Easy Cheese Dreams

"These are perfect for a snack or a side to a bowl of soup! I used to make them with a crusty Italian or French loaf .......... but now I use sour dough or multi grain."

    This is perfect for a casual, Saturday night supper. Any night actually...lunch...snack....hey why not breakfast. :) I used really thick 'slabs' of french bread. Grilled both sides before putting on the cheese and bacon, then slid it back in the toaster oven until the cheese melted. It went very well with Bobbie's recipe #415044. Since this is the night we find out if we've made the Top 5, I wanted something easy and fast. This really fit the bill CountryLady. Honoured to make this as a "Thank You" for voting for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia in the 2010 Kraft Hockeyville Competition.

    I wanted something different and quick for lunch, so we tried these. I used wheat bread- I'm sure the sourdough would be better. These were OK, but I probably won't make them often because of the high calories. ;)

    I don't even have to make this to know it is yummy. My mum made these a lot for lunches with homemade soup. My kids love these. You can also add a slice of fresh tomato and 1 basil leaf & of course you can vary the cheese. Every new cook and especially moms should have this recipe. Thanks for the posting.


In the words of Tracy Byrd, "I'm from the country & I like it that way"!! On May 1, 2008 my husband and I started a new adventure. We'll be living in a 37 foot RV while our new home is under construction. Its out in the country on a dead end dirt road with lots of trees. For the next 4 months or so, most meals will be cooked on the BBQ and life will be full of challenges! We love spending quality time with our friends & family - especially the grandkids!! The photo is 4 generations - my 84 year old mother, myself, my daughter & my youngest granddaughter - taken at the end of 2006. I've participated in many contests & events here on Zaar but this is the first banner that I've posted. My thanks to Dreamgoddess for hosting the contest & SusieD for the banner design! <img src="http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f249/Dreamgoddess555/Narrow1-1.jpg">
