Pizza Grilled Cheese

Ingredients: Sliced bread, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni slices, marinara sauce


Lay out a slice of bread and spread a layer of marinara sauce. Add slices of mozzarella cheese and top it with pepperoni. Place another slice of bread on top. Cook it on a skillet until the cheese melts and the bread turns golden brown.

This twist combines the best of both worlds – the gooey delight of grilled cheese and the flavors of a pizza.

Apple and Cinnamon Grilled Cheese

Ingredients: sliced bread, cheddar cheese, thinly sliced apples, cinnamon


Place a slice of cheddar on a piece of bread. Layer thin apple slices on top and sprinkle some cinnamon. Cover with another slice of bread. Grill until the cheese is melted and the bread is crispy.

The combination of sweet apples, sharp cheddar, and a hint of cinnamon creates a delightful, sweet-savory taste that’s perfect for a unique grilled cheese experience.

Avocado and Pesto Grilled Cheese

Ingredients: Sliced bread, pesto, Swiss or Gouda cheese, mashed avocado


Spread mashed avocado on a slice of bread. Spread pesto on another slice. Place cheese on one side and combine both slices. Grill until the cheese melts and the bread is toasted.

This recipe introduces kids to the creamy goodness of avocado paired with the vibrant flavors of pesto.

Fruit and Nutella Grilled Cheese

Ingredients: Sliced bread, Nutella, sliced strawberries or bananas, marshmallows (optional)


Spread Nutella on a slice of bread. Layer sliced fruit and marshmallows if desired. Place another slice of bread on top. Grill until the Nutella melts and the bread is crispy.

This dessert-inspired grilled cheese is a delicious treat, perfect for an indulgent snack.
