Goat Cheese and Strawberry Grilled Cheese
Spread 1 (4-oz.) goat cheese log, softened, on 1 side of 3 whole grain bread slices. Spread 4 1/2 tsp. red pepper jelly on 1 side of 3 whole grain bread slices; layer with 3/4 cup sliced fresh strawberries, 6 large basil leaves, and 1 1/2 cups fresh watercress or arugula. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Top with remaining bread, goat cheese sides down. Cook sandwiches in a large, lightly greased nonstick skillet over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
And if you just can't give up that gooey cheese goodness, here is a great grownup grilled cheese from springpadit using only one bread slice. It's not really low on carbs, but a pretty healthy choice.
The Oregano Open Faced Grilled Cheese
4 slices multigrain bread, lightly toasted
8 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese (1 ounce
2 plum tomatoes, cut into 16 thin slices
1 teaspoon Oregano Leaves
Top the lightly toasted bread with the cheese, tomatoes, and oregano and place under broiler until cheese has melted.
