Grilled Ham and Swiss on a Diet
Did you know that you don’t have to slather butter on your bread to get a nice grilled sandwich?
If you use non-stick cooking spray in your pan, you can put one side of a sandwich directly on the pan and it will brown nicely. Remove the sandwich, spray the pan again, and brown the other side. It’s soooo easy!
Since Easter is around the corner, ham will be plentiful and inexpensive. So, I thought it would be nice to try a super easy freezable recipe that will be great for using leftover ham. It’s simply ham and swiss cheese but includes a tasty low-fat sandwich spread.
Let me know what you think!

- 8 slices light bread
- 8 ounces ham (2 ounce per slice)
- 4 ounces swiss cheese slices (1 ounce per slice)
- cooking spray
- 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Heat pan on medium high heat. In a small bowl, combine sour cream, mustard, and garlic powder until well blended. Spread mixture on 4 slices of the light bread, then top with 2 ounces of ham, 1 ounce of swiss cheese, and another piece of bread. Reduce heat to medium and spray pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place sandwich on pan and heat until bread browns (about 3 minutes). Use spatula to remove sandwich from pan, spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray again and then flip the sandwich to brown other side (about 3 minutes).
Let sandwich cool. Place in pint size freezer bag to freeze. To serve: let sandwich defrost in refrigerator overnight. Heat 30 seconds in microwave.
