Grilled cheese is a traditional kid food favorite, and today we’re making it even more kid friendly with these Grilled Cheese Dippers! My kids love anything they can dip into soups and sauces, and it’s a great lunch for picky eaters. This is another “no printable needed” kind of recipe, because it’s all in the technique. Let’s get started!
- American, cheddar, or provolone cheese
- Butter or margarine
- Tomato soup
I absolutely love pre-made tomato soup. It’s a fantastic base for a quick meal, and this brand is one of my favorites because it doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup. However, feel free to use whatever brand of tomato soup your family loves, or even make it from scratch! Just get that soup heating on the stove and ready to go before we make our dippers.
Pop two slices of bread on your counter, and spread one side of each slice with a thin layer of butter.
I like to place the two slices of bread butter sides together while we prep all the sandwiches. Unwrap two slices of american cheese, or make generous slices of any other cheese and set them onto the unbuttered side of the bread. Set the butter side of the bread down into a pan pre-heated to medium heat. Make sure your cheese is centered on top.
Top it with the other slice of bread, with that butter side up. Cook until the bottom side is lightly brown and crispy, then flip it over and cook the other side until it’s toasted as well. Take it out of the pan and let it cool down so the cheese firms up a bit, and then take a sharp knife and slice it into thin slices. 4 or 5 slices should be perfect depending on the size of the bread you used.
Pour some soup into to a little dish, put your dippers on a plate, and you’re ready to serve!
Making food interactive is a great way to get picky eaters more excited about meal time, and these Grilled Cheese Dippers are perfect for that! I hope your kids love them!
