This recipe is simple, but it's such a fun twist on traditional melted cheese sandwiches. They make the perfect kid-friendly lunch or snack and with minimal ingredients, you can quickly churn out a bunch during the morning chaos!
Technique tip: Using a rolling pin helps to really flatten the bread and makes rolling up your dipper much easier. If you don't have a rolling pin, you can also use a can or wine bottle.
Swap option: You can experiment with different cheeses, or you can add turkey or ham for extra protein.
