Super Grilled Cheese Sandwiches: Pink Ribbon Recipe

Super Grilled Cheese Sandwiches: Pink Ribbon Recipe


Hi everybody :)

I LOVE grilled cheese sandwiches, so when I saw this recipe in the book I knew I had to give it a try. These grilled cheese sandwiches have two extra ingredients added to them; tomato and green onions. LOVE IT!

This recipe may be a good choice for cancer patients because of it's calcium percentages.  To make sure you're getting enough calcium daily check the labels on the foods you buy. If you add up all the percentages for the day, you should reach at least 100 percent Daily Value for calcium. With this recipe, you're off to a great start, because it has 20 percent.

Super Grilled Cheese Sandwiches adapted  Betty Crocker Living with Cancer Cookbook
Prep Time: 5 Minutes      Start to Finish: 15 Minutes      4 sandwiches


 














4 slices (1 oz each) Cheddar, mozzarella, Colby or Monterey Jack cheese (I used Colby-Jack)
8 slices Italian sourdough, white or whole wheat bread (I used Whole Wheat Bread)
2 medium green onions, sliced (2 tablespoons)
1 medium tomato, seeded, chopped (3/4 cup)
8 teaspoons butter or margarine, softened (I used I Can't Believe It Not Butter Light)
 

Place cheese slices on 4 slices of bread. 

















Top with onions and tomato, 
















      (I added another slice of cheese on top of the tomato/onions.)
















then remaining bread. Spread 1 teaspoon butter over each slice  of bread.





In 12-inch skillet, place sandwiches, butter sides down. Spread remaining butter over top slices of bread.







Cook uncovered over medium heat about 5 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. 




















Turn and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until bottoms are golden brown and cheese is melted. Using pizza cutter, cut sandwiches into wedges or sticks.

What I Did and/or Think:
I follow the recipe directions except for the changes I made in Italic. As you may have notice in the picture, I put an extra slice of cheese on top of the tomato and green onions so they were super cheesy :) 

The Taste:  To say the least the sandwiches were great. I love the added flavor the tomato and green onions gave to the sandwiches also.  I played around with one of them and added some slice mushrooms, very tasty. This is definitely a REPEAT, ladies.
















ENJOY! Come again...
