It’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)
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
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)
1/4 c. light mayonnaise
4 tsp. Dijon mustard
8 slices reduced calorie rye bread
8 slices WW reduced fat Swiss cheese slices
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! 🙂
