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.
