Not Your Mother's Grilled Cheese

After a few weeks of complete insanity in which I can't remember how and where life has taken me, quick and cheap comfort food always helps me get back into the routine of things again. But rather than indulging in comfort food that usually leaves me feeling guilty and ballon-esque, this twist on the classic grilled cheese is the perfect solution.

2 slices light whole wheat bread (80 cals per 2 slices was used)
1 oz pepperjack cheese (shredded)
5 slices light turkey lunch meat
1 tbsp green olive tapenade
1 tbsp fat free mayo
Can't Believe It's Not Butter 0 Cal Spray

Spray one side of both slices of bread with 0 cal butter spray
After placing one slice of bread in medium heat frying pan (butter side down), top with 1/2 oz of shredded cheese and all 5 slices of turkey meat
Top with remaining pepperjack cheese
Then place remaining slice of bead, which has been spread with both tapenade and mayo, on top
Leave on low-medium heat and cover for 3 minutes
Once on side is crispy and brown, flip and cover for another 3 minutes

Enjoy your meaty grilled cheese
