If you are looking for a fun twist on a family favorite, try making a Unicorn Grilled Cheese sandwich. It's a neat way to make this classic recipe a little more colorful.

Grilled cheese sandwiches are pretty popular in my house. You can’t really go wrong with a sandwich full of melted cheese I suppose…. Anyways, since I make them so often (and often really is an understatement because I make grilled cheese sandwiches almost every single day), I recently decided to change things up by making a Unicorn Grilled Cheese.

As a general rule, neither of my boys are impressed by this whole unicorn food trend that’s all the rage these days, but I thought I could pull one over on them by making a unicorn grilled cheese. I was wrong. My youngest thought it was cool for about a half of a second, but quickly shrugged it off. The big one literally couldn’t have cared less and just ate his sandwich in one big bite like he normally does. Oh well, at least I thought they came out cool.
