Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham, Bacon, and Muenster Cheese Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I broke out a can of Turkey Spam. First time I used Turkey Spam in quite a while. It’s another one of those items I love but never seem to use often. I sliced off a couple of pieces to fry. I lightly sprayed a small skillet with Pam Non Stick Spray and heated the skillet on medium heat. Since they’re already fully cooked while still in the can, so you only need to brown them slightly. About two minutes on each side. As the Spam cooked I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I then used the same skillet I fried the Spam and fried 1 Egg Sunnyside Up. Put it all together and I had one delicious Turkey Spam and Fried Egg Breakfast Sandwich! I’ve been dealing with a Sinus Headache the last couple of days so being caught up on all the house work I rested and caught up on some shows I recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham, Bacon, and Muenster Cheese Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

When I went to Kroger the other day I picked up some Boar’s Head Sweet Sliced Ham and Boar’s Head Muenster Cheese. Which means it’s time again for Grilled Sandwiches! So for tonight Grilled Sandwich I’m making a Grilled Ham, Bacon, and Muenster Cheese Sandwich! I’ll be using Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon, Boar’s Head Muenster Cheese, French’s Spicy Brown Mustard, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, and Aunt Millie’s light Whole Grain Bread. I’ll be preparing the Sandwich on my flat top griddle so I’ll also need some Blue Bonnet Light for the griddle to grill my Sandwich. That’s the ingredients for another delicious Grilled Sandwich! I also turned the oven on at 425 degrees, for the Fries.

 

I first prepared my Bacon. Again, I used Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon. It fries up great and love the flavor. But AS always when preparing Bacon you have to use Bacon Math to figure out how much Bacon to fry. I needed 3 slices so by my Bacon Math that totals out 6 slices! When making Bacon always multiply the amount by 2. Because you know you’ll always eat as much as you making! Laid the Bacon on a Paper Towel lined plate until needed.

 

 

 

 

While the griddle was heating I got the Sandwich ready to grill. Took a slice of the Aunt Millie’s Bread and topped it with some of the Kraft Mayo. Then layered the Boar’s Head Ham, the Boar’s Head Muenster Cheese, the Bacon, French’s Brown Spicy Mustard, and added the top slice of the Bread. I then Buttered the bottom and top halves of the Bread with Blue Bonnet Butter. With the griddle heated I grilled my Sandwich. Grilled the bottom half just over 3 minutes, then flipped it over and grilled the other side about 2 1/2 minutes. Until both sides were golden brown! What a Sandwich, Boar’s Head Gone Wild! The Ham ,as always, was delicious and the Muenster Cheese with it’s melted creaminess made the sandwich. And of course Bacon on anything makes it better! The Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon has slowly become my favorite Bacon. Last week I used Boar’s Head Gouda Cheese and I switched it up using the Boar’s Head Muenster Cheese. Both melt beautifully on Sandwiches and have that rich creamy taste. I love either one!

 

As my Grill was heating I baked my Fries. I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right. Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. It’s an easy prepared but hot and filling meal. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Muenster cheese (Wiki)
Muenster (English: /ˈmʌnstər/ or /ˈmʊnstər/) or munster is a semi-soft cheese from the United States. It is thought to be an imitation of the Alsatian washed-rind Munster cheese, introduced by German immigrants. It is distinct from the processed dairy food Sweet Muenster Cheese. Its name is unrelated to the German city of Münster or the Irish province of Munster but to the French city of Munster in Alsace.

In contrast, “Munster”, or “Munster Gerome”, is made from unpasteurized cow’s milk in the Alsatian Vosges region and the Franche-Comté regions in France. The name Munster-Géromé is a protected A.O.C. and is strictly regulated in its production technique and source geography. The American “muenster” name distinguishes these cheeses.

Its taste varies from bland, like a white American cheese, to sharp, like a Monterey Jack cheese.

Muenster is pale in color and smooth in texture with an orange rind. The cheese is made from cow’s milk. The rind’s orange color is from annatto, a sweet and nutty seasoning used to add flavor and color to cheeses such as Cheddar, Colby, Red Leicester, and Mimolette. Muenster 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.

