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:
- Trim the crusts off your bread
- 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.)
- 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)
- Roll ever so often to get the whole thing golden brown.
- Any kind of Bread
- Cheese (American works best)
- Trim the crusts off the bread (save them for French Toast Fries - I'll post that shortly!)
- Flatten the bread using a rolling pin or a glass
- 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.
- In a skillet, melt a couple tablespoons of butter/margarine
- Place the rolls in the skillet, seam side down and press on them for a moment until it fries and effectively seals shut.
- Turn every once in awhile until the whole roll is golden brown
- Serve alone or to accompany soup
