Can you believe Halloween is in less than a week? I’ve been crafting away on my costume and I cannot wait to show you guys the outcome! This is the time of year when you can let your personality shine, act like kids, and get away with eating tons of delicious foods…even if they’re shaped like ghosts, bats, pumpkins and skulls!
I’m partnering up with Borden Cheese today, and bringing back one of my favorite childhood meals, THE GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH! 🙂 Both of my parents worked a lot when I was a kid, so easy recipes saved my mom a lot of time. When the months got colder, my mom always made grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. I never complained on grilled cheese night. It’s such a comfort food. My mom didn’t just serve boring square grilled cheese sandwiches. She always made them in fun shapes! Sometimes she’d let me pick out the cutters from the baking drawer and do them myself. I always liked when she surprised me though. I loved guessing the shapes.
I thought it would be a really fun idea to make Halloween shaped grilled cheese sandwiches! These are perfect for a last minute Halloween appetizer or a fun dinner idea for kids. They’re easy to make, quick, and inexpensive. You only need 3 ingredients… All you need: Borden Grilled Cheese Melts, Sliced Bread, Butter!
That’s right…only 3 ingredients! I’m sure most of you know how to make a grilled cheese sandwiches, but if you don’t, no worries! I got you.
HOW TO MAKE A GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH
- Heat a skillet to medium-high.
- Butter two slices of bread.
- Add one slice of bread to the pan with the butter side down.
- Top with Borden Grilled Cheese Melts (I like adding two slices)
- Top the Cheese layer with the second slice of bread with the butter side up.
- Let the sandwich cook for about one minute and then flip. (When the butter starts to melt on the top layer, it’s usually time to flip.)
It’s that easy! You’ll get the hang of it really fast. After you make all the grilled cheese sandwiches, pick out some cookie cutters for the fun shapes! I chose to make pumpkins, bats, ghosts, and crossbones skulls. Don’t throw away the scraps because they are just as tasty! You can cut them up and make croutons for salads or cut them up as dippers. I served the Halloween shaped grilled cheese sandwiches with a side of tomato soup, topped with tomato basil goat cheese. How fun are these? You can use this idea for any occasion. I used to make Mickey Mouse grilled cheese sandwiches for the kids I nannied for years ago. They loved it. Borden Cheese has so many products for all of your cheesy recipes!

I bought the Havarti cheese for my veggie omelets and it’s so yummy 🙂
