Borden Cheese is making the back-to-school season easier…and delicious. Back to school means it’s back to the grind which also means it’s time to whip up quick and easy school lunches and rushed midweek dinners.
Launched just a few months ago, Borden Melts are made by dairy-aisle favorite, Borden Cheese. These new cheese slices are made with real cream in every slice for a perfect melt every time. Smooth, gooey, creamy and delicious, these individually wrapped cheese slices are ready to use in a variety of ways. Plus, they are available in four crave-able varieties including Extra Sharp Cheddar; Pepper Jack (it’s spicy!); Swiss; and the bestselling American Cheese.
Moms, dads, and caregivers can create a meal in minutes with just one pack of cheese: perfect for lunchbox sandwiches, weeknight grilled cheese, quesadillas, burgers, paninis, and more.
Plus, they last in the fridge for longer than many sandwich ingredients and they pack a punch of protein and calcium. At 60 calories, 4g of protein per slice, 30 percent calcium per serving, Borden Melts are available in 16-slice packages in select stores.

Meat Lovers Grilled Cheese
¼ cup salted butter, softened
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 pinch Italian seasoning
8 slices crusty sourdough bread
16 slices Borden American Melts
8 slices beefsteak tomato
8 slices smoked ham
8 slices bacon, cooked crisp
Combine the butter, garlic and Italian seasoning in a small bowl and blend well.
Spread a thin layer of garlic butter on one side of four slices of bread. Place the bread butter side down on a cutting board. Top each slice with two slices of American cheese, two slices of tomato, two slices of ham, two slices of bacon, two more slices of cheese and another slice of bread. Spread the tops of the sandwiches with the remaining garlic butter.
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Place the four sandwiches in the skillet and cook covered, for two to three minutes or until the bread browns. Turn over and cook for another two minutes or until the bread browns and the cheese has melted. Slice in half and serve immediately.
