Monterey jack cheese with jalapeno peppers 1 1/2 Ounce , thinly sliced
Tomato slices 3
Avocado 1 Ounce , pared and thinly sliced
Alfalfa sprouts 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)

Directions

MAKING

1) Arrange the cheese, tomato, avocado and sprouts onto 1 slice of the bread. Top with the remaining bread slice.

2) With non-stick cooking spray, spray a small non-stick skillet.

3) In the skillet, place the prepared sandwich, cover and cook over moderate-high heat till the bottom has browned lightly. This takes about 3 minutes.

4) Turn the sandwich over very carefully and cook the other side till it is light brown as well and the cheese has melted. This will take another 3 minutes.

SERVING

5) Serve the sandwich hot, with a light salad on the side if preferred. Makes a good and nutritious snack that is also quick and easy to cook.
