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.
