“I saw these on an episode of "Behind The Bash" on Food Network. It's really just a different way of making the grilled cheese that we all know and love, but in miniature it is just SO cute. I served these at my daughter's first birthday party. You will need 4 mini loaf pans to bake the bread for these in, unless your grocery store sells miniature loaves of bread. :) Cook time does not include the time it takes to thaw and bake the bread, since different brands and methods have different times.”
12 mini sandwiches
