Cheese - and a Quickie Giveaway

I love cheese. Sometimes I think it must be in the DNA with my parents hailing from Wisconsin and all. Gooey on pizza, sprinkled over salads, a hunk of string cheese straight from the refrigerator - and a lovely bite of comfort food, a buttery, crispy-warm grilled cheese straight from the stove. Occasionally I change up the cheeses, or go for a little gourmet "glam" and add a thin slice of tomato to my grilled cheese sandwiches.

Plain ol' grilled cheese without the crust was a favorite of Daniel's early on. In true picky-eater fashion, he drifted from eating them for awhile. We recently tried Kraft American Singles, and an interesting thing happened. My carb-loving discriminating eater started peeling the bread apart to dig out the cheese! Not a total success, but I may start changing up the cheeses or breads, or cut them up into fun shapes or something to see if he will start eating them again.

Win It!
I have two coupons good for one free 12 ounce package of Kraft Singles (any variety). The expiration date is 3/31/2009, so this is going to be a quickie giveaway.

How to Enter:
1. Leave a comment on this post. If you feel inclined, tell me your favorite way to cook grilled cheese.
2. Follow this blog, or sign up via email or reader. (Please leave an additional comment telling me that you have done this.)

Two winners to be chosen the end of the day, Friday March 13th.

I actually prefer when my son makes me grilled cheese. There's just something about it that's so much more tasty when he makes it!

I love cheese.. like really love cheese. It's one of those things you just never get sick of...

My very unhealthy but tasty way to make grilled cheese.. is butter melted in the pan and spread on the bread... 2 pieces of cheese of course... fry it up until golden brown... if it burns, I give it to my husband and start over.

And then of course I get on the Wii Fit for 12 hours to burn off the meal, lol :)

Butter on both sides of bread, cheese in the middle, smack down on a nice hot cast iron skillet. Flip once. Nice and brown, crispy, and gooey cheese~

Mmmmmmmmm
Thanks for the chance to win.
I like to use the George Foreman and sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on the outside of the buttered cheese sandwich. It's nice when we have tomatoes on hand or provolone too.

I love to make grilled cheese with slices of ham inside. I butter both sides of the bread. First I add cheese, than ham, and then another slice of cheese. It tastes so buttery and yummy.

I love to make grilled cheese with colby-jack. When I was a kid, my Mom used straight colby & I called it "stretchy" cheese.

Thanks for the opportunity,

Love to add tuna to our grilled cheese!

Nicole said...

We add italian seasoning after applying the butter on the bread.

Mommyhood is Thankless said...

To be honest, I am not a fan of grilled cheese. I do however make what is cooked like a grilled cheese only with turkey.

I warm the turkey up then I prepare the sandwich similar to a grilled cheese, only I add the turkey and mustard. Pretty much a turkey melt.

My favorite way to cook grilled cheese is to prepare them like you would regularly and place them on a cookie sheet put in oven at about 350 and flip over when one side gets brown
