Grab that healthy sandwich and go

1 2 3

As summer gives way to colder weather, many of us look to prepare healthy meals that still include fresh fruit and vegetables, foods that are healthy and high in nutrition. But it’s also that time when we would like to add to our diet a dash of healthy fat, a slice of hearty bread or something special. Why? Because, tasting great and nourishing the body is not the only job that food takes care of, it also has great influence our mood. So, when it’s lunchtime and you’re a bit tired and feeling blue, not to mention hungry, the solution is simple: make a sandwich. 

Hearty bread, flavorful cheeses and stellar fillings star in our three sandwiches that your family will love. They look great and taste even better especially if you’re allergic to gluten or you’re simply avoiding it since these bad-boys are Gluten Free:

Ham & Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese

Serves 4

Nonstick cooking spray

1 large onion very thinly sliced

Dash of salt

Dash of sugar

4 teaspoons spicy brown mustard

1 tablespoon prepared horseradish

2 teaspoons honey

12 slices low sodium ham (abut 6 ounces)

4 ounces Gruyere cheese

8 Three Bakers white bread whole grain 


•    Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add onion, sugar and salt to skillets; cover. Cook for 10 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally; remove from heat.

•    Stir together mustard, horseradish, and honey. Spread 4 slices bread evenly with mustard mixture, and then layer 3 slices ham over each piece of bread. Place about 2 tablespoons onion on top of the ham, and then place 1-ounce cheese on top of the onions. Place 4 remaining bread slices over cheese. 

•    Heat a nonstick skillet. Cook 2 minutes. Turn sandwiches over; cook 2 minutes more or until golden brown and cheese is melted.

Lunch is always easy.
