Make It: Rainbow Grilled Cheese

Yay! It's the first day of Spring! To celebrate I wanted to bring you some rainbows. I mean we've had plenty of rain right? It's time for things to turn. And if I can't promise the type in the sky, we can do one better. How about tasty, cheesy, yummy ones? 

Gathering ingredients 

We actually tried this last week for an early St. Patrick's day celebration, but I think they are useful for so many had a bad day and need a pick me up. A colorful party nibble. A Unicorn party. Or just because. Did you grow up in a family that would occasionally color their pancakes? Steve is and has fond memories of it. I consider this the 2017 version of colored pancakes! 

Mixing in coloring

We picked up two packages of shredded white cheddar cheese (over 2 cups worth), and also bought sourdough bread. We already had the food coloring on hand. We decided on four different colors so we just separated the cheese into bowls and added the food coloring based on how vibrant we wanted the color (about 5-7 drops a bowl). 

Ready to make rainbows!

Then it is just a matter of arranging the grated cheese in a rainbow pattern on the bread and grilling it up. I found the only tricky part was making sure not to drop a bunch of colored cheese in the pan when setting up your sandwiches in the pan. 

Making rainbows!

Once you have the cheese in place it's just time to grill them up and enjoy! We had a bunch of fun cutting them partially and pulling them apart to play with the cheese! And of course you are left with colorful, cheesy sandwiches. So, here's to Spring and the sighting of many rainbows! Real or otherwise! 

Rainbow goodness! 


  1. Oh my gosh ... love this! You're so creative.

  2. That is the sweetest comment, thank you! (and it was at the encouragement of the girls...and I mean really, who doesn't love cheese?) :)
