  • As in directly on the eye? NO
    Use a skillet.

  • No, if you have the coil-type electric burners, the butter will burn, the cheese can melt all over, and you'll have a nasty mess.

    If you have a flat-top stove I bet you could if the heat was on low though.

  • ya, you can do it on low but you'll have melted cheese all over the place & it will burn & your kitchen will get all smokey. Do you not have a pan to throw it in?

  • It's flat. And I'm babysitting and I can't find a skillet.

  • I would never do it - especially in someone else's kitchen. Those flat top stoves are notoriously hard to clean.

  • Try putting it in the toaster over - WITH NO BUTTER.

  • I don't think it would be worth the mess, just toast the bread and put the cheese in..........

  • Do open faced cheese sandwitches in the oven under the broiler

  • Do it in the oven then. Put the oven on broil - make it open faced - broil on a cookie sheet with the door slightly opened so you can watch it.
