Skinny Grilled Cheese with Avocado and Tomato


Skinny Grilled Cheese with Avocado and Tomato
Simple is sensational with this delicious, healthy, grilled cheese sandwich! The avocado really adds a wonderful buttery flavor. It’s terrific for a quick lunch or dinner. I’ve even enjoyed it for breakfast! One grilled sandwich has 245 calories, 11 grams of fat and 7 Blue WW Freestyle SmartPoints, and 7 Green. Each sandwich is packed with 6 grams of fiber!

Shopping Tips

I used Jarlsberg Lite (reduced-fat Swiss cheese) and found it at Trader Joe’s. Many supermarkets sell this type of cheese. Or use ¾ oz of your favorite reduced-fat cheese, sliced or shredded.
