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!
