Hot Off The Presses Funny
Real Dinner, Real Fast
Ever have one of those days (or weeks) when life becomes so busy and fast you can hardly catch your breath let alone cook a full blown meal? Yeah, me too. That’s why I rely on a few go-to meals that are fast crowd pleasers. My four children are all about food items that end with the words “nugget”, “strips” and “fingers” if you know what I mean. So when I’m in a time pinch I get creative with the titles of my dishes. Just like this recipe for grilled cheese fingers. Essentially it’s just a plain ol’ grilled cheese sandwich. However, cutting it into strips or “fingers” as I like to tell my kids makes them not question a thing. Paired with a hearty soup and I’ve got dinner made in less than ten minutes. Genius? Ab-so-lutely. This is a sponsored post on behalf of Progresso, all opinions are my own.
A Perfect Combination Winner!
The perfect combination of hearty, savory and absolutely delicious – Progresso Chicken & Homestyle Noodles with grilled cheese “fingers” is definitely a family favorite. Added bonus: the grilled cheese fingers are perfectly sized for little kid fingers and for dipping too! Not to forget to mention, Progresso Chicken & Homestyle Noodles is made with quality ingredients including antibiotic free, all white meat chicken. My children basically eat this entire meal with their fingers. The homestyle noodles and huge chunks of carrots make it easy. And anything that my kids eat with or without utensils and without complaint is a definite winner in my book.
When I’m in need of restocking our pantry with Progresso soups I head to Walmart. Well, to be honest, I head to Walmart for almost everything. Walmart makes it easy for a large family like mine to stock up on the essentials. Just like Progresso Chicken & Homestyle Noodles for fast, easy and real dinners.
Grilled Cheese Fingers
Your favorite bread
Cheese (I use pre sliced cheese for extra time saving!)
Side note: The key to the best grilled cheese sandwiches start with how hot your pan is and how much butter you use. Trust me on this one! You want your pan to be on medium-high heat and your bread to be lightly buttered. The less butter the better actually.
Lightly butter one side of each piece of bread. On a medium-high heated frying pan, place your piece of bread butter side down. Top with 1-2 slices of sharp cheddar cheese. Place second piece of bread on top with butter side up. Fry until golden brown on each side.
To create grilled cheese “fingers” allow sandwich to cool slightly. Cut off crust on three sides of the sandwich. Then cut sandwich into 3 even strips (or “fingers”). Arrange on plate next to your big bowl of Progresso Chicken & Homestyle Noodles.
There is nothing stopping me from serving my family real dinners, real fast thanks to Progresso Chicken & Homestyle Noodles. And this recipe for grilled cheese “fingers” is the best amiright? Dinners will never be the same!
