HUNGRY GIRL ALERT! This flavor-packed, cheesed-up sandwich is an absolute MUST-TRY! Instant classic...
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)
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!
