If you love grilled cheese, but are looking for a way to boost its health properties, this recipe is for you! I find it’s a very easy way to get Joey to eat his greens while enjoying one of his favorite foods.
2 slices 100% whole grain bread
1 Tbs olive oil based spread or butter
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or any cheese of your choice)
¼ cup kale, cooked, shredded
Spread butter/olive oil spread over one side of each slice of bread. In a large pan or skillet over medium heat, place one side of bread, buttered side down, into pan. Sprinkle ½ of cheese over bread, then place shredded kale on top. Next, cover the kale with the remaining cheese and place the second slice of bread on top (buttered side facing up). Allow bread to toast until golden brown, then flip sandwich and toast on the other side. Serve warm and enjoy!
