Instead of Grilled Cheese
cindigal posted:
I have a good healthy substitution.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

2 pieces of whole wheat bread
Low-fat cheese, either American, cheddar or swiss

Toast the bread on both the toaster oven. Put the cheese on top and toast a few more minutes and there you go.

I love to add my own variations: Add a slice of onion, or a tomato slice.

I love grilled cheese, especially when it's cold weather, and adding the tomato and onion sounds really yummy! I'm going to try this this week, thanks for the tip!

hi-this sounds great. i was wondering how to make low fat version of grilled cheese sandwich. My kids love then and tomato and onion as well. Actually both my girls munch or raw lettuce,red peppers,tomatoes,onions every day. I'm so happy that i was able to get them to love veggies and fruits. I love it too.

I like to add spinach in my grilled cheese sandwich between the cheese, it cooks nicely. and last time I made grilled cheese I also put a thin layer of guacamole on one side of the bread

Great idea! I love adding spinach to my egg breakfast dish (omelets or scrambled eggs).

I do this all the time. I like to spread avocado on the toast first and/or tomato and spouts or pickes. Melt the cheese on top to hold it all in.
