Thursday's This for That!
This week's Thursday's This for That swap is one of my all time favorite things to eat. A grilled cheese sandwich! Anyone who is on or has been on weight watchers knows you find ways to enjoy your favorite foods at a lower point value. Whether you follow WW or not this is a great way to have a much healthier grilled cheese sandwich and not feel bad about indulging in something so yummy!
A normal grilled cheese sandwich you would make at home or get from a restaurant calls for
2 Slices of bread (at least 4 points)
2 Slices of American cheese (at least 4 points)
at least 1 tbsp butter (at least 1pt)
So were talking at least 9 POINTS minimum for a sandwich!
That is close to half the points most people are given in a day, so that has to show you its not a very healthy choice.
Today I will show you how to make that same tasty grilled cheese sandwich for only 3 points!
It is SO Simple! This recipe calls for:
2 Slices WW whole wheat bread (1 point) you can use other light breads that equal 2 slices for 1 point
2 Slices WW American cheese (2 points)
I can't believe it's not butter spray ( 0 points)
Use the butter spray to coat the outer sides of the sandwich and grill over medium heat on a frying pan or griddle and enjoy!!
