Grown-Up Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
A new take on a familiar favorite pairs grilled cheese with a BLT for a luscious veggie-packed sandwich that feels like an indulgence. We use center-cut bacon to cut down on fat, and spinach gives this meal a boost of fiber, folate, and vitamins, C, E, and K. Serve with zesty dill pickle spears. If you have extra room in your budget, pair with a sweet-tart hard cider for adults or apple juice for kids.
