New Take on Grilled Cheese


Catherine sent another great recipe for everyone to try.  It is perfect to make when you plan on grilling.  It makes a great appetizer and to save time you can grill the cheese while you are heating up the grill.

*recipe can be found at Kraft Foods website.

Kraft’s Warm Italiano Spread

  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA 1/3 Less Fat than Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup  pesto
  • 1 plum tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup  KRAFT Finely Shredded Italian* Five Cheese Blend
  • TRISCUIT Cracked Pepper & Olive Oil Crackers

HEAT grill to medium heat. Place unwrapped cream cheese on 8-inch square sheet of heavy-duty foil; top with pesto, tomatoes and shredded cheese.


PLACE foil on grill; cover with lid. Grill 8 to 10 min. or until shredded cheese is melted and cream cheese is softened, but still holding its shape.


TRANSFER foil to platter. Serve spread with crackers.



Catherine also suggest putting the same ingredients into mushroom caps and grilling for 10 minutes.  Keep sending in your great ideas!
