others don't see the point of this technique.
Some were also concerned about butter or oil falling onto the open flame of the stovetop. However, if you butter the bread directly, there shouldn't be any in the pan.
