UltimateMama believes Grilled Cheese sandwiches are completely underrated.  They are simple to make and have terrific nutritional value.  UltimateMama loves easy grilled cheese recipes!

Here is what UltimateMama's children (ages 1 and 3) had for lunch today:

3 year old:  Grilled ham & white cheddar cheese sandwich, peas, apple slices, milk, water

1 year old: Grilled white cheddar cheese sandwich, little pieces of ham, peas, golden raspberries, milk, water

Easy Grilled Ham & White Cheddar Cheese Sandwich recipe for one sandwich: 

-  2 thinly sliced pieces of bread

– thinly sliced ham (1 slice)

– thinly sliced white cheddar cheese (1 slice)

– Smart Balance spread (about 1 tablespoon)

Pre-heat a griddle, skillet, or frying pan.  Take a knife and spread the Smart Balance on one side of each slice of bread.  Put one of the "buttered" slices of bread on the skillet.  Then put a a thin slice of white cheddar cheese on top.  Next, add a thin slice of ham and cover with the remaining slice of bread ("buttered" side up).  When you notice the cheese starting to melt and the bread starting to brown, flip the sandwich over and finish grilling. 

**For a fun variation add a slice of tomato for extra nutrients and color!
