I spread a piece of bread with mustard, place some thinly sliced tomato on the bread and cover the tomato with cheese. Then, I put it on a cookie sheet and grill it under the broiler. It is really good.

I USE BOARS LOW FAT LOW SALT CHEESE---- OR SARGENTO LOW FAT CHEESE --- I PUT SMART BALANCE LOW SODIUM SPREAD ON THE INSIDE OF THE BREAD AND TOAST IT IN THE TOASTER OVEN. DELICIOUS AND NUTRITIOS. I ONLY USE 1 OR 2 SLICES OF CHEESE AND SOMETIMES 1 SLICE OF TOMATO.

I like to use greek cheese, called "feta", there is also a low-fat version available at major retailers, grocery stores worldwide. Also an Italian cheese called "tomini" or "formaggella",or fantastic Swiss cheeses are made freshly in the alpine regions, genuine flavor and theyare very nutrient,not so expensive, no additional coloring agents, or preservatives in them at all.
I like to cook them on a hot stone, or a grill, just toss and turn them around quick-n-easily!
Then decorate the plate w/ some rucula leaves, cherrry tomatoes, some sesame seeds, squeeze of a lemon and extra virgin olive oil.
How about that? Like it?

Do not use butter on outside of bread to grill. Use low fat mayo instead. It browns even more beautifully and is not greasy at all. You cannot taste the mayo once the sandwich is browned, so you should use it even if you do not like mayo. Paula Dean uses this method. I don't think she uses any butter at all on the sandwich. It doesn't need it

Taste texture is a big roasen why they do this. It's healthier to toast it dry with no butter on one side, add your cheese, then toast the outside on a lightly buttered grill or griddle or pan. The cheese has more than enough oil in it already.
