Being a full time food blogger, I usually end up doing quite a bit of cooking and baking during the week. The kitchen is my "office", so when the weekend rolls around I actually try to stay out of it as much as possible. ;) And weekend time also happens to be family time for me, so I still want to make a fun lunch that I can feel good about giving to my kids but that gets me out of the kitchen and at the table with them quicker. Cue one of my new favorite weekend lunch go-to's, Campbell’s® Organic Kids Soup! :)

Campbell’s® Organic Kids Soups are crafted from certified organic ingredients and contain no preservatives. (A soup that I can feel good about serving to my kiddos as part of a weekend lunch? Check!) And Campbell’s® nine delicious varieties of Organic Kids Soups can be ready in mere minutes. (A soup that gets me out of the kitchen and back to my weekend quicker? Check!)
Since my youngest is a huge fan of the movie Frozen, I decided to make her a special lunch this past weekend with Campbell’s® Organic Kids Soup featuring fun shapes from Disney's Frozen. And what better to go with a warm bowl of Frozen inspired soup than some snowflake shaped grilled cheeses to dunk in it? These snowflake grilled cheeses are so easy to make and so much more fun than boring ole grilled cheese sandwiches! :) You can even get the kiddos to help with making these (aka, even more quality family time together)...

Snowflake Shaped Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

by Frugal Foodie Mama
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients (2 servings)
  • 8 pieces of bread
  • margarine or spreadable butter
  • 4 slices of your favorite cheese
  • 1 (10oz) carton of Campbell’s® Organic Kids Soup featuring Disney's Frozen
  • You will need a large snowflake shaped cookie cutter for this.
On a large cutting board, assemble each of your grilled cheese sandwiches. Place one slice of cheese between 2 slices of bread. Do this to make 4 sandwiches. Roll each of the sandwiches out slightly with a rolling pin. (This is a fun task to let the kids help with.) Butter each side of the rolled out sandwiches. Rolling out the sandwiches creates more space to use the snowflake cookie cutter with later.
Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Once heated, add the grilled cheese sandwiches two at a time. Cook each side until golden brown & crispy, about 1-2 minutes each side. Remove from pan and place back on the cutting board. Allow the sandwiches to rest for a few minutes before cutting them with the cookie cutter. You want the melted cheese to set back up slightly so it doesn't ooze out when you cut them into snowflake shapes.
Cut each sandwich into a large snowflake using your cookie cutter. (You can save the scraps to snack on later.) Heat the Campbell’s® Organic Kids Soup according to the package directions. Once heated ladle into 2 bowls and serve each bowl with 2 snowflake grilled cheese sandwiches.

Campbell’s® soups happen to have been a staple of many of my own childhood lunches growing up, so I love that I can serve a familiar favorite to my own kids. But only now this favorite soup from my childhood is made from well grown, well made ingredients and is free from preservatives.
