If you're on Instagram, you've probably seen the buzz-worthy rainbow grilled cheese oozing its Lisa Frank trendy goodness all over your feed. The original, from Kala Toast in Hong Kong, infuses the cheese with different types of herbs and vegetables, but because most of us have no knowledge of cheese making, we'll be taking another route to end up with an insane, colorful, grilled cheese fit for a unicorn or a lost boys buffet.

“A unique way to experience a classic recipe with a colorful twist thanks to the food dyes. While simple white bread will suffice I personally recommend a nice brioche loaf, it’s my favorite.” —Noah Velush-Rogers
2 slices bread
1/3 cup shredded white cheese
1 package neon food coloring
1 tablespoon salted butter
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Divide cheese evenly between 4 bowls.
Add a squirt of food coloring to 1 bowl and stir it with a fork until coated and colorful.
Repeat this step, using different colors, for each of the other bowls until you have your desired colors. Feel free to go a little wild here and combine colors that are analogous to each other.
Add colored cheese to piece of bread, in the form of individual lines so that the colors aren't overlapping. This will create the desired rainbow effect.
Once the lines of colored cheese take up the entire surface of the bread, add the other piece of bread on top, close sandwich, and butter the outside.
In a medium-sized pan, add buttered grilled cheese and cook for a few minutes until bread turns a golden brown and all the cheese has begun to melt.
Flip sandwich and repeat until both sides are golden brown and all the cheese has melted.
Remove from heat, cut against your original cheese lines, and serve.
- If you want to add some flavor to the grilled cheese, try using mayonnaise on the outside of the bread instead of butter. The mayo provides a delicious flavor and helps prevent the grilled cheese from sticking to the pan.
