NATIONAL GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH MONTH

TL APRIL IS NATIONAL GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH MONTHIt’s a meal we usually enjoy in front of the fire as snow flies outside – but yes, April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month.  I must say, my husband makes the most delicious ones in the world!  Oh, so good!

Here’s a traditional recipe – one that most of us are familiar with.

WW MINI GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES WITH TOMATO SOUP (makes 4 servings – 6 points each)

INGREDIENTS:

2 Tbs. reduced calorie vegetable oil butter spread

4 slices reduced-calorie whole wheat bread

4 slices WW American cheese

14 1/2 oz. cream of tomato soup

DIRECTIONS:

Spread 1-1/2 tsp. vegetable oil & yogurt spread on each slice of bread. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Lay 2 slices of bread, dry side up, in skillet. Place 2 slices Reduced Fat American Pasteurized Process Cheese Product Singles on each slice of bread. Top each with the remaining 2 bread slices, spread side up. Cook until sandwich is golden brown on each side.

Remove from pan and cut each sandwich into 4 squares. Arrange 4 grilled cheese sandwich squares onto a skewer; repeat. Serve 1 grilled cheese skewer with 1 cup prepared soup.

I ran across the most interesting recipe for a grilled cheese sandwich – but hang on…  it’s really different – but in a good way.  😉

WW GRILLED SWISS CHEESE SANDWICHES (makes 4 sandwiches – 6 points each)

INGREDIENTS:

1/4 c. light mayonnaise

4 tsp. Dijon mustard

8 slices reduced calorie rye bread

8 slices WW reduced fat Swiss cheese slices

cooking spray

DIRECTIONS:

In small bowl, combine mayonnaise & mustard.  Spread 1/2 Tbs. on each piece of bread.  Top 4 pieces of bread with 2 slices of cheese each; cover with remaining bread, mayonnaise side down.

Coat skillet with cooking spray.  Heat over medium heat.  Grill sandwiches, pressing down lightly with a spatula, until lightly toasted & cheese melts, about 3-5 minutes.

If you’re looking for something to break the monotony, give this a try – it’s really pretty good!  If you have the points to spare, you can even have a little pouch of Goldfish crackers for 3 points!  Put them in your soup or just eat them on the side – either way they are so good!  🙂
