A Healthier Gluten-Free Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I hadn’t thought of making a healthier gluten-free grilled cheese until recently. A regular grilled cheese sandwich is just so simple already. The butter is easy to put on the bread, and it is definitely cheap, but I wanted to coat the bread in something not quite so…fattening. I had already used mayo before, so I got a little crazy and added olive oil to the skillet, warmed it up on medium heat, and coated both sides of each piece of bread with the olive oil. I then added the cheese as I normally would.

So, is this sandwich healthy? No. But it’s not as unhealthy as the normal thing. Maybe a better name for this post would have been “A Less Unhealthy Gluten-Free Grilled Cheese Sandwich”.
