{tasty tuesdays} Cheesy goodness

Melty, stringy, delicious cheese-- that is the theme for tonight's Tasty Tuesday. As promised I am posting two recipes to tempt you. I'm sorry that I don't have pictures to go with these, but I have made them both in the past (the mac and cheese was dinner last night, actually) and they are some of our favorites. Not only are they quick and easy, they are also kid-friendly! Not healthy, maybe, but definitely worth eating. :) So go get your cheese on!

Campbell's Ooey-Gooey Mac and Cheese
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) Campbell's Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
1/2 soup can milk
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups hot cooked large elbow macaroni or large shell pasta
Small amount of salt, to taste

Heat soup, milk, black pepper, and cheddar cheese in small saucepan over med-low heat until melted together. Pour over hot cooked pasta (boil the pasta while you are doing the sauce) and stir together. Add salt if you think it needs it. Serve piping hot.

Serves 4.

Heartland Pepper Harvest Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Butter, softened
cracked wheat bread
Monterey Jack Cheese
Provolone Cheese
Thinly-sliced peppered roast beef or pastrami
crisp-cooked bacon
fresh-ground pepper
Stack bread with monterey jack cheese, meats, pepper, and provolone cheese (if you do it with cheese on top and bottom it will hold your sandwich together with it's yummy meltiness, of course). Spread butter on top and bottom of sandwich. Cook sandwiches on med. heat on griddle 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden and cheese is melted.

The grilled cheese is perfect because April is grilled cheese month! Both sound deliciously cheesy. Mm.

and the sandwich. OH. MY. Goodnes... Sounds amazing!
