I love a good grilled cheese sandwich. I look forward to eating one every time fall season hits. If layers of gooey cheese sandwiched between two buttery and grilled pieces of bread isn’t decadent, then I don’t know what is. It’s a sandwich that is universally loved by grown-ups and kids dig them, too!
If you or your kids are grilled-cheese crazy as I am, then you’ll love this fun recipe I’m going to share with you today. This rainbow-colored grilled cheese sandwich recipe is a fun twist on the classic grilled cheese sandwich and it’s super easy to make. It should take no more than 10 minutes to make and everything you need is listed below!
Rainbow-Colored Grilled Cheese Sandwich
- 2 slices of bread (of your choice)
- Grated mozzarella cheese
- Liquid of gel food coloring (of your choice)
- Sprinkles (for garnish)
Step 1. Toast one side of two slices of bread.
Step 2. Divide grated mozzarella cheese into four bowls, stir in liquid or gel food colouring of your choice (Note: Start with 2 cups of grated mozzarella cheese and add more or less depending on the amount of gooeyness you want).
Step 3. Melt in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Step 4. Place a slice of the bread, toasted side down, on a plate and spread the gooey cheese in four stripes down the bread.
Step 5. Pop the other slice on top, toast side up.
Step 6. Spread a little butter over the toast top, pop back under the grill to melt, add sprinkles, pull apart and enjoy!
Once the grilled cheese sandwich is done, all you need now is tomato soup because… what’s a grilled cheese sandwich without tomato soup? Soup and sandwich always make the best duo and I always serve them on this soup and sandwich ceramic tray duo so the whole meal is on one plate. I bought it from Uncommon Goods first as a gift and then I bought a set for the house. It’s lightweight and easy to carry to the couch when we want to watch a movie while eating.
You can also turn this to a lunch-friendly recipe for your kids. These rainbow-colored grilled cheese sandwiches can be easily stored in a regular sandwich container and its tomato soup counterpart can be stored in a thermos for the kids to take to school.
