Easy Toddler Meal | Broccoli and Cheese Grilled Sandwich Recipe

I’m always trying to find clever ways to sneak in a veggie into my children’s meals. Pinky really likes broccoli so I got a little more creative than just your typical grilled cheese sandwich and added brocolli to it. It was quick, EASY and a hit with my toddler.

Brocolli and Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich RecipeAll it takes is 4 ingredients that are probably sitting in your fridge right now!

Broccoli and Cheese Grilled Sandwich Recipe

Ingredients:

Bread (white, wheat or whatever you prefer!)
American Cheese
Broccoli (I used some leftover that I had steamed the night before)
Mayo
Butter or Margarine

Directions:

Tear American cheese into small pieces (this helps the cheese and broccoli melt together better) and place in a bowl. Slice broccoli into fine pieces and add to bowl with the American Cheese. Next, add a small dollup of Mayo and mix them all together. Spread your margerine or butter on your slices of bread. Then, spread the cheese and broccoli mixture on your bread. Now place your sandwich in a pan or on a panini grill until the bread is grilled to your liking (I like mine slightly burnt). Enjoy!

    Love this! I am always looking for ways to put more veggies into my toddler’s food, and I can’t believe I never thought of this. I will be trying it today- thanks for sharing!

      Your welcome! Depending on how much they like broccoli you can adjust the amount you put in. If you put in just a little they won’t even taste it :) Hope your tot loves it!

    I can’t wait to try this for my daughter! She loves grilled cheese, but hates vegetables. I’m sure she would eat this though!

  9. HC Montgomery says:

    Sounds healthy, quick and easy. My youngest boys like grilled cheese. I wonder if sneaking the broccoli into this sandwich would work on my 10 year old as it does on your toddler. He dislikes broccoli and there’s always a fight on when I serve it. The rest of us love broccoli, but that child is a veggie hater,especially broccoli or peas. Always looking for new ways to slip things past him.

    1. Brynn says:

      Hope it works! :)

    What a great idea. I never thought of adding broccoli to a grilled cheese sandwich. I think I will try it on my grandson and see if he will eat it. If he doesn’t, I will.

    1. Brynn says:

      Debbie, Good idea :) I enjoy them myself too!

  13. Janet W. says:

    I don’t think my grandson would even notice the broccoli! What a great recipe idea!

  14. shelly peterson says:

  16. Rachel Figueroa says:
