Kraft Singles Panini Press and Grilled Cheese Kit Giveaway – CLOSED

This giveaway is now closed. The winner, chosen via Random.org, 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.

  1. To me a bacon cheeseburger with onions is perfection only with Kraft singles as the cheese!!!!!! It melts perfectly and is creamy and delish!

  2. Ann Feldman says:

    Grilled bacon and Kraft singles is my favorite!!

  3. They’re great on hamburgers!

  4. I love making ham and cheese grilled cheese sandwiches…with guacamole! But not just any cheese will do. HAS to be Kraft American. And I totally appreciate a smooshed cheese sandwich. I like my grilled cheese’s flattened too! ;)

  5. My son made his first family dinner for us using Kraft Singles cheese on white bread toasted in the oven. He was so proud of himself. And we were completely taken aback when we walked in the door from shopping to find our 11 year old son had made dinner.

    Then I pondered how to turn off the burners in case he got creative again.
    Yes I am an overprotective mother.

  6. I love Kraft singles for grilled cheese sandwiches and a quick low calorie snack!

  7. I liked Kraft singles on Facebook.

  8. In grilled cheese, of course! :)

  9. Love making a grilled cheeses to dip in hot chocolate. Perfect sweet and savory combination!

  10. I like Kraft Singles on FB

  11. I tweeted!

  12. I also make smooshed sandwiches! I put a slice of ham along with my cheese and smoosh it all!

  13. Grilled cheese of course!

  14. Kraft singles over the top of my tomato mac and cheese. Delicious!

  15. Love Kraft American on cheeseburgers and grilled cheese sandwiches!

  16. Kraft singles are my all time favorite cheese, you can keep your foreign exotic cheeses, just give me Kraft American.

  17. My absolute favorite is the classic grilled cheese!
    There’s other yummy ways to eat Kraft Singles but that is the best in my opinion. Add some dill pickles on the side and I’m in heaven.

  18. I followed on FB

  19. I’m embarrassed to admit this, but when I was a kid (grade school), my fav thing to do was take a Kraft Single (it was a staple in our house), fold it half, and eat each half in one bite without chewing. Again, not sure why I did this. While I did this, I would fry bologna (with cuts in the bologna so it wouldn’t curl), put a slice of Kraft on it, put a lid on it until the cheese melted, put it on white bread and top with a slice of tomato. My fav after school snack. I need to do that again! But without the swallowing cheese whole part.
