Grilled Cheese

1 Serving (1 serving = roughly 200 calories)


2 Slices Low Calorie Bread

2 TBSP Low calorie mayonnaise

1-2 TBSP fat free cream cheese or Neufchatel

1 slice low fat American cheese singles


1. Place a skillet over medium heat.

2. Spread 1 TBSP of mayonnaise on one side of one slice of bread.

3. Spread 1-2 TBSP of cream cheese on one side of the OTHER slice of bread.

4. Place the first slice of bread in the skillet, with the mayonnaise in contact with the skillet.

5. Working quickly, place the slice of cheese on the face-up side of the bread in the pan, then place the other slice of bread on top, with the cream cheese side touching the slice of cheese. (The slice of cheese, and the cream cheese should be inside the sandwich.)

6. Spread 1 TBSP of mayonnaise on the top slice of bread.

By now, the sandwich is fully assembled and 1-2 minutes should have passed since the first slice of bread was placed in the pan.

7. Flip the whole sandwich so the mayonnaise side of the top piece of bread is face-down in the pan.

8. Let the sandwich cook for 1-2 minutes and flip.

Continue cooking if the sandwich is not as dark as you prefer. Flip every 30-60 seconds to check the doneness and avoid burning!

9. Enjoy this sandwich with a vegetable based soup, or raw fruit/vegetables on the side. We like pickles, apples slices, grapes, popcorn, and tomato soup as accompaniments.

*If you’d like, Step 5 is a great place to add variety by putting more toppings in your sandwich. Consider spinach, tomato, basil, jalapeno, turkey pepperoni, grilled chicken, or any other healthy ingredients that you enjoy!
