Grilled Cheese Rolls25 Comments


Please bear with me as my site undergoes some construction, I promise it will be very pretty soon! You may have noticed that I made the big switch from Blogger to WordPress so I am still learning the lay of the land over here. The new site will be very user friendly and I am so excited to share it with you soon!

It is a little morbid to think about, but if you had to decide right now, what would be your very last meal on Earth? As Blair and I drove to the Shake Shack a few weekends ago, I claimed mine would definitely be a cheeseburger and milkshake. This week I decided that yes that would be a delicious final meal, but can you really beat a grilled cheese and tomato soup? Grilled cheese has been one of my absolute favorite things to eat as a youngster and also as an adult. It also is dear to my heart because whenever my Mom would go away and Dad was in charge, we would have grilled cheeses for dinner. I honestly think one of the reasons why I hate packing lunches for work every day is because I can’t pack a grilled cheese. Have I convinced you how much I love them yet?

Of course, grilled cheese is not wonderful in my book unless accompanied by tomato soup. Don’t you worry, I have a recipe coming for you on Wednesday. Last year, I saw this idea of doing grilled cheese rolls–genius I tell you! So much better for dunking into that tomato soup. They are super easy to make and are probably going to be my go to for future grilled cheeses. If you are a grilled cheese lover like myself, try these soon, I bet your kids will love them too!

Grilled Cheese Rolls
4 slices wheat or white bread, crusts removed
4 slices American or cheddar cheese

What you’ll do:
After removing the crusts from the bread, take a rolling pin and slightly flatten the slices of bread. Add a slice (or two) of the cheese, carefully roll the bread and place seam side down. Heat some butter in a skillet and place the rolls seam side down. This will secure them so they stayed in the rolled shape. Once the seam is sealed, roll around in the melted butter until all sides are golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

    Omg what an awesome idea! i cant believe i never thought of that. One of my favorite things to eat!

  3. Ana says:

    Do you put this into the oven to cook? or pan?

    • Krissy says:

      As mentioned in the recipe, I did mine in a skillet, but I bet baking them in the oven might work as well.

      • Kelly says:

        Yes, you could definitely do in the oven. I use the bread around asparagus, dip in melted garlic butter and bake them at 350 for about 10-15 minutes. would work filled with cheese as well.

  7. Rochelle says:

    What do you do with the ends of the roll??

    • Krissy says:

      Do you mean the ends of the bread? You could process them for breadcrumbs, I just threw them out.

      • Sharon says:

        No, I think she meant the ends of the roll…like how do you keep the cheese from spilling out the ends? These look awesome, I will definitely try this next time!

    Do you think it could also work to put in a finger sized stick of cheddar or other block cheese?

    I think these would be yummy with mustard.

  18. Dottie says:

    Try the Cheese roll ups with 6″ flour tortillas so the ends can be folded up and the cheese don’t leak out the ends in the pan. YUM !!
