Cheese Toast 2 Ways: Recipes for Lunch at Home

Say cheese! Home for lunch has never tasted so delicious—or been so simple—with these two versatile cheese toast recipes. Using the same base ingredients for both variations, these lunch recipes are a cheesy, easy, family-pleasing meal.

Our Cheese Toast Roll-Ups are a fun, crust-free spin on a classic grilled cheese sandwich and designed for dunking. Kids will love the simplicity and the dippable roll-up sandwiches they can eat with their hands. For a more sophisticated crunch, parents can enjoy our grown-up Cheese Toast with Zucchini Ribbons without having to make two separate meals. Both cheese toast recipes are served on our multigrain bread, made from sprouted whole wheat, whole grains, and organic whole wheat flour. So, while this at-home lunch couldn’t be simpler, it’s a deliciously easy way to enjoy a serving of healthy whole grains, with 11 grams of whole grains per slice. Everyone wins!

Make this meal even easier by enlisting help from kids. Set little ones loose on the bread—they’ll love using the rolling pin to flatten their slices. Older kiddos can help with grilling by using a set of tongs to flip the roll-ups. This is a great, low-risk way to get junior chefs more comfortable with cooking on the stove.

What’s the fastest, freshest fruit or vegetable you have on hand? This meal is made to be served with simple sides, and pairs best with carrot sticks, apple slices, spring mix, or whatever healthy bites you’ve got in the fridge or fruit bowl.

Lunch is served—and it sounds like everyone is asking for cheese, please!

Cheese Toast Roll-ups

Cheese Toast Roll-ups on Sprouted Whole Grain Bread - a Recipe for Delicious at Home Lunch Fun for Kids!

ingredients:
  • 2 slices Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery Organic Multigrain bread
  • 2 tablespoons non-dairy buttery spread
  • 2 slices non-dairy cheddar-style cheese slices
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup (for dipping)
instructions:
  1. Use a rolling pin to flatten each slice of bread. (We cut the crusts off ours to make the roll-up a little easier.)
  2. Melt buttery spread in a frying pan over medium-high. While it melts, top bread with cheese slices, and tightly roll each slice.
  3. Place rolled slices seam-side down into the pan. Allow seam-side to become golden before grilling remaining sides of the roll-ups. Grill until all sides are golden and cheese is melted.
  4. Serve with ketchup for dipping, along with your kids’ favourite veggie sticks or apple slices.
tips:
  • Be sure to begin cooking seam-side first (seam-side down). This helps keep the roll-ups closed while they cook.
  • Cheese Toast Roll-Ups are also good dipped in tomato soup, non-dairy ranch dressing, salsa, or eaten straight-up!
Cheese Toast with Zucchini Ribbons

Sophisticated Sprouted Whole Grain Bread Cheese Toast Recipe for Grown-ups to Eat at Home for Lunch with Kids

ingredients:
instructions:
  1. Use a vegetable peeler to make zucchini ribbons and set aside. Toss ribbons in olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. If you like your cheese toast crunchy on both sides, toast lightly first. (Go lighter than you usually like it, as you’ll be double-toasting when you melt the cheese).
  3. Place toast on a cookie sheet (or the toaster baking tray if you’re using a toaster oven), and top toast with cheese slices. Move oven rack to the top of your oven and set your oven to broil. Watch cheese toast closely, removing from oven as soon as your cheese has melted. (Depending on your oven, this can take between 3-5 minutes—don’t walk away!).
  4. Plate cheese toast, top with zucchini ribbons, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with a simple side salad or slices of tomato.
tips:
  • Really short on time? Swap out the zucchini ribbons for thin slices of dill pickles as an even quicker option. (Drain pickle slices well and eat immediately after topping to keep cheese from getting soggy).
  • Add sophistication in seconds. If you have fresh herbs like chives, dill, or basil, snip some and sprinkle on your cheese toast for a burst of freshness.
