How to Make Grilled Cheese Roll-Ups, the Lunch That’s Everything You’ve Ever Wanted

I'm going to need a batch of grilled cheese roll-ups ASAP.

Making the best grilled cheese can be difficult, but when done correctly, it becomes a work of art. This sandwich is a classic childhood lunch that we still eat into adulthood, and for good reason. They’re delicious! And now we’ve got an even better way to serve up our comfort food: grilled cheese roll-ups.

To make the roll-ups at home, follow this recipe from TikTok creator @somethingaboutsandwiches.

How to Make Grilled Cheese Roll-Ups

Ingredients

  • 8 slices soft bread
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Editor’s Tip: You can buy store-bought shredded cheese or shred your own. Just use this trick to grate the cheese!

Directions

Step 1: Prepare the bread

Take a single slice of the white bread and cut off the crusts. Then, take a rolling pin and flatten the bread into a thin piece. You want to avoid using a firm bread, like sourdough, because it will crack when you try to roll it. Using thick slices also keeps the bread from tearing.

Step 2: Add cheese and butter

Next, take your thin slice of white bread and grab the cheese. You’re more than welcome to use slices of cheese rather than shredded, but shredded tends to work better when rolling. Once you’ve spread a thin layer of cheese all over the bread, roll it up and brush melted butter on the edge to secure it shut.

Brush melted butter completely around the roll-up as well. You don’t want to forget that nice, golden outside.

Step 3: Cook the grilled cheese roll-ups

Place the roll-ups in a nonstick pan over low-medium heat. Rotate occasionally. Cook until the center melts and the outside becomes a golden brown (and crispy). All set!

How to Eat Grilled Cheese Roll-Ups

Of course, the obvious answer is to eat them all the time. But you can also pair them with our Best Ever Tomato Soup or ranch dressing. They’d also go wonderfully with fried eggs and bacon in the morning. However you like to eat them, we just know you’ll never look back!
