Who Invents This Stuff?!

Every year for Christmas my step mom buys everyone something silly and fun.  Usually it's some sort of little game or something unique that you probably haven't seen before.  Last year we got pig poppers and Toastabags.  That's right, toasta.  Not toaster!  :)

We had a pig popper war with my family on Christmas and I think after that, sadly, the pigs have lived in our basement.  Sad life for them!  Toastabags have been in one of my kitchen drawers next to my foil, plastic wrap, parchment paper, baggies, etc.  To be honest, I almost threw them out a few times thinking they were silly but I felt too guilty throwing away a gift.

Finally (almost 10 months later), I decided to test them.  You guys, they are SO cool!

I used my Toastabags to make Carson's (FIRST EVER) grilled cheese.  This is going to get difficult, so pay attention....

1. Assemble your sandwich and insert into your Toastabags
2. Insert Toastabags into your toaster. 
3. Enjoy your warm and toasty sandwich!

Seriously, it's that easy!

I was a little skeptical but these things really work!  The cool part is that they're washable (even dishwasher safe) and you can re-use them up to 100 times!  I know grilled cheese is super easy to make but this allows me to have NO dirty dishes!  Bonus.  :)

Here is a close-up of how my grilled cheese turned out.  The left side of the bread isn't toasted as well because the type of bread I buy has larger slices and only fits one way into our toaster.  It doesn't fully toast outside of the Toastabags either.

Carson definitely approves!

Note: I was not compensated in any way for this post.  These are all my honest, personal opinions!  



  1. Okay, that's kind of awesome! So funny, too...toasta?! Lol.

  2. I don't even understand this! What's it made out of?

  3. I have definitely never heard of or seen this invention! I think your mom's present tradition is fun!
