Grilled cheese sandwiches can be a dietary disaster or a nutritious treat.  Try making them this way; the taste is almost the same.  It's faster, too.

Low-fat Grilled Cheese-Plus Sandwich

  • 2 slices bread  (whole wheat, rye, high fiber or your choice)
  • 2 slices fat free (or reduced fat) cheese
  • cooking spray
  • fillers (thinly sliced tomato, shreds of thin lean ham or smoked turkey, sliced pickle, onion, pickled peppers or pickled beets, horseradish, mustard or whatever you prefer)

Use a non-stick griddle or skillet for best results.  Place a slice of cheese on the bread.  Add blotted tomato or pickle slices, onion or other filler.  Add another slice of cheese and top with bread. 

Spray the tops of the sandwiches with cooking spray while skillet heats to medium.   Put in skillet sprayed side down and toast until golden.  Spray top side, turn and cook until done.

Serve with a hot soup on cold, rainy days and you have a tummy-warming, filling, healthy treat!
