Regular grilled cheese sandwiches are flat. And that is that. But these are rolled. Just as easy, but so much more fun!
When we were growing up, my sister and I always begged for one of our favorites – grilled cheese sandwiches! My mom would melt some butter on the stove, my little sister and I would unwrap the cheese, and together we would sandwich it between two crustless slices of bread (in the days when you actually had to cut the crusts off!).
Then all of us would stand around the skillet as the sandwiches sizzled and cooked until the cheese just
started to ooze over. Then my mom would send us to the table with our sandwiches and a bowl of tomato soup, and we would immediately dip them in the tomato soup and dive in.
For my mom, I’m sure it was a really convenient 10-minute meal. For my sis and me, it was heaven!
Well for those of you who love grilled cheese and tomato soup just as much as I do, you have to try this fun new take from Care’s Kitchen
– Grilled Cheese ROLLS!
These are your typical grilled cheese sandwiches, just flattened out and formed into delicious little “rolls” that are even more perfect for dipping. Here’s how!
Start out with your favorite sandwich bread. Any kind will do!
Then use a rolling pin to flatten each slice.
If you’re anti-crusts, you can cut off the crusts (like I prefer!).
Then layer each piece of flattened bread with a piece of American cheese.
Carefully roll each piece of bread into a tight little roll.
Then melt a tablespoon or two of butter in a skillet over medium heat, and place each grilled cheese roll seam-side down in the skillet. Press down with a skillet to keep the roll from unraveling. Cook on all sides until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted.
Then get your extra-delicious “dipping sauce” ready – some Progresso tomato soup!
Serve immediately while that cheese is still warm and gooey.
Dunk away into your tomato soup.
