Grilled Cheese Rolls ~ A Fun Spin on an American Classic! A fun spin on an American Classic... ...Dip these simple Grilled Cheese Rolls in a bowl of piping hot tomato soup or ramekin of your favorite marinara ~ and I dare you ~ I dare you to eat just one! All you'll have to do is... cut the crusts off your bread, here I used a soft wheat.

Flatten your crustless bread squares with a rolling pin and then top with one piece of American Cheese (do not be tempted to use more cheese, in this case one is enough) Here I used fresh, deli sliced, Land O'Lakes yellow American Cheese - YUM! Roll your cheese squares up and then cook them in a pan with melted butter over medium heat (SEAM SIDE DOWN FIRST TO SECURE THEM) (rolling occasionally in the buttered pan to crisp all sides) until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and your Grilled Cheese Rolls are ready to enjoy! 8 Minute Mini Cinnamon Rolls. Mini Cinnamon Rolls are ready in under 10 minutes.

8 Minute Mini Cinnamon Rolls

Sweet and poppable, they disappear in minutes! We’ve got tons of Thanksgiving traditions in my family that I look forward to every year: Sipping mimosas while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Someone throwing a fit about losing at Scrabble, fueled by the aforementioned mimosas. The food. Pumpkin pie eaten while watching movies by the fire at night. Cinnamon rolls to start the day off right. Yes, before the mimosas, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, turkey and pie – there’s always a warm batch of cinnamon rolls waiting for my brothers and me as we trickle into my parent’s house from our respective neighborhoods.

They’re warm. They also kind of sit like a rock in your stomach for a couple hours afterwards.

Shrimp and tofu mini-burgers (tsukune) with red pepper sauce

What can I say - mini-burgers are just perfect for bentos: they taste good when they are cold, can be made in quantity, and usually freeze very well. This time it’s a shrimp and tofu version, adapted quite a bit from a recipe in a recent issue of Kyou no ryouri: Beginners (Today’s Cooking: Beginners) magazine. It’s best when made with fresh shrimp, but uncooked frozen shrimp is fine. You probably don’t want to be messing around with shrimp paste in the morning, so it can made it the night before (have some for dinner too - it’s great hot) or freeze a batch. The sweet-hot red pepper jam I’ve used as a sauce goes very well with it, but if you don’t want to go to the trouble of making the jam, use a sweet or hot bottled chili sauce.
