EAT:Red, White, and Green Grilled Cheese (from Operation Live Well)


Ingredients

  • 1 tsp garlic, minced (about ½ clove)
  • small onion, minced (about ½ cup)
  • 1 cup frozen cut spinach, thawed and drained (or substitute 2, 10-oz. bags fresh leaf spinach, rinsed)
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 medium tomato, rinsed and cut into 4 slices
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 °F. Place a large baking sheet in the oven to preheat for about 10 minutes.

2. Heat garlic with cooking spray in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Cook until soft, but not browned. Add onions, and continue to cook until the onions are soft, but not browned.

3. Add spinach, and toss gently. Cook until the spinach is heated throughout. Season with pepper, and set aside to cool.

4. When the spinach and onions have cooled, assemble each sandwich with one slice of bread on the bottom, one tomato slice, ½ cup of spinach mixture, ¼ cup of cheese, and a second slice of bread on the top.

5. Spray the preheated nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the sandwiches on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the bottom of each sandwich is browned.

6. Carefully flip sandwiches, and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until both sides are browned. Serve immediately.​​​​​​