Grilled Ham and Cheese w Baked Crinkle Fries 004
For Breakfast this morning I fried up some slices Glier’s Turkey Goetta and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Along with the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast i headed up to our local Kroger and picked up a few items for Mom and myself. Then on the way back I took the car through the car wash and back home. The heat and humidity has returned, blah! It does beat zero and snow though!! Did some cleaning outside. Back inside I had to repair a wheel on the vacuum again. The Hoover Cordless Vacuum is one of the best buys I’ve made, It makes sweeping so much easier without dealing with cord. Wanted to keep it simple and light for Dinner, tonight its a Grilled Ham and Cheese w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

Grilled Ham and Cheese w Baked Crinkle Fries 002

I used Boar’s Head Deluxe Ham, Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I had purchased the Boar’s Head Deluxe Ham at Kroger, on sale the other day. I love all the Boar’s Head Meats and Cheese. Always fresh and lower in calories and sodium. To make the sandwich I buttered one side of both slices of bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and then on the unbuttered sides layered the Ham and then the Cheese. I then grilled the sandwich in a preheated pan that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Grilling both sides until golden brown. I love a Grilled Cheese Sandwich, but the Boar’s Head Ham kicks it up another notch!

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Cheese w/ Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash

 

Findlay Market Parade

Findlay Market Parade

 

Well today is a Holiday here in the Cincinnati area! It’s Opening Day here in Cincinnati. Opening Day here is like no other Opening Day in Baseball. The day starts off with annual Findlay Market Parade, this is the 96th annual Parade this year. It’s the only day where skipping school and calling in sick to work is accepted. As long time Manager of the Reds said “It’s a holiday—a baseball holiday! Ain’t no other place in America got that!” — Sparky Anderson. So Play Ball!

 

 

It’s been partly cloudy all day but it’s in the 60’s. They are calling for rain later tonight and most of the upcoming week. After a light Breakfast went to Kroger for a few items I needed for tomorrow’s dinner, figured I would get it now while it’s not raining. Had a mid – afternoon doctors appointment at the Oncologist, just my normal 6 month check-up. For dinner tonight some delicious leftovers; Grilled Ham and Cheese w/ Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash.

 

It was leftover Heaven tonight for dinner! I used slices of the Baked Glazed Ham (Cumberland Gap Premium Boneless and Semi-Boneless Hams) that I prepared for yesterday’s dinner. I heated up a medium

Grilled Ham and Cheese Squash 004 size skillet on medium heat, added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. As that was heating I sliced some off of yesterday’s Baked Ham. Along with the Ham I used Klosterman Wheat Bread and Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese to make my sandwich with. To make the sandwich I buttered one side of both slices of bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and then on the unbuttered sides layered the Ham and then the Cheese. I then grilled the sandwich in my preheated pan. Grilling both sides until golden brown. I love a Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich, but made with this ham it was even better! The Cumberland Gap Premium Boneless and Semi-Boneless Hams are incredible, moist and so flavorful!

 

 

 

For a side dish I reheated the Maple Bacon Pecan Roasted Butternut Squash. I love this dish, it turned me into a huge fan of Butternut Squash. It does take a little time and effort to make this dish but the reward is truly one of my Grilled Ham and Cheese Squash 005favorite side dishes! To make it I’ll need; 6 pieces of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, 5 cups peeled and cubed Butternut Squash, 1 cup Pecans, roughly chopped, ¼ cup Maple Grove Farms Sugar Free Maple Syrup, 2-3 tablespoons Bacon Fat (rendered from cooking bacon), ½ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg, and ¼ teaspoon Sea Salt. I used Turkey Bacon instead of the regular Bacon, Sugar Free Maple Syrup, and added the dash of Nutmeg. Which varies from the other recipes I found, I always try to cut calories and carbs from all recipes. With these ingredients you know how delicious this is going to be! I’ve the complete recipe at the end of the post, this is one you’ll want to try! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
