Cinnamon Roll Grilled Cheese Sandwich

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

One day I dreamed that I could bring together a cinnamon roll and a grilled cheese sandwich. The resulting Frankenbreakfast was everything I dreamed it would be, and more.

Dense, eggy challah bread was an excellent choice to duplicate the sweetness and pillowy texture of a cinnamon roll. And oh, the filling! Warm, sweet, gooey cinnamon perfection. The Neufchatel gave it a lovely tang, like cream cheese frosting. And the brown sugar melted right into the cheese for a silky smooth consistency.

Is it breakfast? Is it dessert? Does it matter? Make. This. Sandwich.
