This Veggie Grilled Cheese Sandwich is a tasty kids meal to share with only four ingredients, including a veggie that fits perfectly in. It has more nourishment in the filling and simply takes a few minutes to prepare. This is a fantastically simple dish!


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 slices sourdough bread (or whole grain)
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons mashed sweet potato


  1. Set a nonstick or cast iron pan over medium heat and melt the butter.
  2. On one piece of toast, spread the sweet potato. Put the cheese on top of the other. Place two slices of bread, toppings side up, on a prepared baking sheet. Swirl the bread gently to coat it with butter. Cook for approximately 3 minutes.
  3. Place the sandwich’s two halves together and press down slightly with a spatula. Cook for 3-4 minutes more, flipping as required, until both sides are golden brown.
  4. Remove the sandwich from the pan and cut it in half, into sticks (excellent for toddlers), or dice it into small pieces (good for older babies).


Use a smooth vegetable puree like Mashed Sweet Potato.

Use carrot puree, mashed butternut squash, broccoli puree, or finely minced broccoli to experiment with different flavors.

I normally melt the butter in the pan, but you could also spread it on both slices of bread.
