A Healthy Lunch Recipe For Your Mid Workday Meal

A Healthy Lunch Recipe For Your Mid Workday Meal

Most of us have a busy lifestyle, which makes it easy for us to fall in the trap to grab something quick and cheap for lunch. Of course, "quick and cheap" usually means high-calorie and unhealthy. But if you've made a New Year's resolution to lose weight this year (or even if you haven't), we found a low-calorie grilled cheese sandwich recipe from CookingLight.com that might help you resist the urge to take the easy way out and get take-out for lunch.

Ingredients

Cooking spray
1 cup vertically sliced red onion
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp white cheddar cheese (such as Cracker Barrel)
8 (1 1/2-ounce) slices hearty white bread (such as Pepperidge Farm)
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
8 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato
6 slices center-cut bacon, cooked

Preparation

1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 1 cup onion and garlic; cook for 10 minutes or until tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally.

2. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese over each of 4 bread slices. Top each slice with 1/2 cup spinach, 2 tomato slices, 2 tablespoons onion mixture, and 1 1/2 bacon slices. Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons cheese; top with the remaining 4 bread slices.

3. Heat skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Place sandwiches in pan, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese melts.
