Ingredients

1 stick light string cheese

1 cup diced sweet onion

Dash each salt and black pepper

1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese

2 slices light bread

2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)

Directions

Break string cheese into thirds and place in a blender or food processor -- blend at high speed until shredded. (Or pull into shreds and roughly chop.)

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-low heat. Add onion, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stirring frequently, cook until caramelized, about 20 minutes.

Transfer caramelized onion to a medium bowl. Add cheese wedge, and stir until softened and mixed. Stir in shredded string cheese.

Evenly top one bread slice with the onion-cheese mixture. Top with the other bread slice. Spread the top of the sandwich with 1 tsp. butter.

Clean skillet. Re-spray and bring to medium-high heat. Place sandwich in the skillet, buttered side down. Spread the top with remaining 1 tsp. butter.

Cook until bread is lightly browned and cheese has melted, about 2 minutes per side, flipping carefully. Dig in!
