A cheese sandwich is a basic sandwich made generally with one or more varieties of cheese on any sort of bread, such as flat bread or whole wheat bread. In addition to the cheese, it may also include spreads such as butter or mayonnaise.

Cheese sandwiches can be uncooked, or grilled so that the bread toasts and the cheese melts (a dish referred to as a grilled cheese sandwich or simply grilled cheese). A grilled cheese is often heated by placing the buttered slices of bread, with the cheese between the slices, on a frying pan or griddle.

Another form of cooked cheese sandwich is the cheese toastie or simply toastie – a dish, particularly popular in the United Kingdom that is prepared by either baking or grilling a cheese sandwich in an oven or using a pie iron in order to toast the bread and melt the cheese. Cheddar cheese is by far the most common cheese used in this method, and butter is almost never used. It is usually served as a snack, or as a (usually a lunchtime) meal often with a side of salad.

Cheese sandwiches with added meat (such as ham, bacon, turkey and other meats) are generally referred to by more specific names. If ham is included, for example, the result is a “ham and cheese sandwich”. Grilled cheese sandwiches are often served with soup, usually tomato, in the United States, and served as a whole meal in the United States and other countries.

 

 

Cooked bread and cheese is an ancient food, according to food historians, popular across the world in many cultures; evidence indicates that in the U.S., the modern version of the grilled cheese sandwich originated in the 1920s when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became easily available.The so-called cheese dream became popular in the United States of America during the Great Depression.

U.S. government cookbooks describe Navy cooks broiling “American cheese filling sandwiches” during World War II. Many versions of the grilled cheese sandwich can now be found on restaurant menus across the United States and internationally.

 
Uncooked cheese sandwiches simply require assembly of the cheese slices on the bread, along with any additions and condiments.

A grilled cheese sandwich is assembled and then heated until the bread crisps and the cheese melts, sometimes combined with an additional ingredient such as peppers, tomatoes or onions. Several different methods of heating the sandwich are used, depending on the region and personal preference. Common methods include being cooked on a griddle, grilled, fried in a pan or made in a panini grill or sandwich toaster (this method is more common in the United Kingdom where the sandwiches are normally called “toasted sandwiches” or “toasties” and in Australia where they are called “jaffles”). A clothes iron has also been utilized to make a grilled cheese in a pinch, as in a hotel room where there are no other cooking appliances. In Benny and Joon, Johnny Depp’s character Sam makes a stack of grilled cheese sandwiches this way, though most recommend wrapping the sandwich in aluminum foil to keep the iron clean.

When making grilled cheese on an open griddle or pan, one side is cooked first, then the sandwich is flipped and cooked on the other side. The sandwich is finished when both sides are toasted and the cheese has melted. Butter, oil, or mayonnaise may first be spread on either the bread or the cooking surface in the case of butter and oil. An alternative technique is to toast or grill each half of the sandwich separately, then combine them. Another method sometimes referred as an “inside out” grilled cheese has an extra layer of cheese put on the outside of each side and cooked, causing the cheese to caramelize into a crispy outer layer.

When using butter best results are achieved at a medium heat. This prevents the milk solids in butter from burning and allows sufficient time for heat to thoroughly penetrate the sandwich and melt the cheese without burning the bread. A crispy golden-brown crust with a melted cheese center is a commonly preferred level of preparedness. Cooking times can vary depending on pan dimensions, ability to control the intensity of the heat source, bread type, cheese variety and overall thickness of pre-cooked sandwich.

Grilled Ham and Swiss Pot Soup 005

 

 

Another day and another 2″ of snow! We just get our driveway and walks clear and snows again, HO HO HO! They say by Thursday though it’s going to hit 50 degrees. Dropped of the food I had bought for the Free Food Store and that was about it for the day. I did get in an on-line Scrabble Tournament, love playing Scrabble! For dinner I kept it simple and a real comfort food meal. I prepared a Grilled Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Chunky Baked Potato with Cheddar and Bacon Soup.

 

 

Grilled Ham and Swiss Pot Soup 004

 
My cousin gave my Mom an Appleton Farms Smoked Ham-Shank Portion, which quite possibly be the best tasting Baked Ham we had ever tasted or prepared! Just an incredible taste and very moist and tender. This is one good Ham. My cousin and her family buy them all the time from Aldi, at 99 cents a lb. We’ll be buying our Hams there from now on. I sliced some Ham off for the Sandwich. I used Klosterman Wheat Bread and 2 slices of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese. Put the Ham and Cheese on the Bread and got out the flat top griddle. I heated the griddle up putting a 1/2 tablespoon of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter on it and then grilling my SandwicH, about 3 minutes each side till golden brown.

