Grilled Cheese with Turkey and Arugula


  • 8 slices thinly sliced, whole-wheat bread
  • 4 slices low sodium turkey deli meat
  • 2 cups arugula or baby spinach leaves
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced part skim mozzarella
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • non-stick cooking spray


  • Spread 1 tablespoon of the honey mustard on 4 slices of bread. Top those slices with turkey, arugula or spinach, then cheese. Press the remaining slices of bread on top of the cheese.
  • Coat a large skillet with cooking spray and warm over medium heat. Add half the butter. When the butter is melted transfer the sandwiches to a skillet and cook for 2 to 4 minutes on one side until golden. Spread the top of the sandwiches with the remaining butter and flip. Cook and additional 2 to 4 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the filling is hot. Transfer the sandwiches to a cutting board and cut in half or into quarters. Serve immediately.
