15 Grilled Cheese Ideas | Happy Grilled Cheese Month!!!
This Gourmet Grilled Cheese Recipe Is Packed With Veggies
When someone mentions grilled cheese, images of burnt white bread dripping with butter and melted cheddar likely come to mind. But we think it's time rethink—and lighten up—this comfort food classic.
(Find out how to stop the craving cycle before it starts and burn fat around the clock with the naturally sweet, salty, and satisfying meals in.)
Our grown-up gourmet version gets a flavor and health boost from fiber-rich kale, scallions, and fresh garlic. It also has a layer of smashed avocado for a touch of healthy unsaturated fat and two pieces of hearty whole wheat in place of the usual nutrient-void white. And rather than frying the sandwich in a wad of butter, this recipe calls for toasting it on a skillet coated in cooking spray—a lighter alternative that also keeps the bread from getting overly greasy.
