Grilled Cheese Crescent Bites

Like most kids (and many adults), my children love grilled cheese sandwiches.  There's something about the ooey, cheesy goodness that just brings comfort and happiness to your kitchen, especially on a dreary day.  While my kids like eating the grilled cheese sandwiches I make, I'm not really comfortable letting them stand in front of a hot frying pan to make their own.  We decided to come up with a more kid-friendly version they could help make using another one of their favorite ingredients ~ crescent rolls!

Check out our awesome bite-sized version...

They're easy, yummy and perfect for kids and adults!

Here's what you need:

Don't you love two ingredient recipes?  Get yourself some KRAFT Singles (the best for grilled cheese making!) and a package of crescent rolls.  If you're lucky, you'll also be able to enlist the help of a talented young chef.

Here's what to do:

1.  Unwrap your cheese slices and pop open your can of crescent rolls.  (Anyone else get slightly freaked out when opening a can of rolls?  The anticipation of the "pop" when I push down on the container always makes me anxious ~ it's worse than opening champagne)

You'll use a half slice of cheese in each roll.  We folded them into halves, then quarters, and then in half again before putting it on the crescent roll.  

Baking together and a lesson in fractions! :)

2.  Next, begin rolling up your dough with the cheese inside.

3.  Put the rolls on a baking sheet and brush with melted butter.  (optional, but yummy).   You could also sprinkle with a little extra parmesan cheese, garlic salt, etc.

She loved this step!
4.  When they're all buttered up and ready to go, put them in the oven and bake as directed for the crescent rolls.  (We baked ours for about 13 minutes)

5.  Serve with some tomato soup and you're good to go!

We'll definitely be making these again, they were a huge hit with the kids.  My oldest daughter also made a great point while eating hers.  She said these would be "really good for a party if you have a lot of people because you could make a whole bunch of grilled cheeses at once and they would all be the right size."  I totally agree with her!

A quick cute story...  When she was younger, my daughter was convinced the sandwiches were called "Girl" Cheese and insisted that I needed to make something else for her brother instead.   Even though she now knows the correct pronunciation (and allows her brother to eat them), we still call them "Girl Cheese Sandwiches" as a family joke whenever I make them.  When we made this new version the other night and my son ate about 6 of them, we jokingly said we should call our new recipe "Boy Cheese Bites".

  1. Its a cute idea, and you photographed it beautifully. But seriously, that is a lot of processed food for a small kid. I think this needs to be marked "occasional" or "once in a blue moon." Have you read the labels?

    1. Oh hush, sanctimommy, it's common sense that this isn't an all day, every day meal.
