Grilled Cheese Rolls | My Little Gourmet

Last week I shared our 10-minute Tomato Soup with you all and as promised, this week I’m sharing the recipe (if you can even call it one) for the grilled cheese rolls we had with the soup. The roll-ups are done in under 10 minutes and the perfect addition to any soup or a great snack on their own.

At first I had some issues with the rolls not staying rolled up. It’s best if you press down on the rolls (with a spatula or something flat) and start with the seam-side down in the pan. Be sure to wait until the seam is sealed before starting to to rotate the rolls and brown the other sides. Once I made sure to do this, my only issue was making them as quickly as Arik was eating them, but this is an issue I’ve become accustomed to. 🙂

  4. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat.
  5. Place the rolls, seam-side down, in the pan and press down so that they don't unravel.

  1. These are huge in the South Island of New Zealand. We often add powdered onion soup to the mix, as well as some finely diced/grated brown onion and evaporated milk to the grated cheese to make a spread/paste. They are super yummy!

  2. I’ve seen similar recipes like this, but I REALLY appreciate your tips, which is the first I’m seeing. I can’t wait to make these for my little nephews. 🙂

  3. These look great Laura, easy to do as well. But please can you tell me why they are called Grilled Cheese Rolls when they are actually fried? Thanks

    • Hi Katie, I called these grilled cheese rolls because they are exactly like the American classic grilled cheese sandwich, just rolled instead. Now as to why the grilled cheese sandwich is called such, I’m not sure, but I think it used to be grilled and the name just stuck…but don’t quote me on that. 🙂
