Make Back to School Grand with Pillsbury!

Grands! Grilled Cheese Sandwiches:

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but if you asked my girls I'm sure they'd say the most important meal {to them at least} is the after school snack!

Peyton and Lo both have bizarre lunch schedules-they each dine at the school cafeteria before 11 AM! Lo gets home at around 3 PM and Peyton gets home closer to 5-so you can imagine they are close to ravenous by the time they walk through the door! I've learned {the hard way} that life is better for everyone if I have a good snack for them when they get home everyday. But there's a fine balance between giving them a filling snack that will tide them over until dinner time and something that will keep them from enjoying our evening meal. And considering that most days I've already cooked at least one meal before they get home from school {and will be cooking another one before night's end}, I really don't want to do anything that's gonna wreck my small kitchen {and pile even more cleaning work to my load}. So this recipe using Pillsbury Grands! Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits {sent for feature consideration} is right up our alley!

One of the reason I love this simple recipe for Grands Grilled Cheese Sandwiches {find the recipe here} is that it only require one pot, makes minimal mess, and is very easily customized to suit your kids' tastes {I opted to use cheddar cheese instead of American and added a slice of turkey to a couple of them}.

These delicious biscuits were a hit amongst everyone {the hubby included}! Peyton said she loved how it was cheesy and gooey like a traditional grilled cheese sandwich, but it had an added sweetness because of the Pillsbury Grands! Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits. I also noticed that where my kids would usually eat two traditional grilled cheese sandwiches a piece, replacing the bread with biscuits made it way more satisfying for my girls and they only needed one sandwich each!
