Shortcuts

Its kind of hard to get 7 grilled cheeses ready at the same time. I don't have a griddle pan (or the space to store one). I started making grilled sandwiches in the oven. Construct the sandwiches and butter them like normal. Put on a pan and heat at 350 until golden brown. To get them even you might need to flip them.
I also saw Rachel Ray cook bacon in the oven. Just slap it on the pan and heat at about 375 until its as crisp as you want. This has worked very well for me. What a great tip. No more babysitting the bacon! And it comes out flat instead of ruffled. And your clothes don't smell like fried food...

Hi Kelly, not when your oven already looks like mine (just joking). I don't think we had any splatters...
