Healthy Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipes You'll Love

Buttery grilled cheese sandwich may not be the healthiest thing in the world. But with a few modifications, you can make this treat a whole lot healthier and guilt-free. Vegan grilled cheese sandwich is the perfect lunch to whip up if you're craving for something cheesy but you're watching your weight.

 

Cauliflower Crusted Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (Kirbie's Cravings)

If you're trying to keep away from white bread or carbs as a whole, this Cauliflower Crusted Grilled Cheese Sandwich from Kirbie's Cravings is the recipe you've been waiting for. The "bread" is actually cauliflower crumbs mixed with egg and shaped into rectangles to resemble bread. If you want to further reduce calories in this recipe, you may opt for feta or low-calorie Mozzarella. 

"This is a great low carb solution that still allows you to enjoy a comforting grilled cheese sandwich. Yes, we’re still eating a ton of cauliflower at home. We also eat a lot of grilled cheese sandwiches, so this combines the best of both worlds."

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into small florets and stem removed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp Italian herb seasoning
  • 2 thick slices of white cheddar cheese
