About This Recipe

Another one from my forthcoming Haute & Healthy collection.

Grilled cheese is a comfort food favorite but you might know that this fried-in-butter sandwich is usually very high in fat. That's why I decided to make it into a healthy version while keeping all the melty, gooey goodness. Fresh organic ingredients take it from ho-hum to haute.

Directions

Step 1
Place the Swiss cheese on one side of a slice of bread. Then place sliced tomato on top and sprinkle with oregano.
Step 2
Follow with the Cheddar cheese and second piece of bread.
Step 3
Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Spray the outside of the sandwich with olive oil spray. Cook sandwich 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until cheese is melted and bread is toasty. If cheese isn't melting, cover the pan and check every minute until done.
