Grown Up Grilled Cheese

Posted on

I love grilled cheese. I found this on Cooking Light and my mouth was watering.

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup vertically sliced red onion
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp white cheddar cheese (such as Cracker Barrel)
  • 8 (1 1/2-ounce) slices hearty white bread (such as Pepperidge Farm)
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
  • 8 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato
  • 6 slices center-cut bacon, cooked

1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 1 cup onion and garlic; cook for 10 minutes or until tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally.

2. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese over each of 4 bread slices. Top each slice with 1/2 cup spinach, 2 tomato slices, 2 tablespoons onion mixture, and 1 1/2 bacon slices. Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons cheese; top with the remaining 4 bread slices.

3. Heat skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Place sandwiches in pan, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese melts.

Serves 4.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
