Grilled Swiss With Avocado and Tomato Sandwich

Since Papa was diagnosed with diabetes I have been trying to find healthier recipes for the both of us. This recipe is from Weight Watchers. I have tweaked it a little because well, I can't go cold turkey on everything that has fat or sugar in it. That's just me.

I mean I already gave up Pepsi!!!

Here we go:

2 TBLS. mayonnaise or low-fat mayo (if you want to ruin it)
8 slices multi grain bread (I used 4)
4 slices Swiss cheese or low-fat cheese (again if you want to ruin it)
1/2 small avocado, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced
2 carrots, shredded (I used one)
2 cups, alfalfa sprouts ( I used one cup, I was surprised Papa would even eat them.)
1 tomato, cut into 8 slices

1. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons of the mayonnaise on each of the slices of bread, layer with Swiss cheese, avocado, carrots and alfalfa sprouts and 2 tomato slices.

2. Set a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Lightly spray pan with nonstick spray, I also added a tiny bit of butter. (Really just a tiny bit)
Place sandwich in pan. Cook, turning once until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted. Cut sandwich in half and serve at once.

This was delish, Papa even loved it!

I LOVE grilled swiss cheese sandwiches and anything with avacado and tomato I'm a fan of. So this all around is the perfect thing for me :)

Very informative post! Online privacy are a wide issue as
much ecommerce sites collect and retain personal data about customers.
Ecommerce site owners should provide a privacy policy and post it within the ecommerce website.

After you have privacy into position, make sure

This printer doesn't have a current pick change. It is offered as a 110 volt variation or a 220 volt model. To convert the printer from one model to the various other, you would certainly have to change both the power supply and the fuser. A minimum of it merely didn't electric up.
If you had actually relocated the printer in the opposite direction, it would most likely have gone bang and/or
tripped out the whole workplace.
