Start by dying your cheese (see the note section after the step-by-step instructions). Then add them in a pattern on top of the bread. You can line up the cheese any way you want. I used a traditional dark green/light green/orange/yellow and white.

How do you dye cheese?

Most of us have never dyed cheese before, but we can all be pros with a couple of ingredients. Here is my method.

  • Decide what colors you which to dye your cheese, and then make divide the cheese into the appropriate bowls (if you want 5 colors, divide the cheese into 5 different bowls)
  • Add 1 drop of food coloring to each bowl.
  • Mix well.
  • Let dry for a couple of minutes before using it, so the color has a chance to set.
