Ok  Wanna know the secret to making these fabulously colorful rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches?

Gel food coloring

Yup.

Now here are 2 ways of making them!

Method 1:  Paint Rainbow Bread

Mix drops of Gel food coloring with milk.  Watch in amazement as the milk turns super brightly colored.  Then, grab a cooking brush and paint your bread!

Method 2:  Make Rainbow Cheese


This time, we're going to dye our cheese rainbow colors.  Once again, grab your Gel food coloring and mix it with your favorite white cheese.  Only a few drops will do!

Then, sprinkle your rainbow cheese onto bread and pop it under the broiler....

and you've got yourself an open-faced rainbow grilled cheese sandwich!

(Note:  I tried making a traditional 2-bread grilled cheese sandwich with the rainbow cheese thinking that the rainbow colors would ooze out when I cut the bread.  Urmmm... they didn't.  I used uber cheap white bread that just remained stuck together.  So the open-faced sandwich definitely is the way to go if you want to showcase the colors.)

My son happens to love corn tortillas, so we made him an open-faced rainbow tortilla on the frying pan.
