Grilled cheese and tomato soup is still one of my favorite comfort foods.  Yesterday, after a great first full day back at work for the fall, all I wanted when I got home for the night was a big bowl of comfort and some couch time.  While my craving is still the same as when I was a little girl, my version of this dish has grown up.  My tomato soup is a recipe from my aunt that is creamy and full of dill and dumplings.  The grilled cheese sandwiches have transformed into buttery, crispy, cheesy ooziness on hearty artisanal bread.  When my mom used to make my grilled cheeses, I loved the good old processed American cheese.  But now, I want a cheese that is made from real ingredients and doesn’t get completely lost in the bread.  Sargento offers real cheeses that are easily accessible in any grocery store.  Compared to processed cheeses, Sargento cheese has much more complex flavor and texture.  When it melts into my sandwich, it is soft and chewy but never rubbery like some processed cheeses can be.  And I feel good knowing that I am putting real dairy product into my body and contributing to my daily calcium intake.

As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I was given the opportunity to sample some Sargento products and I chose the sliced Muenster for these sandwiches.  Before I knew it, I was full and content.
