Sometimes you just gotta get crazy for the kids. I decided to do just that with this Ultimate Kids Grilled Cheese sandwich that’s stuffed with baked mozzarella sticks and fried chicken tenders.
How do you defend something like this? It’s not green, it’s not fruit-filled and it’s definitely not the healthiest. But at least you’ll know what your meal is made of since it’s homemade. (For the fried chicken tenders, I used my recipe here. For the baked mozzarella sticks, I used my recipe from here.)
Aside from that, trust me, once you take a bite and your kids thank you with their big, cheesy-filled mouths, you won’t need to defend anything.
This grilled cheese is definitely getting filed under the “hero” food category. Which means, it’s probably going to be on repeat for awhile. I’m not complaining, and you won’t be either once you make this, so get to it!
