grilled cheese

We are here to provide you with a daily dose of deliciousness… in the form of melted cheese. 

The wonderful people at Healthy Junk Food have created the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich, and it is MASSIVE.

We wanted to share the recipe with you, because it could genuinely change your life… for the better! 


What you'll need: 

  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • ​3 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups warm water 
  • 3 tablespoons lard, softened
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 6 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 20 slices cheddar cheese
  • Tomato soup
  • Milk
  • Butter

What you'll do:

1. In your mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water.

2. Stir in lard, salt and 2 cups of flour.

3. Stir in the remaining flour, a 1/2 a cup at a time, mixing in between adding flour.

4. Mix for approximately 8 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic.

5. Lightly oil a bowl and toss your dough into the oil, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for one hour or until doubled in size.

6. Deflate the dough, and divide it in half on a floured surface.

7. Press them out until they are the size of your square baking pans.

8. Grease the square baking pans and add dough, cover, and let rise for 40 minutes.

9. Bake for 30 minutes at 375°F or until top is golden brown.

10. Let your bread rest until it's cool, and carefully make your giant bread slices on both sides of each loaf.

11. Soften some butter and brush it on one side of your bread.

12. Grill on medium heat, adding as much cheese as you want.

13. Flip after the bottom is golden brown, for approximately 3-5 minutes.

14. Grill the other side until golden brown.

15. Finish in the oven if the cheese hasn't fully melted, to prevent the bread from over grilling.



When we first saw this red wine grilled cheese on Delish, we were met with utter confusion.

We're super foodies here in Shemazing! HQ, and even though red wine and cheese separately is like a match made in heaven, slopping both of them together just sounded super-weird.

We were probably thinking waaay too much into this, so last night we decided to try it for ourselves… and it was a treat.

It was gooey and creamy, all the while having that dark, delicious red wine taste linger with every bite. And it was pretty easy to make.

All you have to do is make a grilled cheese like you normally would, and then make a red wine reduction, which you can find a recipe for here.

Now, relax, pour yourself a glass of vino and eat that beautiful mess.


When it comes to cooking (or everything in life, really) we love a good shortcut – and there are so many genius hacks out there to help the cooking-challenged among us. 

But some hacks can be more successful than others, and some can turn out to be super dangerous too. 

Just take this sideways toaster shortcut that is supposed to make a mean grilled cheese. One woman tried it and it turned out to be a VERY terrifying ordeal. 

One unfortunate woman from the UK, Suzanna Dale, saw the hack online and decided to try it. But as you can see, her plan went disastrously wrong. 

DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME… !!! …Saw a tip on FB about turning your toaster on it's side for toasted cheese…..thought…

Posted by Suzanne Dale on Wednesday, 18 November 2015

Suzanne told the Manchester Evening News that her toaster burned for about 20 minutes. She also proceeded to throw the toaster out of her kitchen window. 

"They were real flames, it could be dangerous," she said. Lesson learned – DO NOT try this at home. 


Nothing beats a toasted cheese sandwich.

However, one of the disadvantages of having a grilled cheese sandwich, is that you have to eat it fresh. We all know what happens if your toasted sandwich has been sitting for more than a few minutes: it transforms from a melted cheesy dream into a cold lump.

Thankfully, a restaurant in San Francisco has come up with a solution to our grilled cheese woes. The Melt’s Smart Box!

The Melt’s amazing app enables you to pre-order your sandwich, and their Smart Box ensures it arrives to you as fresh as it came out of the toaster.

The Smart Box is an actual invention of NASA and VP of Operations, Greg Hernandez, explained how they came up with the idea: “What we realized is that if you maintained the temperature, and you had even airflow, and a way to get some of the moisture out of the product as it sat in the box, that it can hold a Melt for over 20 minutes and still meet temperature, moisture, and crispness guidelines.”

Sad thing about this genius invention, it’s only available Stateside, but fingers crossed it will arrive to our Irish shores soon.
