Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Creamy Potato Soup
A light Breakfast this morning. I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. And as usual I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it’s mostly cloudy and a high in the mid 60’s. So after Breakfast I headed over to the hospital to see Dad. He seemed to be doing better today. They have run a series of tests on him and they all keep coming back negative. Really worried about him. Back home, I had the carpets all cleaned yesterday. So today I moved the furniture back in place. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham and Swiss Sandwich w/ Creamy Potato Soup.
It’s a Comfort Food Dinner tonight, Grilled Ham and Swiss Cheese Sandwich w/ Creamy Potato Soup. To make my Grilled Ham Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo, French’s Yellow Mustard, Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread.
To prepare it I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Next spread the Mayo on the bottom slice of Bread, next layered the Ham, spread the Mustard, and added the slice of the Swiss. 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. Love these Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches.
For the Soup I’m using a new favorite of mine, Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup Mix. To prepare a package of it; In a 2 quart sauce pan bring 8 cups of water to a rolling boil. Whisk in the soup mix. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Salt and pepper to taste and serve! Perfect seasoning, thickened up just right, plenty of Diced Potato and a fantastic Potato flavor. The package makes 8 cups and very easy to prepare. I really love all the Bear Creek Products I’ve tried so far. So delicious and easy to prepare. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
Enjoy the exceptional flavor of a traditional bone-in ham without the bone. Available in the Deli retail case as a center of the plate item or at the Service Deli sliced by the pound for a sandwich of note.
Bear Creek Creamy Potato Soup Mix
A favorite original Bear Creek® soup. Very creamy and delicious with a delicate blend of parsley, herbs and spices to give it a little kick.
Yields about 8 one-cup servings.
Try adding crumbled bacon, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese for variety.
While they simmer on the stove, you can smell the hearty goodness of Bear Creek® soups. They’re quick and easy to make and come in 15 delicious varieties. These soups have a homemade taste that will satisfy every appetite.
