You’ll need:

  • bread
  • shredded cheese (I used a mix of cheddar and mozzarella)
  • food coloring

Then,  add the cheese to your bread (which should be buttered and in the pan!) in a rainbow pattern, and fry it up as you would with an ordinary grilled cheese! shredded cheese rainbow

    A very artistic and creative recipe! This sandwich is a fantastic side dish or an extra pretty party food that kids will love. I think this rainbow grilled cheese is healthier over sugar candies and cupcakes served in a unicorn-themed party. We can also think of a low-fat cheese like feta, parmesan, reduced-fat cheddar or a light goat cheese that allows you to cut back on calories while keeping everything colorful and tasty.

    I agree with you. If I were venturing out in the cold for example, I’m not wearing cotton. This shirt would be more of a work horse – chopping wood, an afternoon bird hunting, or a day at work. go footwears
