I was checking off my grocery list in Walmart a few days ago when I came to the next item on my list:
Who just scribbles lunch stuff on their grocery list? Me!
A sigh escaped my lips because I’m so tired of boring lunches. I quickly ran through an in-my-head list of lunch possibilities and my favorite lunch popped in my mind – grilled cheese with tomato soup. Yes, that’s my all-time favorite. But even grilled cheese can get boring.
An on-the-spot plan formed in my head, so I headed to the fruit spread aisle. I don’t know about you, but I think fruit and cheese belong together. I seldom omit a fruit and cheese tray at a party, so I decided to raise my plain grilled cheese to gourmet standards.
Welch’s Chia Strawberry Fruit Spread is just what I need to add some excitement to my midday meal. The Chia Fruit Spread contains no artificial sweeteners, flavors or preservatives. I’m a strawberry lover, but if you like grape, you’re in luck. Concord Grape is also available.
Gourmet Grilled Cheese with Jarlsberg and Chia Strawberry Fruit Spread
You’ll need grated Jarlsberg cheese, a Tablespoon of Welch’s Chia Strawberry Fruit Spread, two slices of bread and a Tablespoon of butter. I use sourdough bread, but feel free to use the bread of your choice.
Spread Welch’s Chia Strawberry Fruit Spread on one slice of bread. Sprinkle the cheese on the other slice. Make a sandwich with the two slices.
Butter the outside of one sandwich before adding to a skillet, butter side down. Add the remaining butter to the top of the sandwich.
Cook until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Flip to cook the other side for 3-4 minutes. There you have it, the ultimate Gourmet Grilled Cheese. I’ll never go back to basic grilled cheese sandwiches again.
- 2 slices bread
- 2 Tablespoons Welch's Chia Strawberry Fruit Spread
- 3 oz. Jarlsberg cheese, grated
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- Heat a skillet on medium high heat.
- Butter one side of both slices of bread.
- Spread the chia fruit spread on the other sides of both slices of bread.
- Place a slice of bread in the pan, butter side down. Top with grated cheese and the other slice of bread, butter side up.
- Brown 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden and the cheese is melted.
I feel like I’m treating myself to a gourmet meal on a work day. I can feel good about my noonday meal because Welch’s Chia Strawberry Fruit Spread has more than 700 Chia seeds per serving.
If you want to make lunch fun again, grab a jar or two of Welch’s Chia Fruit Spread at Walmart. It’s a delicious way to get the goodness of chia into your diet. The combination of Welch’s Chia Strawberry Fruit Spread and the melted cheese is irresistible and it’s my new fave sandwich.
