Inspiring Young Chefs

Recently while at my parents’ house, I saw that my dad had purchased these …

This is a “Toasta Bag” used for toasting grilled cheese sandwiches in the toaster.  What?  I used it one day to make a sandwich at lunch.  It was such a neat little tool that I had to share it with you!  If you have a child who is learning to “cook,” but you can’t unleash them to use the stove yet, this is a perfect starter!

To make the sandwich,

  • Butter a piece of bread
  • Placed cheese on top
  • Put another piece of bread over the cheese
  • Butter both sides of the outside of the sandwich
  • Slip into the Bag
  • Pop into toaster until the sandwich is browned
  • Done!!!


My dad found this at Kroger.  I’m sure Walmart would carry them.  You wash the bag and reuse them over and over.  The box said you could reheat things like french fries in them, too.  We didn’t try that, but why not?  Get creative and do a

  • Toasted Peanut butter sandwich
  • Ham and Cheese
  • Turkey and Tomato
  • Grilled chicken and Cheese

The possibilities are endless.  Let your child get creative and become a chef in their own rights!

Has anyone else used these bags?  They’re genius!

Stay refreshed!

  1. Okay – now I seriously have to check our Canadian stores for that! My 4-yr old would love making his own sandwich. =)
