“This apple and cheddar grilled cheese takes the popular comfort food favorite and gives it a healthy twist by using sweet, juicy apple slices. If you use with low-fat spread and reduced amount of cheese, it’s perfect for active people trying to eat well.”
•Easy to make, less than 15 mins
•2 slices whole wheat bread
•2 teaspoons low-fat butter substitute
•2 thin slices sharp cheddar cheese
•½ green apple
•Heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat and spread ½ teaspoon low-fat butter substitute on each side of the bread slices, covering all four sides.
•Place one thin slice of cheddar cheese on each slice of bread.
•Slice the apple into 4 thick slices and lay them all on top of one slice of cheese.
•Sandwich the two slices of bread together, making sure all the cheese and apple slices are kept tucked inside and place the sandwich into the hot frying pan.
•Press down on the sandwich with a spatula for a few seconds and leave to cook for around 5 minutes or until golden.
•Flip the sandwich over and press down on the top with a spatula for a couple of seconds again. Leave to cook for a further 5 minutes, or until the outsides are golden and the cheese is melted.