For my Soup I used Campbell’s Chunky Baked Potato With Cheddar and Bacon Bits. I love thick Soups and this one works! It’s thick with nice chunks of Potato, it’s 200 calories and 20 net carbs per serving. As always the simplest meals are sometimes the best! For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Mango Chunk Cup.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Cheese Sandwich w/ Portobello Mushroom and Madeira Bisque

 

Grilled Cheese and Mushroom Bisque 003
Heavy rain on and off all day. We are on a tornado and high wind warning till about 9:00 tonight. Hope we avoid that weather! Well they finished my new ramp into the house. They did a great job, it looks fantastic. Paid for the new ramp and our Microwave goes out, when it rains it pours! Hopefully get a new one sometime tomorrow. Kept it simple for dinner tonight preparing a Grilled Cheese Sandwich with a Portobello Mushroom and Madeira Bisque.

 

 
A Grilled Cheese and a Soup (Bisque) just sounded good! For my Grilled Cheese I used Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Klosterman Wheat Bread. Buttered the top and bottom of the Bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and put my Cheese in between the slices and Grilled it on a flat-top griddle. Made sure both sides were browned and then served it.

 

 

Grilled Cheese and Mushroom Bisque 005
For the Bisque or Soup I used a new one that I haven’t tried before, Campbell’s Slow Kettle Style Portobello Mushroom and Madeira Bisque. It comes in a microwavable container but since our microwave has died I went with heating it up in a sauce pan. Just heated it on medium heat until it started to simmer. Campbell’s has a winner with this one! Nice chunks of Mushrooms with excellent seasoning. Served it with a side of Oyster Crackers. Fantastic Comfort Food Dinner tonight! For dessert/snack later tonight some slices of Cracker Barrel 2% Sharp Cheddar Cheese on Ritz Whole Grain Crackers.

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

 

Grilled Ham and Swiss Pot Soup 001
A cool day today but I wanted to get out and take a look at some of the beautiful trees that have all turned to their Autumn colors. So I broke out the Sweat Shirt and got the 4 wheel mobility scooter out. The trees are beautiful, especially on our main road here in the community and down around the lake and clubhouse. I just love this time of year! For dinner a simple but warming and hearty dinner, Chunky Baked Potato with Cheddar and Bacon Bits Soup w/ a Grilled Ham and Swiss Cheese Sandwich.

 

 

 
For my Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich I used Kroger Private Selection Oven Roasted Rosemary Ham (Deli Sliced). I’ve been using this ham for a while now. Fantastic taste and sliced real thin. It’s 70 calories and 1 carb per serving (3 Slices). For the Cheese I used 2 slices of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss. My Cheese Brand of choice for about any dish or sandwich. The Swiss is only 40 calories a slice. For a topping spread I used Litehouse Lite Thousand Island Dressing and Dip (70 calories and 4 carbs per serving). Incredibly flavorful dressing and it’s the Lite version. I served it on a couple of slices of Klosterman Wheat Bread (70 calories and 13 net carbs). To prepare just layer you Ham and Cheese on the Bread and then Butter the top and bottom of sandwich, with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I grilled it on a flat top grill sheet till each side was toasted a golden Brown.

 

 

 

Grilled Ham and Swiss Pot Soup 004
I also used my favorite Potato Soup, Campbell’s Chunky Baked Potato with Cheddar and Bacon Bits. Love this Soup, it’s nice and thick with some big chunks of Potato with just the right amount of Cheddar and Bacon Bits. Plus it can’t be much easier to prepare, just open the can and heat it up in a small sauce pan. Love the taste and it’s only 190 calories and 19 net carbs. A good meal for an Autumn Day or any Day for that matter. For dessert/snack later I think I’ll have some Pringle’s Fat Free Potato Chips with some Hidden Valley Smoked Bacon Dressing and Dip.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

October 2, 2013 at 7:15 AM | Posted in Kitchen Hints | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , ,

There are many uses for stale bread other than feeding the ducks at the pond! Spread with butter, minced garlic, and whatever dried herbs you have, then toast in the toaster oven and cube to make croutons. You can also cut the bread into smaller pieces, then chop in a blender or food processor to make bread crumbs (you may have to cut the bottom crust off first). If you find that your bread often goes stale before you use it, slice it and store in the freezer. Separate out slices ans let sit for about 5 minutes at room temperature to defrost, or stick directly in the toaster. Frozen bread is also great to use for grilled cheese sandwiches – it’s much easier to butter and it will defrost as it cooks in the pan.

It was comfort food Heaven for dinner tonight, 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich! It’s good anytime of the year but especially when it’s cold outside, warms the body no matter how cold it is outside!

