Grilled Tomato Cream Cheese Sandwich | Kid Friendly Recipes

Sandwiches are a dream to make and kids love it too ! My elder one used to take a lot of sandwiches in her elementary school and this  she’s passed out her board exam with flying colours… How time flies !! 

From pestering her mom to pack sandwiches to making her own Open Sandwiches (from the eclectic Schezwan Cheese to Butter Chilli), it’s surely a treat to see her make these dishes for herself and her sister… 

Yet, I wanted to present this ultra simple yet delicious Tomato + Cream Cheese Sandwich that the little one loves and it comes together in under 15 mins.

    Cheese and Tomato is a classic combo..use it anywhere it will rock, and so will these sandwiches. The big sis is playing mom..ehe he ! how I love kids who take care of themselves and their siblings.

    Oh yum! This reminds me of the tomato mozarella sandwich we get at Tim Hortons here. I was wondering what was so special in it, but I ordered it because it fit my budget – hehe – and it was surprisingly delicious! This looks so good… Yeah, the girls have been messing up the kitchen and just yesterday broke one of my prop glasses in the process… hehe…

  4. Congratulations to the older one. Lovely sandwiches to brighten up the day.
