Guys, it’s finally here – it’s National Grilled Cheese Month!
Yes, it’s the best month of the year. And to celebrate, I share with you my absolute favorite and easiest grilled cheese recipe of all time.
It’s a grilled cheese that’s literally rolled up with good quality Wisconsin cheddar cheese slices, then grilled in melted butter until you get that beautiful golden brown crust. From there, these roll-ups work as the perfect dunkers into your tomato soup.
You know very well you can’t have any kind of grilled cheese without a piping hot bowl of tomato soup, right?
Best of all, YOU can also celebrate this fabulous month by entering the 2016 Grilled Cheese Recipe Showdown!
All you have to do is submit your best original grilled cheese recipe for your chance to win $15,000. (Yes, $15,000.) The contest is open through May 15, and you can enter as many recipes as you would like!
So what are you waiting for? Hurry up and get cooking!

All you need is 3 ingredients for these epic roll-ups – good quality Wisconsin cheddar cheese, bread and butter. Oh and tomato soup for dipping purposes – DUH!
Prep time 10 minutes
Cook time 10 minutes
Total time 20 minutes
Servings: 8 roll-ups
8 slices white bread*, crusts trimmed
8 slices Wisconsin cheddar cheese*
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter
Using a rolling pin, flatten bread slices to 1/4-inch thickness. Place cheese slices on top of each slice of bread, rolling up tightly.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, add roll-ups to the skillet, cooking until all sides are golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 3-4 minutes, adding more butter if needed. Serve immediately.
*Whole wheat or whole grain bread can be substituted.
*Different cheeses can also be used, such as Wisconsin Monterey jack, Swiss and mozzarella.