 

 

So I took my last container of the Chili out of the freezer over night and let thaw in the fridge, then just warm it up and it’s ready to go. I make it with Honeysuckle White Extra Lean Ground Turkey and 3 different Beans; Spicy Chili Beans, Dark Red Low Sodium Kidney Beans, and Great Northern White Beans. I add 1 Packet of McCormick Chili Mix to it and then load up the great spices on top of it; 1 Tbs Minced Garlic, 1 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tsp. Ground Roasted Cumin, 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves, and 5 Dashes (or more) of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste! I also add 2 small cans of Tomato Paste and 1/2 cup of Water. COVER with lid and cook and simmer on HIGH 3 to 4 hours (or on LOW 5 to 6 hours). I cooked mine on low for about 5 1/2 hours. You’ll love the aroma as it slowly cooks. When ready I topped with just a bit of fresh grated Dutch Gouda and about 3 shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.
I served it with a Grilled Cheese Sandwich that I made with Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar and Swiss Cheese. I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to butter the bread with before grilling. Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are great! You can fix it so many ways with endless toppings. Chili and Grilled Cheese, it doesn’t get much better! For dessert later a Honeybell Orange with some Apple slices.

Cheese of the Week – Muenster

September 14, 2012 at 8:54 AM | Posted in cheese, cooking, Food | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , ,

Muenster is a cheese from the United States, not to be confused with the French variety, Munster. The name Muenster is derived from an English transliteration of Münster, a city in Germany. The original name of the French cheese comes from Alsatian abbey of Munster in the Vosgian mountains. Munster translates as “monastery”, altered from Latin monasterium.

Its taste is comparable to that of both typical white American cheese and a sharp jack cheese.

Muenster is a smooth textured cheese with an orange rind and a white interior. This washed-rind cheese is made from cows’ milk. The orange color is derived from vegetable coloring. It usually has a very mild flavor and smooth, soft texture. In some cases, when properly aged, it can develop a strong flavor with a pungent aroma. This cheese is commonly served as an appetizer. Because it melts well, it is also often used in dishes such as grilled cheese sandwiches, tuna melts, quesadillas, cheeseburgers, macaroni and cheese, and pizza.
American versions are sold younger, and with a weaker taste, than European versions.

1/2 cup chicken broth

Directions

Dip chicken in milk, then in breadcrumbs. Lightly brown coated chicken in a large skillet, then arrange in a 9×13 inch baking dish.
Top each chicken with a slice of cheese. Top with mushrooms, then pour broth over and around chicken. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes; remove cover, baste with any remaining broth, and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Cheese w/ Tomato Soup

 

 

It was comfort food at for dinner tonight! Grilled Ham & Salame and Cheese and a bowl of Tomato Soup! For my sandwich I used Oscar Mayer Carver Board Ham and for the Cheese something new, Buffalo Monterey Jack! I ran across it at Kroger and it’s a Kroger Brand; Private Selection. It sounded good and tasted even better! It’s got a hint of the Buffalo Heat and coupled with the Monterey/Jack it’s fantastic. Topped it with some Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil. I served it on Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I buttered the outside of each slice of bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and grilled the sandwich browning both sides. I Love all the different types of Grilled Cheese and the different ways and toppings are endless. The ham, salame, and Buffalo Mont./Jack is a great trio!

 

For the soup I used Amy’s Organic Light in Sodium – Cream of Tomato Soup which has been my Tomato Soup of choice lately. Not only great tasting but it’s only 110 calories and 19 carbs! I left the Soup info and description at the end of the post. For dessert later a Jello Sugar free Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: New England Clam Chowder w/ Oyster Crackers and a Hot Hammy Cheese

 

A simple but flat out lip smacking good dinner tonight! New England Clam Chowder w/ Oyster Crackers and a Hot Hammy Cheese, Sounds good but tasted even better! My Clam Chowder wasn’t home made but was every bit as good. I used Campbell’s Chunky New England Clam Chowder with Hearty Potatoes. If you have a craving for Clam Chowder but don’t have the time or just want a simple way to prepare it give Campbells a try. Great taste, plenty of Clams and Potatoes, and in a nice thick stock. It has 210 calories and 23 carbs per serving. I topped with just a sprinkle of fresh grated Dutch Smoked Gouda and some Skyline brand Oyster Crackers, I could make a meal out of the Cheese and Crackers!

 

I also prepared a Hot Hammy and Cheese Sandwich. I used Oscar Mayer Carver Board Ham, Sargento Ultra Light Swiss Cheese, and Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. In a small skillet I heated the slices of Ham and while that was heating I split the Muffin in half and toasted it in the toaster. To assemble just put the Ham on one of the Muffin halves and top the Ham with the Sargento Swiss and add the other half of the Muffin, the Swiss will start melting immediately. A simple but quite hearty dinner! For dessert later a fresh baked Pillsbury Apple Turnover, a nice way to end the day.
