KRAFT 2% Milk Singles – 1/3 Less is More
I have always been a fan of grilled cheese sandwiches and my kids are too. They are the ultimate in comfort food and always easy to make. I watch the Food Network regularly and comfort food recipes are always a fan favorite.
I only use Kraft Singles. I grew up with Kraft Singles and have never changed brands. Honestly, I wouldn't even consider it. A grilled cheese sandwich with soup may just about be the most perfect meal.
I am excited to announce that I am a Kraft 2% Singles Spokesblogger. I get to tell you all about the Kraft 2% Milk Singles 1/3 less is more campaign, share a few recipes with you and giveaway a $50 VISA gift card.
WITH KRAFT 2% MILK SINGLES, 1/3 LESS IS MORE
*Delicious KRAFT Singles made with 2% milk have 1/3 less fat* than other American Slices
*The melty, cheesy taste you love with 1/3 less fat
*KRAFT 2% Milk Singles have 2.5g of fat per slice compared to 4.5g in the leading process cheese slice
*Better-for-you choices are lower in calories, fats, sodium and often have a specific positive nutrition benefit—high in calcium or made with whole grains
BETTER -FOR-YOU REMAKE OF AN OLD FAVORITE
One reason that this partnership is so perfect is because Kraft Foods is dedicated to offering delicious and better-for-you choices that you can feel good about eating and serving your family.
A few years ago, when I realized that my youngest daughter may actually turn into a grilled cheese sandwich, I made it my mission to create a sandwich recipe that was better for my kids and our family.
First, I switched the bread. We now use the Sara Lee Soft and Smooth Whole Wheat bread. I spray each side with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Then I pre-heat the pan and spray that with Pam.
I add four pieces of bread to the pan and lightly toast four sides. Flip the bread over and add a Kraft 2% Milk Single to two pieces of bread (although my husband always doubles up on the cheese). Let the cheese melt slightly.
Then put the sandwiches together in the pan to finish browning both sides. If the pan is looking a little dry, I sometimes add a few sprays of Can't Believe It's Not Butter! to the pan.
This better-for-you recipe did not really alter the taste of the sandwich. Kraft 2% Milk Singles are cheesy, creamy and melty just as you would expect cheese to be.
Sometimes we just make grilled cheese. Other times we may add ham or chicken. But every time, these sandwiches are a hit. So much so that my sister's kids ask me to make them every time they come over.
For more great recipes, visit Kraft Foods. Check out the recipe for the Hot Ham and Cheese Roll-Ups, another family favorite.
