Rainbow Grilled Cheese Recipe
Last year, I was really committed to making all of our rainbow recipes healthy – from rainbow smoothies to rainbow spaghetti and fresh rainbow salsa – but this year, I’m indulging a little bit and having a bit more fun with our rainbow recipes. I still feel like this rainbow grilled cheese recipe was mostly healthy, using good quality cheese and whole grain bread, but yes – that cheese was rainbow colored.
My kids went crazy for this grilled cheese, and while it’s not about to be a staple in our house, it’s definitely a fun lunch option that makes a rainy day just a little bit more special. You can alternatively add one single color for a birthday, team colors for a game day, or a mix of princess colors – whatever suits the occasion!
One thing that was really fun was not cutting through the cheese fully and encouraging the kids to pull their sandwiches apart to reveal the fun colors inside – all of the kids who didn’t help me make the sandwiches were so shocked and delighted at the rainbow colors (and my little helper was super proud of her handiwork).
