ABC Grilled Cheese Mini Sandwiches
There’s no better way to incorporate snack time, healthy eating, fun and learning than making these delicious ABC mini grilled cheese sandwiches.
All you need is:
- Alphabet shaped cookie cutters (you can purchase these at your local arts and crafts store)
- Wheat bread slices
- Low fat cheese slices
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
While it is heating, place the cheese slices in between two wheat bread slices and set them on a cookie sheet.
Once the oven is fully heated, place the cookie sheet containing your sandwiches inside and let them cook until the cheese is completely melted.
Carefully remove the cookie sheet and allow the sandwiches to cool down, then have a blast cutting the sandwiches into squares and then into letters of the alphabet!
