Recipe

While I was home last week, there were many conversations about food – our favorite meals from our grandmother, the best restaurants we had ever been too, and a random conversation about strange snacks we loved as kids. My brother had a strange affinity for pickles and peanut butter, my sister loved toast with peanut butter and bananas (yum!), and my love for Kraft American cheese toasted into a chip in the microwave. Literally I would take a piece of American cheese and microwave it for about 1 minute until it turned into a cheese chip, slightly pliable and delicious. You should try it. Honestly, run to the microwave, you will be amazed. I may have made one this morning, molded it into a taco shell, and dumped in scrambled eggs with salsa.

Today’s recipe is a twist on that microwaved cheese crisp I loved as a kid, updated with some delicious roasted tomatoes. I turned the Kraft Single into a crisp in the oven since baking it adds some delicious crispy brown edges. It is a delicious snack or appetizer and will remind you of grilled cheese and tomatoes. Also in full disclosure, today’s recipe was part of the FoodBuzz Tastemaker’s Program,* but I would never endorse any product on this blog that I didn’t love and to me nothing reminds me of childhood grilled cheeses more than Kraft cheese.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and lay out your tomatoes on one of the sheets. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and your favorite spices. I like a little Chipotle powder on mine for just a touch of spice.
  3. Begin roasting the tomatoes. They will roast for a total of 20 minutes total.
  4. While the tomatoes are roasting, lay the cheese out on the other baking sheet. Place in the oven when there are ten minutes left of cooking time.
  5. Allow the cheese to crisp up and the tomatoes to finish roasting. Layer together and add any of your favorite fresh herbs.
