National Grilled Cheese Day with Al Dente Diva! - Bergen Moms Network


Grilled Cheese Dippers are a new spin on an old classic. Fun to make and even more fun to eat! Kids love this one because they get a chance to use the rolling pin. Very exciting stuff for a little chef. I used the traditional white bread with American cheese and ketchup. Please feel free to experiment with different breads, cheeses and dipping sauces, if you like. Here’s how to make them:

You’ll need:

White Bread

American Cheese


A rolling pin

A knife


  1. Adults- cut the crust off from the bread using a knife or have your little one gently tear it off.
  2. Roll the bread flat using a rolling pin.
  3. Add two slices of cheese leaving a little bread exposed on one end.






4.Tightly jelly roll the bread, pressing the exposed piece in, creating a seal. (Now every now and then I get an unruly piece of bread that just doesn’t want to stick. In that case, a little toothpick will do the trick. Just remember to remove it before serving).

5.Melt butter in a skillet & add the grilled cheese roll seam side down, then rotate to each side.

6.Remove them from the pan once they’re browned on all sides.

7.Let them cool for a little & enjoy with your favorite condiment.













These are even great on the colder months with soup as a dipping option. I hope you have fun making some memories creating something yummy with your kids. Enjoy, Bergen County ❤
