Clean Grilled Cheese Sandwich

One of my favorites as a child and an adult just got a clean makeover!

As you know I like trying new clean recipes all the time.  Not all of them I like and not all of them my family likes.  I am all about finding meals my whole family will eat. 

The Clean Grilled Cheese Sandwich wins a place in our family recipe box!


4 slices whole wheat bread
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 ounces low fat Cheddar Cheese, finely grated and divided
1/2 medium Granny Smith apple, halved, cored, and thinly sliced

  1. Brush one side of each slice of bread with oil
  2. Turn 2 pieces of bread over and spread with mustard
  3. Divide half of cheese between both mustard covered slices
  4. Place apples on top and then remaining cheese
  5. Top each with other half of bread, oiled side up, making 2 sandwiches
  6. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat
  7. Place sandwiches in pan and cook until light golden brown
  8. Flip over and continue cooking until cheese has melted and bread is golden brown
  9. Cut sandwiches in half (my husband and I like triangles) and serve.

If  you want to change it up a bit leave out the apples from the sandwich and have them on the side!  Either way is Yum, Yum, Yummy!
