What I am about to tell you about is the most epic Grilled Cheese IN.ALL.THE.LAND
My mouth is watering just writing this post.
Lemme’ break it down for you…
You have 2 nicely buttered hearty Italian bread slices, turkey chunks, homemade cranberry sauce, and the most amazing cheese I have ever tasted….Great Midwest Cheese.
Please do not be scared of homemade cranberry sauce. It’s the easiest condiment to make.
You take your cranberries (I stock up at the holidays and freeze them, so I can have cranberries all year long)
Get your little one to squeeze some fresh orange juice.
Mix it together with some sugar, orange zest and the cranberries.
Bring it to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Easy Peasy.
- 2 thick cut pieces Italian Bread
- 1 tablespoon Butter
- Turkey Chunks ( your desired amount)
- 2 tablespoons Cranberry Sauce (recipe below)
- 8⅛” slices Cranberry Cheddar Great Midwest Cheese
- 1½ cups fresh Cranberries
- ½ cup Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
- ⅓ cup White Sugar
- zest of 1 Orange
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine cranberries, orange juice,sugar and orange zest.
- Bring to boil, reduce heat to low and gently simmer for 10 minutes until thickened.
- Allow to cool and store in refrigerator.
- Spread one side of each piece of bread with butter.
- Place 1 slice of bread, buttered side down in a skillet over medium heat.
- Add 4 slices of cheese to the slice of bread.
- Top the cheese with 1 tablespoon cranberry sauce.
- Add turkey to the top of cranberry sauce.
- Add remaining 4 slices of cheese.
- Place the other slice of bread buttered side up.
- Cook for about 4 minutes per side until bread is golden and cheese has melted.
You know I have lots of product reviews, only the ones I love actually make it on the site.
When Great Midwest contacted me about the cheese review, I almost passed it up.
You see, I thought I wasn’t a cheese person.
Cheese/fruit and cracker tray at a party??? Pffft, not touching that.
The extent of my cheese eating was when I was pregnant with my second child, I CRAVED fried mozzarella cheese sticks…like I needed them. I couldn’t live without them. I cried for them, seriously.
Great Midwest Cheese has changed me forever. Sounds pretty cheesy doesn’t it?
I said cheesy. Ha ha
I went from only eating cheese with child, to wanting cheese every night….
Below you will find my new MUST HAVE craving.
Blueberry Cobbler Great Midwest Cheese, on Wheat Thins topped with my homemade cranberry sauce. HEAVEN.
Take a gander at the blueberry marbling in the Blueberry Cobbler Cheddar. I. CANT. EVEN
Their flavors are all so intriguing…and all so amazing! There really is a flavor for everyone.
The cast of Savory Cheddars are
Naturally Smoked Cheddar
Garlic and Dill Cheddar
The sweet Cheddars are my favorite
Blueberry Cobbler Cheddar
Mango Fire Cheddar
Apple Cinnamon Cheddar
The Monterey Jack flavors are life changing as well.
I used the Morel & Leek Jack on my hamburgers and it melted amazing…like buttah.
The Salsa Jack, Oh heavens. I shredded it over some tortilla chips, popped it in the microwave for some some instant Nachos! Took all of 30 seconds. Soooooooooo good!
My husband ate ALLLLL of the Habanero Jack(not all in one sitting).
And the Jalapeño Jack has the perfect amount of spice!
