Grilled cheese is such a classic and these Grilled Cheese Roll Ups are a fun twist on a classic sandwich!  My daughter loved these, and they were perfect for her to dip in her tomato soup!  This recipe is very simple and is perfect for a quick lunch or snack!

You can use cheese slices or real grated cheddar in these, I’ve tried it with both.  The real cheddar stays in the rolls better but both taste awesome!

The first time I tried these, I tried baking them because I thought it would make it easy to make lots…  but that didn’t work.  The cheese gets too melty and the bread doesn’t crisp enough.  A pan is the way to go with these!


Love Bacon?  I’ve made these with bacon too..  they’re AMAZING!

  1. My soon to be two year old loved these! She won’t eat regular squared grilled cheese, she has become very picky. Thanks for the great idea!! We dipped these in spagettios (:5 stars

  2. I made these for my picky toddler and they were a success! I took a bite too . Thank you so much for this great recipe!5 stars

  3. I’ve made these for years,however, I leave the crust on, roll up the bread with a slice of cheese inside and wrap it with bacon using toothpicks to hold the bacon on. Make certain to cover the crusts with the bacon. Then I broil them until browned on all sides, We call them Bacon rolls.
