Kids in the Kitchen - Veggie Healthy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2
A healthy approach to grilled cheese with veggies sneakily added!
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 2 cups chopped veggies (I used carrots and peppers)
  • 1 tsp. of each - ground mustard, pepper, seasoned salt, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika
  • Butter or margarine spread
  1. Steam the veggies in a pot on the stove (time depends on the vegetables - for carrots it takes 10 to 15 minutes).
  2. While the veggies steam, butter one side of each piece of bread.
  3. Mash up veggies or chop in a food processor
  4. Spread the veggies with a knife on the non-buttered side of the bread.
  5. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the veggies, or mix in a bowl with the veggies.
  6. Add ½ of the spices on top of the cheese and form slices into a sandwich.
  7. Saute in a skillet for 3 minutes on each side.
