Help Put a Stop to Childhood Hunger & Hawaiian Grilled Cheese Sandwich ~ #BarSserves


This is my 5 year old daughter Madison. Madison has never been hungry a day in her life, but unlike Madison, there are many children who face hunger on a daily basis. Bar-S would love to help put an end to childhood hunger, so have partnered with No Kid Hungry and has pledged to provide 1 Million meals to kids in need by the end of this year, 2017.


When it comes to childhood hunger, I have spoken on the issue numerous times before, right here on this blog. I personally believe that no child should ever go hungry, and every child deserves to have a daily nutritious meal. Children who lack proper nutrition often have poor physical health and may lack the energy to participate in physical activities or even at school. Hunger can harm not just their physical wellbeing, but also their emotional and social too. Did you know that 1-in-6 children go hungry right here in the United State of America? That's a rather unusual high statistic, especially for a first world country. For many, school provided meals may be their only form of nourishment. That's why BarS is committed to feeding kids via partnering with No Kid Hungry, especially during the summer months when these kids have no access to free school lunches. During the summer, children should be focused on being kids, enjoying what the summer has to offer, fresh air, playing with friends and family, and not worry about where their next meal will come.


I have always been a fan of BarS products. You may remember my Bacon Cheese Wrapped Franks made with BarS franks. Not only were they delicious, but they were inexpensive to make as well. We always keep their franks, bologna and deli ham in our refrigerator so we can make quick after school snacks or even dinner. One particular meal that we love making is our Hawaiian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. It puts a spin on the regular grilled cheese sandwiches and since we love pineapple and ham on our pizza, I figured why not? It was a hit and still is.

Hawaiian Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Here is what you'll need:

Ingredients:

2 slices of bread
2 slices of pineapple, fresh or canned
Slices of BarS Deli Ham
Muenster cheese or cheese of choice
butter


Directions:

Butter one side of each slice of bread.

On the non buttered side place your Muenster cheese, then the ham, pineapple, ham, cheese and top with the other slice of bread with the buttered side facing up.

Cook your sandwich on your stove top in a frying pan or a griddle.

Once your bread is toasted on one side, flip to toast the other side.

Cook on a low heat so your cheese can melt while your bread is toasting.

Remove from heat once you've reached your desired 'toastiness', serve then enjoy.



BarS believes in giving back to communities, learn more about BarS and their pledge to No Kid Hungry, because every kid deserves healthy food, every day! You can find BarS products at your local supermarkets.

  1. My kids have never gone hungry either, except if you count a picky eater in my youngest. But in all seriousness, thanks for sharing about this important cause. Plus, now I am so trying your grilled cheese sandwich for lunch here for us soon ;)

  2. We eat a lot of grilled cheese for lunch, and this one looks tasty. It breaks my heart that children go hungry all the time. I worked in two different local elementary schools, and it was difficult seeing kids come to school with only one meal a day, and that was what they received from school.

  6. I didn't realize BarS was doing this, but it's going to such an important cause. These Hawaiian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches looks amazing! My favorite pizza is Hawaiian and I've always loved this flavor combo. I'll definitely have to make these for the family!

  8. It's sad that in a country as wealthy as ours that we still have children going to bed hungry each night. Kudos to BarS for partnering with No Kid Hungry in helping to see that children get proper nutrition in their tummies. And your sandwich definitely looks like a must try!

  12. It makes me so sad to think about childhood hunger. It is such a needless epidemic. And as a side note, I always love pictures of your little girl. She's so cute.

  13. Great frugal recipe idea! It's so sad to see so many kids going without a nutritious meal. Thank you for raising awareness about this important issue!

  14. This is great to bring awareness to hunger to children and I love grilled cheese. Never had pineapple on any hot food items like sandwich or pizza but I'd like to try it.

  15. You have a good heart and you're a great mom. Thank you for raising the awareness, I can't even imagine my children having empty stomachs and can't do anything about it.

  16. What a great pledge! We will have to try this recipe. I cannot believe that 1 in 6 kids in the U.S. go hungry. That is so heartbreaking. I will have to get buy Bar S products.

  17. I love cheese and I love pineapple and so I would expect I would love this! I think was Bar S is doing, and you, is downright incredible. One million meals!!

  18. I love supporting brands that help out especially when they focus on the children. I agree with you, no child should ever go hungry! And we're dealing with a pretty high statistic!

  19. I would love to help out as well. I have two boys who have never been hungry in their lives. They are so lucky and I can't say the same for many children out there. It's nice to help BarS in their mission to feed the kids.

  20. I love what Bar S is doing. I was just telling my daughter how lucky she is that she has never been hungry.

  21. I've never heard of a Hawaiian Grilled Cheese. It sure does look like a really delicious sandwich.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That looks delicious plus for a great cause, you can't get any better!

  23. Oh wow, I would never have thought to do a grill cheese sandwich with pineapples, but it totally makes sense. I love grill pineapples, pineapples on my burgers and this probably tastes just as awesome. Thanks for the idea.

  24. Looks really good! It is just like having Hawaiian pizza. I like the sweet-tangy taste of the pineapple. It would be a perfect compliment to the Bar-S deli ham.

  25. I love grilled cheese sandwiches, but have never had one like this before. Definitely sounds like an interesting recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I always patronize products that give back to the community, especially if it will be for the benefit of the children. BarS is doing a great job to alleviate child hunger, a sad reality nowadays. Thanks for the recipe. We'll be getting this brand of deli meat next time we shop. A little help goes a long way.

  27. Childhood hunger is such a serious topic and one I'm happy to see social influencers bringing awareness to. Those grilled cheese sandwiches sound so good!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I had no idea Bar-S did that - thanks so much for letting us know! Our church has a garden and gives the produce to a similar program in our nearby city schools where parents can get supplemental food/healthy recipes weekly all summer (and on weekends during the school year). And the recipe looks yum, too - my 5yo would LOVE this!

  29. This looks delicious! I am so making this for the kids lunches this week!

  30. I had never thought of putting pineapple in a ham and grilled cheese sandwich, but it totally makes sense! I am going to have to try this for myself :-D

  31. Mm.. Remember I made Hawaiian Grilled Cheese earlier this year? I liked it fresh but also made it grilled, and most people agreed that grilled was best.
    Awesome cause too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. That is so awesome to hear that! I love when companies give back!
