Yogurt Bread Grilled Cheese with Bacon & Tomato

I love grilled cheese, but I rarely have it, since the average grilled cheese has some mondo calories. But, I've gotten good at making tasty things lower calorie or healthier, so I have it a go.

Using the pizza dough recipe, I've started making bread-sized disks for a lower cal bread. It doesn't save a ton of calories (10-20 depending on your white bread brand), but it tastes better to me.



1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup self-rising flour
2 Tbsp. reduced fat Mexican cheese
2 Tbsp. reduced fat mozzarella
2 slices reduced sodium bacon
1 small tomato (a small roma, about 1.5 oz.)
2 Tbsp. spaghetti sauce
  1. Combine yogurt and flour, and then knead into handle-able dough.
  2. Separate, and roll into 2 disks, about hand sized.
  3. In a small pan, fry up your bacon.  I recommend cutting it in half first.
  4. When bacon is done, drain on paper towels and drain grease.  Wipe pan down.
  5. Cook dough disks one at a time in pan, until each side is slightly golden.  Don't go all the way, since you'll be tossing it in again.
  6. Remove dough, and layer with cheese, bacon, tomato, and cheese before tossing the other on top.
  7. Carefully put into same pan keeping the cheese in.  Cook one side.
  8. Carefully flip, and cook other side until both sides golden and cheese melty.  Remember, reduced fat cheese doesn't usually completely melt.
  9. Cut in half, and serve with 2 Tbsp. of your favorite spaghetti sauce warmed for dipping.  I used Prego 3 Cheese because I have some leftover from a dinner thin.
