Use a Potato Peeler for Grating Cheese

I love cheese sandwiches with whatever other ingredient I choose, but I hate grating the cheese. I always miss the dish I'm aiming for or the bread slice and make a mess with bits of cheese all over the work top, which stick like glue when I'm trying to wipe them off.


So I came up with the idea of using a potato peeler. How easy is it ... very. The slices are thin, it's much quicker, no tiny bits flying off everywhere. Peeling cheese this way is also a doddle on home made pizza toppings.

For less than 2 dollars one can purchase at the super market a cheese grater with a bowl and lid attached. Mine keeps a lot of gunk off my counter tops. IKEA has them too but they are a little more expensive.

This is a great idea. I will definitely try it next time I make grilled cheese sandwiches.


I make them a lot and often have ended up grating my knuckles too. I'm glad you thought of this.
