Ricecookers Rock (Around the Croque)

This post is for my sweetie friends Heidi (proud owner of a new ricecooker) and Sassy Jen (for challenging me)! :)

I love my ricecooker! Why? Mmm, how many reasons would you like..? Go look at my previous post Scrambled Saturday if you want a run down of what these dinky machines can do to make your life easier... Sassy Jen commented that it was possible to make a grilled cheese sandwich (toastie, as we say in the UK, croque monsieur, as they say in France) in a ricecooker. So I had just had to test that theory, didn't I? ;)

Switch on your ricecooker, open the lid and make your sandwich while the pot heats up.

Take two slices of bread and pop in your filling (I did a classic ham and cheese). Butter the outside of the sandwich. Place in the ricecooker pot and - important part here - leave the lid open! Unless, of course, you want a soggy sarnie? ;)

Set your (Flylady) timer for 5 minutes and go declutter a kitchen drawer or wipe down one shelf of your fridge... When the 5 minutes is over, flip the sandwich over. Set your timer for another 5 minutes and go clean the next shelf of that fridge! :)

When the timer says 'ding' it's luuuuuuunchtime! :) Bon appétit! I have to say that it was delish, right down to the last buttery crumb...

Hope you have a simply (effortless) super Saturday! :)
