If I were to ask you what your favorite childhood meal your mother used to make you, involving cheese, what would come to mind? Personally, a nice warm bowl of tomato soup along with a perfectly toasted grilled cheese sandwich is immediately what I think of.
I like to tell people, my family and I are always in our kitchen. We all gather around the table, not only to eat, but to laugh! To share stories of our day, which is my favorite part. I frequently cook with my oldest son, I let him add dry ingredients and help measure before pouring. When they’re all older I hope they remember being around the table and eating good, natural meals. Which is why, I’d like to share a cheese recipe with you, using the realest of cheese! Which is Sargento, Colby Jack!
We normally use mozzarella or Colby jack, I let my kiddos pick which flavor of cheese they wanted inside this time! That being said, the list of ingredients is below, where I have Colby jack, you can also use mozzarella or mild cheddar from Sargento!
Easy ingredients include:
- Pillsbury Crescents
- Your brand of sliced turkey meat
- Sargento Colby Jack natural sliced cheese
- Butter or non stick spray
Items you’ll need:
- Baking sheet (greased or sprayed)
- *Pizza cutter to cut your crescent roll (optional)
- Non stick surface to roll crescents up
After gathering all the ingredients, I preheated my oven to 375 degrees. I slicked my baking sheet with butter, and began to open my packages.
The crescents are pre cut into angled triangles, but some of my dough was still paired together, cue the *optional pizza cutter here! My son folded most cheese pieces and ripped the turkey up to fit inside the crescent and then I began to roll it to its end corner.
Once the tray was filled and evenly spaced out, off into the oven they went! It didn’t seem long before they were fluffing up right before our eyes. The first batch was put on a plate to cool and make room for the second bath to start. I made sure to step aside and let my oldest child roll a crescent.
My son was salivating watching that Sargento cheese ooze out the sides!
After sitting them upon the table, all my children’s eyes were huge! Who doesn’t get excited when they see melted cheese?! My daughter Izabella pulled her crescent in half and watched as the cheese strung to each end of it! So fun to watch her laugh and giggle, trying to eat all that tasty cheese!
One of the best achievements to a mom when making food, is hoping her kids will eat any of it. Sargento slices are natural cheese, not process cheese. Which is why its the only brand of cheese in our household. Perfect for a simple back to school snack as well!
Another point is how easy Sargento cheese is to add to simple, finger food items! All my son did was rip a square slice in half to roll it up, the cheese melted the turkey inside the crescent as it cooked, making it so easy to pick up and go!
Whenever we visit the grocery store, we’re in the cold section where cheese is located. First thing we do is look for those little red packages! My kids know exactly which cheese to grab and my youngest daughter always yell “Argentoes!” Once that package hits the cart.
Did you know, the creators of Sargento cheese; Leonard and Joe, invented the first vacuum-sealed package of cheese, the first packaged sliced cheese and the first packaged shredded cheese in the country! For over 60 years, we’ve been able to enjoy natural cheese in the comfort of our homes. It being packaged has sealed in all of the freshness for me and I’ve been able to continually keep opening it for school lunches and my husbands work lunches!
Sargento is most famously known for packaged shredded, sliced and snack natural cheeses, but also provide cheeses, appetizers and sauces to restaurants and other food manufacturers. They believe in family and good principles and real ingredients. That is the most important part of a company! Ethically, Sargento is very impressive in how they grew and started from the ground up.
