Grilled cheeses are pretty easy to make in most instances. They require just three simple ingredients: bread, cheese, and butter. Some would argue it’s hard to get this sandwich wrong, but a recent TikTok video may prove otherwise.

TikTok user DonnaBonnana shared a video of how she flips a grilled cheese the “right way.”

She said, “I was today years old when I learned how to flip a grilled cheese from my husband.”

Most people use a spatula and scoop the sandwich up from the bottom of the pan and flip it as quickly as possible to avoid catastrophe. I call this the “flip and pray” because half the time the top piece of bread slides right off the sandwich and leaves a big cheesy mess.

But Donna shared a new way of doing things. The “right way.” Instead of using the spatula to flip the sandwich over, she flips the whole pan over!

She uses the spatula to hold the sandwich in place and flips the pan to catch the other side.

The hack quickly went viral, receiving more than four million views and nearly half a million likes. From the looks of it, this hack is working quite well for Patrick and Donna.

While there are some who believe that this hack is an incredible game-changer, others are not so sure. Some people in the comments were concerned that hack is dangerous because if there is any oil or butter in the pan when it gets flipped, then it could quickly cause a kitchen fire, burn your hand, or both.
