When I was a little girl my parents had to find interesting ways to feed our pack. My sisters and I all had very different tastes. However, come lunch time if they told us we were having bubble cheese, our day was made! This simple lunch had everything you could want cheese, bread, a pinch of salt and pepper, three midgets gazing into the oven window. OK, maybe you don’t need that last one, but it happened every time we made this. I find myself still gazing in and excitedly calling my own kids over to watch it bubble up.
This is not only a great lunch for a finicky eater, but also when you just haven’t quite made it to the grocery store yet. It has few ingredients and throws together at lightening speed. I hope you and your kids love the way the cheese grows and bubbles up as it cooks as much as we do.
Mayo ( optional)
salt and pepper
Set Oven to Broil
Take a slice of bread, if you would like now is the time to apply the thin layer of mayo.
If you hate mayo, then skip this and proceed getting a slice of cheese. Kraft slices works awesome for this , but you can also thin slice cheese off the block. once you have your slice, lay it on top of the bread.
salt and pepper lightly.
Slide in the oven and watch! As the cheese heats up it rises into bubbles all over the bread, you may get one big bubble or several little ones. When you see the edges of the bread are browning up and the cheese is bubbled up well, pull it out of the oven. The bubbles will collapse down. However, this was all great fun to watch because smaller bubbles would remain raised. Let it cool just a bit, as the oven on broil is incredibly hot. Serve up with your favorite lunch side and a drink. It makes for a fun lunch.
