Grilled Cheese Rolls Recipe

Jamie here!  While Kasey’s family has been doing a great job keeping processed foods out of their diet – mine hasn’t gone that route quite yet. In fact, my kids have been begging me this week to make them something they saw on Facebook called “Grilled Cheese Rolls” – and when I finally caved in and let them explain it to me, I admit I got a little excited.

SO, grilled cheese rolls are basically a carb + cheese dream team that roll around in a skilletful of sizzling butter until they resemble an egg roll.  But there’s nothing healthy inside like cabbage – just good ole’ American Cheese.  You even cut the crusts off – just to make good and certain nothing remotely healthy snuck in there.   And it’s delicious.  So. Cheesing. Delicious.

It takes a little longer to make than grilled cheese – but if you get the kids on board for cutting crusts and flattening bread – you can move it along like an assembly line with no problem.  Here’s a picture step-by-step, but keep scrolling for instructions:


Grilled Cheese Roll Recipe:

  1. Trim the crusts off your bread
  2. Flatten the bread using a rolling pin or a glass.  Place 1/2 Slice of Cheese on the bread and roll it up or fold it over twice (You can use a whole slice, but we made about 15 and didn’t want to use too much of our cheese.)
  3. Heat a couple tablespoons of butter/margarine on medium until it’s bubbly.  Place rollups seam-side down in butter until the seams are fried shut (I laid a butter knife over top of mine at the beginning to keep them still)
  4. Roll ever so often to get the whole thing golden brown.

  2. Flatten the bread using a rolling pin or a glass
  3. Lie 1/2 Slice of American Cheese on the flattened bread and carefully roll it a couple times. You may simply fold it twice if that's easier.
