Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits w/ Grilled Cheese

Today’s Menu: Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits w/ Grilled Cheese

 

 

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared a favorite of mine. I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Outside the weather isn’t quite as bad, but it was still about minus 1 this morning. It became sunny and a high of 21 degrees. I was able to get out a bit today. Cleared off both of snow and started both and let them run for a few minutes. Threw some salt out on part of the driveway that had ice on it. Later on caught up on a couple of movies that I recorded. For Dinner tonight its all Comfort Food! I prepared Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits w/ Grilled Cheese.

 

 

 

 

With the Weather still bad it just seemed like a perfect day for Soup and Grilled Cheese! For my Soup I heated up a can of Campbell’s Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits. Another easy to prepare item; just empty the contents of the can into a sauce pan and heat. Heated it on medium low heat, stirring often. I love a thick and hearty Soup and this one is perfect. Campbell’s Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits is the best there is, at least to me.

 

 

 

 

 

Then for my Grilled Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Layered 2 slices of the Sharp Cheddar on top. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a skillet, heated it up on medium heat and lightly coated it with a 1/2 pat of Butter. When the Butter was melted I added my sandwich. Grilled it on both sides until it was golden brown and the Cheese melted. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.
