Now that school is in full swing, time is tight.  Sometimes you just have to go back to the basics.  I’ve always loved grilled cheese, and you know how much I like zucchini.  So I paired them to make a quick but satisfying sandwich.

I cut a small zucchini lengthwise into 4 slices, and sauteed them in a frying pan coated with cooking spray.


I put the sauteed zucchini between two slices of whole wheat bread, along with Cabot 50% Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese.  Using the same pan, I grilled the sandwich until it was golden brown.

  1. I thought you were going for the zucchini version of KFC’s double down…I was very interested to see how you’d use the zucchini as the ‘bread’…but then you made it so much better by actually adding some bread! Looks delicious!

  2. I’m such a fan of the pumped up Grilled Cheese… grilled cheese is such comfort food, but some nights you feel like you need a little more. Adding the zucc is great idea. I’m a fan of sauteed apples too 😉

  3. What a great idea. I’m adding this to my go-to list of quick suppers!
