Mini- Grilled Cheese Skewers
Updated: Aug 27, 2020
This was inspired by a Tastemade YouTube video with Giant Grilled Cheese Skewers. It was so cute that I decided to make a mini-version for lunch.
Either the giant version in the Tastemade video or the mini-version would be good for lunch/dinner and also be a cute appetizer.
It's also a fun thing for Grilled Cheese Day. See more information on Grilled Cheese Day at the bottom of the post.
What I used:
- 1 piece of white bread
- 1 piece of Kraft American cheese
- Lollipop sticks (I didn't have skewers)
I cut a piece of bread into 9 pieces. I folded a piece of American cheese into several pieces as shown in the picture.
Then I just put them on a stick in alternating fashion. I put a pan on the stove on medium. I put the skewers in the pan and covered it with a pan lid.
Putting the pan lid over the skewers helped to create a warm environment to melt the cheese.
That's it! It's a fast and fun way to make & eat a grilled cheese. This was only 1 piece of bread and 1 piece of cheese. If you're making it for yourself for lunch, you may want to make 4 of 5 skewers. :)
Give it a try! We are good at this!
National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day
"National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day is observed annually on April 12th. Listed in a reader’s opinion poll, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are among one of the top comfort foods in the United States.
According to food historians, cooked bread and cheese is an ancient food, enjoyed across the world in many cultures. The United States modern version of the grilled cheese sandwich originated in the 1920s when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became easily available. Originally it was made as an open-faced sandwich.
United States government cookbooks describe Navy cooks broiling “American cheese filling sandwiches” during World War II.
Grilled cheese sandwiches are versatile thanks to the ability to mix and match cheeses, bread, and seasonings. Adding sauteed vegetables or herb-infused oils can elevate this simple comfort food to a whole other level."
