Skinny Grilled Ham and Cheese French Toast for a Quick Weeknight Dinner

Skinny Grilled Ham and Cheese French Toast for a Quick Weeknight Dinner

This delicious, quick to prepare dinner is not at all like a typical grilled ham and cheese.  It’s very tasty with thin slices of dill pickle and mustard added, plus dipped into a buttermilk and egg batter before grilling.  A French toast of sorts.  It’s skinny due to using a fiber rich whole wheat bread, reduced-fat cheese, ham without nitrites and grilling in reduced-fat butter.  One sandwich has 367 calories, 10 grams fat, 9 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS and 11 grams of fiber! Serve with a salad or cup of mixed berries. This sandwich is fantastic!
