Hungry Girl's Pumpkin Grilled Cheese

“My cousin sent me this recipe from the Hungry Girl's 300 Under 300 book. It's obscene how good it was!!!!! I can't get over it! I didn't have Laughing Cow cheese wedges, so I put in a tbsp of sour cream instead, and used 2 light swiss cheese slices instead of the cheddar. **Note: This will make it a little more messy; I think the cheese wedge is to hold the form better.**”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove. Add onion and, stirring occasionally, cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
  2. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. To the bowl, add pumpkin, cheese wedge, cayenne pepper, and black pepper.
  4. Mix until smooth and set aside.
  5. Lay bread slices flat and evenly spread the upward-facing sides with butter. Flip slices over and evenly top one slice with pumpkin mixture, followed by the slice of cheese.
  6. Place the other bread slice on top, buttered side up.
  7. Set aside.
  8. Re-spray skillet with nonstick spray and bring to medium-high heat on the stove.
  9. Gently place sandwich in the skillet and cook until lightly browned on the outside and hot on the inside, about 2 minutes per side, flipping carefully with a spatula.
