Disney-fy Your Grilled Cheese with some Fun Colors

Are you trying to figure out how to mix up lunches now that the kids are home more? Consider adding some Disney fun to your typical grilled cheese with this Minnie inspired options. Try different colors to make it fun for your kid.


  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • Minnie Mouse Food Cutter Set
  • Butter
  • Shredded mozzarella
  • Shredded cheddar
  • 1 slice cheddar cheese
  • Pink and purple food coloring



  1.  First, make Minnie’s bow and flower. For the bow, add mozzarella and purple dye to a microwave-safe bowl. Mix until dyed then melt in the microwave. Roll the cheese into a ball, then place on parchment paper and use a spoon to flatten it. Next, cut it out with the bow cutter. Let it set.

2.  Cut a piece of cheddar cheese with the flower cutter.

3. Now, make the grilled cheese. Use the Minnie Mouse food cutter to cut two pieces of sourdough bread. Then, butter one side of each slice.

4.  Separate the mozzarella into three bowls. Add pink food coloring to one and purple to another. Stir to combine.

5. Set one piece of the bread, butter-side down, on a pan. Lay your cheeses in horizontal rows (plain cheddar, pink mozzarella, plain mozzarella, and purple mozzarella).

6.  Place your other piece of bread on top, butter-side up, and cook on low heat. Once partly melted, flip sandwich and completely cook on the other side.

7. Add the bow and flower to Minnie and you’re done!

Mix it up with different colors or even a Mickey! This is a great way to add some magic to the lunch rotation.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
