Quick and Easy Rainy Day Dinner

In Southern California, we don't get very many cold, rainy, and gloomy days!  So on a day like today, comfort food was on the menu for dinner!  A coworker of mine mentioned that she was going to make grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner.  It sounded good to me as well!  This recipe was a hit in my home!

Cream Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


-Sourdough Bread
-Cream Cheese
-Lite Mayonaise
-Shredded Cheese (I used a Colby/Jack blend)
-Garlic Salt


1. Butter one side of each slice of bread per sandwich.
2. In a bowl, mix about 4oz of cream cheese, 8oz of shredded cheese, a squirt of mayo and sprinkle of garlic salt.  The cream cheese is pretty thick, so I used a hand mixer to get the right texture.
3. Heat a skillet or griddle.  Put one slice of bread (butter side down.)  Then scoop the cheese mixture onto the bread.  Put the other slice on top (butter side up.)
4. Let cook like you would a normal grilled cheese.  I like mine pretty toasty!
5. Serve with a bowl of tomato soup and a salad for a quick, easy, and tasty rainy day meal!

*Makes 4 sandwiches.*
