Can you believe this is the first grilled cheese sandwich I’ve shared on the blog? I thought for sure that there was one that I’d forgotten about in the depths of the archives, but no… this Smoked Turkey, Gouda and Apple Grilled Cheese is the first to grace these hallowed pages.
Let me tell you, it couldn’t come at a better time. The weather is starting to change, football is all anyone can talk about, and Halloween is right around the corner. You’ll no doubt be making plenty of Roasted Tomato Basil Soup and you’ll need a proper grilled cheese for dunking. I chose to up the protein-factor in this recipe with a little help from Prime Fresh Delicatessen. I recently picked up a few bags of their meats from Kroger and I love the convenience and flavor. You may have noticed it in the grocery store lately because Prime Fresh is the #1 Fastest growing lunchmeat in the United States! Since it is tailgating season (finally), it’s the perfect opportunity to pick up a few packages to make some incredible nibbles for watching the games with the crew. You can even check out their website for more recipe ideas!
Their quality smoked turkey breast that I used in this recipe is smoked in natural netting and is a lean 98% fat-free. Plus, It’s so easy to grab on-the-go! It’s also gluten-free, has no MSG and comes in a great Re-sealable Fresh Lock package to keep it fresher longer. In fact, the freshness of this lunchmeat is really what sets it apart from others!
To celebrate tailgating season, they’re currently hosting the Prime Fresh Tailgate Sweepstakes, and you can enter for a chance to win $5,000 at PrimeFreshDeli.com/sweeps! The sweepstakes lasts through November 4 so make sure to enter ASAP. The Grand Prize is $5,000 so you don’t want to miss out on this incredible opportunity!
You can find Prime Fresh Delicatessen in the refrigerated meat case of your local grocery store. I always pick mine up at Kroger, but you can check out their store locator to find out where it’s stocked close to you!
