Ok Wanna know the secret to making these fabulously colorful rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches?
Gel food coloring!
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!
Aren't the colors just yummy?
Then, place your bread on a pan, and make grilled cheese sandwiches like you normally would. :) Ooh la la! You've got yourself a colorful and edible piece of art!
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.
:) I hope you have fun with this colorful food art project. And if you're looking for other fun food activities, here are
