Grilled Cheese and Asparagus Sandwich

Submitted by: A_MASSIE

Introduction

I love asparagus and I love grilled cheese, so why not merge the two into a delicious lunch? I love asparagus and I love grilled cheese, so why not merge the two into a delicious lunch?
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    8 small stalks asparagus (trimmed)
    2 slices cheese (your favorite, I used ultra thin provolone and swiss)
    Sprinkle Mrs. Dash, Garlic & Herb (or favorite)
    2 slices Aunt Millie's Light Whole Grain Bread or Aunt Millie's Light Potato Bread
    Pam spray

Tips

You can add any seasonings you like. A zesty mustard is also a nice add before cooking (if you like mustard, lol).

Tons of protein (over 15g) in one sandwich. Add a light tomato soup and you have a hearty lunch even the kids will love.


Directions

Dry roast asparagus in clean fry pan for a few minutes to bring out flavour and cook. Add Mrs. Dash to asparagus while cooking.

Assemble sandwich and grill until the cheese has melted and the bread is golden brown on both sides, use pannini grill or about 2-4 minutes per side.

Serving Size: makes 1 sandwich
