Grilled Cheese Dippers
This recipe is from Laura’s cookbook, The Best Homemade Kids’ Lunches on the Planet.
- Yield: 1 1x
- Category: Lunch
- 2 pieces whole grain bread
- 2 slices (40 g) cheddar cheese
- Butter, for grilling
- Butter one side of both bread slices; flip over onto a flat surface. Place cheese on one slice of bread and cover with second slice.
- Place cheese sandwich, buttered side down, on a skillet over medium heat. Grill for 2-3 minutes, until cheese has begun to melt and bread is golden brown. Press down with a spatula, flip and grill the second side. Remove from pan onto a cutting board.
- Allow grilled sandwich to cool down for five minutes, cut sandwich into narrow strips, and pack in lunch container.
- Serve with tomato soup.
MOM Tip: Let the grilled sandwich cool down before slicing and packing it in the lunchbox. If you cut it too soon and pack it while it’s still hot, the bread will be soggy by lunchtime.
