Kraft Singles Panini Press and Grilled Cheese Kit Giveaway – CLOSED

This giveaway is now closed. The winner, chosen via, was Brenda of A Farmgirls Dabbles! Congratulations, Brenda and thanks to everyone who entered! 

Friends, today I’m going to share something with you that may cause you to deem me as “strange”… and that’s okay. This post has to do with growing up, my friend Julie’s house, and why I would sometimes come home not hungry for dinner. This post has to do with the ever loving, goodness called a smooshed cheese sandwich.

Julie’s mom always had soft white sandwich bread in their pantry. White sandwich bread was a harsh contrast to the bread available at my house, which typically was of the 7 grain variety. Keep this detail in mind as it is critical to my story.

Many days after school I would visit Julie’s house. I loved Julie’s house not only because she was my best friend, but also because her mom always had soft, white sandwich bread and Kraft Singles. As an after school snack at Julie’s I would often make my favorite smooshed cheese sandwich. Smooshed cheese sandwiches could not be made tasty on 7 Grain Bread, so I’d often gorge myself on smooshed cheese sandwiches at Julie’s house and come home totally not hungry for dinner.

You may be wondering… “Kristen, what exactly is a smooshed cheese sandwich?” Oh friends, let me tell you. A smooshed cheese sandwich is as integral part of my childhood as, let’s say, my mom’s spaghetti and meatballs. To make a smooshed cheese sandwich you:

1. Take 2 slices of soft, white sandwich bread. White sandwich bread is key to the art of the smooshed cheese sandwich.

2. Take 1 or 2 slices of Kraft American Cheese Singles (also as important as the white bread). Place the Kraft cheese on the bread and put the top piece of bread onto your sandwich. Don’t stop and eat it now… we have one more step.

And now… the most important step in making a smooshed cheese sandwich…

3. Take your hand and “smoosh” or flatten the sandwich. This is the part where you scratch your head and wonder if I’ve been knocked off my rocker. Maybe so, but don’t knock the smooshed cheese sandwich until you try it.

I know there are other smooshed cheese sandwich fans in the world… I’ve watched you as you’ve smooshed your sandwich together at lunch time, our eyes have locked and we smiled at each other knowing that we share a special cheese sandwich bond. We *know* how much better a cheese sandwich is when smooshed.

Anyway…. are you still here? If so, I have some fun things to share with you from my friends at Kraft Singles.

    My favorite memory of a smooshed sandwich is my mom making me a bologna, cheese and mustard sandwich in a brown paper bag for lunch. It would sit in the coat room all morning and by the time lunch would happen, it would be warm and smooshed. If my mom would make me a FRESH sandwich on the weekend, it just wouldn’t be the same and I wouldn’t like it. It had to be warm and smooshed. :-)

    My favorite way to use Kraft cheese singles is to make my own stovetop macaroni and cheese. I started doing this when my now 12 year old was a baby. Take elbow macaroni, add in some butter, milk and Kraft singles. Stir around until everything is melted and combined. Voila! Mac and cheese.

    My favorite way to use Kraft Singles is melted atop a juicy grilled hamburger. It melts perfectly!

    My favourite use for Kraft Singles is grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches! I wouldn’t use any other single, only Kraft will do!
    Would love to win this awesome blog candy!

    Kraft singles, white bread, mustard and lots of black pepper! I was the ultimate picky eater in school. I took that sandwich, a snack-size bag of Doritos, a Little Debbie Oatmeal cream pie and a thermos of hot tea w/sugar and lemon for lunch everyday in high school my junior and senior years – btw, I graduated in 1977! I may have been a wee bit eccentric, even then.

    I would have to say using Kraft Singles on a grilled cheese is the way we use them the most around this household :)
