Rainbow Grilled Cheese Instructions

Last week for St. Patrick's Day we made rainbow grilled cheese and I thought it was such a fun idea that could be used any time you want to make lunch more fun!  I had a few people ask how to make it, so I wanted to share the instructions here.

All you need to create this colourful meal is bread, butter, white cheese, and food colouring.

Start by grating your cheese (we used havarti mixed with mozarella) and separate into four bowls.

Add a few drops of food colouring to each bowl and mix.
(It won't colour your cheese shreds perfectly but that's okay)

Butter the outsides of your bread and place your cheese on the inside of the bread, lined up in rainbow stripes.

Grill your sandwich on a frying pan (if you use a sandwich maker that pinches the middle of your sandwich, you won't get as nice of a view of your rainbow cheese when your sandwich is in half).

Speaking of breaking your sandwich in half, I don't have a photo of a nice stringy cheese effect because I broke our sandwiches with my spatula- if you break your sandwich with a knife or anything like it, you'll get what we got. If you want a stringy cheese rainbow, just tear your sandwich instead. ;)

Happy rainbow lunching! :)

  1. What a great idea and a fun lunch! I wonder what other foods you can make with colored cheese (rainbow lasagna?). Thanks for sharing!

    1. That's an interesting thought... sounds like time to experiment! ;)

  2. The colour really makes it look like a fun snack to eat for kids

  3. I love this idea and I know my kids will too. It looks like we'll be having some fun with our food during Spring Break next week. Thanks for joining this weeks Creative K Kids' Tasty Tuesday. I can't wait to see what you share with us next week!
