A Magical Rainbow Grilled Cheese Recipe

Inside: The yummiest rainbow grilled cheese recipe and more rainbow fun!

I’m so excited to share how to make this rainbow grilled cheese today! To cheer up an otherwise dreary week we’ve been focusing all our eyes on rainbows around here… there have been double rainbows almost every day in the sky and in the studio they seem to be popping up everywhere. Last year we shared fun rainbow food ideas and I’m thrilled to finally have a chance to talk it this rainbow grilled cheese idea through more fully right below. These rainbow photos by Kirsty Begg just scream brightness in the midst of the last, long days of winter we are having.

Some of our rainbow inspired favorites

What’s your favorite way to make a rainbow? I bet after trying this rainbow grilled cheese you’ll have a new favorite. But first, a few awesome rainbows you can grab and put around the house, or on your body today to brighten up THE EVERYTHING:

Rainbow tassels make for the cutest clutch!

If you have a ton of stuff, this rainbow purse is big, roomy, and the best amount of bright.

With all this snow, I just cannot wait to wear some sandals. Make these your go-to.

Sometimes, wearing a full rainbow seems a little daring, but this dress makes it so easy. I am loving this chic look.

For a more casual look, pair this cute tee with a pair of jeans, and while you’re at it use your rainbow grilled cheese the perfect accessory!

This dress is more fancy and great for a night out, and there is still a rainbow in it– LOVE!

Add a splash of color to your home with this elephant trinket. :)

Whether it is for the playroom or the living room, this area rug is perfect.

Here is another clutch that your daughter will love, and I won’t judge you if you sneak into her closet to steal it for yourself.

For toys or blankets or even if they just sit there looking cute, these rainbow baskets are a must-have.

And of course, an accent throw pillow is never a bad option. AND, there are donuts on it- yum!

Add a little extra rainbow to your life with this phone case.

Summer is coming! And with that, I leave you with this lovely unicorn rainbow raft.

Colorful lights are always a fun addition to the home!

This one is for the little ones that say, “I want to be a unicorn when I grow up!”

This modern rainbow art print is another great addition for the home and it is sure to brighten up your living room.

Or, try this woven wall hanging.

And at the end of the night, sit down with your much-needed glass of wine using these fun, rainbow glasses. Plus they pair perfectly with our rainbow grilled cheese!
