“I found this on a food blog that promised healthy meals that were ready in 12 minutes or less. This takes about 12 minutes from start to finish. The sour/sweet from the Granny Smith apple contrasts perfectly to the sharpness of the cheddar for a pleasing lunch. Add a slice or two of turkey lunch meat for some extra flavor. I've also replaced the butter that is usually used for grilling with cooking spray to save some calories.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Between 2 slices of whole-grain bread, layer 1 to 2 slices sharp cheddar cheese and green apple slices.
  2. Spread one slice of the bread with deli mustard.
  3. Spray top of sandwich with non-stick cooking spray. Place it in the pan to grill with this side down. Spray the "new" top of the sandwich with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Grill in a nonstick pan for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or cook in a panini press until cheese is melted.
