Grilled Cheese Roll Ups

Grilled-cheese-roll-ups

How about a rolled up grilled cheese sandwich?

Count me in!

These grilled cheese roll ups are fun, different, and can be customized to include your fave ingredients just like in a regular grilled cheese sandwich.

And these roll ups are perfect for dipping too.

Try dipping them in tomato soup…they’re sooo good.

You know what the hardest thing was for me when taking pictures of these yummies?

It was sooo hard not to eat them.

So a word of warning, you’ll for sure need to make extra for the cook when making these roll ups.  They disappear fast.

I first saw these on the site SheKnows and thought to myself….now why didn’t I think of that!  Such a great idea.

And the good news is, only 3 ingredients.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients…

Here’s how to make it.

Cut the crust off of each piece of bread (so not to waste the pieces of crust, they can be made into croutons).

Add the butter to the pan….

….if the pan is too small for all of the roll ups, reserve half of the butter to make a second batch.

With a pair of tongs, gently roll all sides of each roll up in the melted butter and lay the roll ups seam-side down in the pan.

Lightly brown each side of the roll up.

If the seam-side starts to open, use the tongs to squeeze the seam together.
