Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup sweet onion, sliced thinly
  • 4 slices reduced-calorie wheat bread
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup Gruyère cheese, shredded

Directions

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Add the onion; reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until tender and golden brown, about 8-10 minutes. Set aside.

Lay 2 slices of bread on a work surface and spread 1 teaspoon mustard on each slice. Top each slice with half of the onions and cheese and cover each slice with a second piece of bread.

Wipe the skillet clean and set over medium-low heat. Coat the sandwiches with cooking spray. Cook until the bottoms are browned, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip the sandwiches over and cook until browned on the other side and the cheese is melted, about 2 more minutes. Slice each sandwich in half and serve.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
