My Healthier Grilled Cheese & Ham Sandwich

Norma DeRemer


Had lunch with my neighbor again and guess what? This sandwich has always been a favorite of mine, but with trying to loose weight (THIS) ham & cheese will not put the pounds on your tighs as the regular good gooey fat-laden favorite we all love would. Her recipe stated that a regular grilled cheese and ham sandwish has 680 calories with 30 grams of fat. Well, guys and gals this beauty only has 337 calories and 10 grams of fat and if you omit the shredded cheese you will save another 60 more calories. It's a keep for me for sure.
