Balance cans on top of a second skillet inside the first skillet? I don't think so.

For the best tasting grilled cheese sandwich, use whole wheat bread and put half of a tablespoon on one side of each slice. Place a sluce of provolone cheese between the bread and put a few slices of tomato inside and cook in in a pan until its crispy on the outside. Serve with something like tomato soup or even mariara sauce and that's it! To make it healthier make it how I make it, which just means don't use butter and just cook it on the pan, it won't stick.

I make a hopped up modified version of my "Burnt Cheese". Butter a couple of slices of whole wheat and I've used one slice of pumpernickel and a slice of hearty rye too. Add a couple slices of "Oven Roasted Turkey" a slice of whatever cheese you please, then I heap on a generous pile of sauerkraut and grill that baby on both sides. You could even add some "Thousand Island" dressing. I guess you could call it a "Grilled Turkey Reuben" I've been know to butter the bread and sprinkle garlic salt, onion powder and parmesan cheese and fold all that together to make a paste, it's like a "Grilled Turkey Reuben" on garlic bread. Bon Appetit Adios n' Hasta La Bye Bye! L.D.

Simply try toasting whatever bread u choose, before u put on the cheese, and then place in the oven at about 350 degrees for a few minutes, to melt the cheese...doing it "open face" allows the cheese (I use sharp cheddar) to melt and u can turn on the broiler for a few seconds if u like the cheese to become "grilled"...Just make sure to watch the oven, as the broiler can scorch your sandwich in a matter of seconds!! Lol!!

I love adding thin slices of tomato!! Grill it and the tomatoes get hot and what a tasty treat!! I use butter, rather then do the pan thing I would rather buy a panni maker, or I used to have a hot sandwich maker that did grill cheese and any other wanted hot sandwich:)
