Yunk's Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

grilled_cheeseBy Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch Cooking for Kids and Cowboys- Paired with a steaming cup of Tomato Soup, this sandwich sets the stage for a classic American lunch. You may find the cooking method unconventional but, trust me, it tastes great!

Prep time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

8   Slices whole wheat bread
 
      Trans fat free margarine

4   Thick slices of soy American cheese or 
     American cheese at room temperature

8    Long thin slices of cucumber

Cooking time: Approximately 10 minutes

Spread both sides of each slice of bread generously with margarine. Heat a large stainless steel pan over medium-high heat.  When hot, add 4 slices of bread and grill for 1 minute on each side.  Remove the grilled bread and immediately cover with a slice of cheese and 2 slices of cucumber.  Grill the remaining 4 slices of bread in the same manner and top the cheese and cucumber with them.  The heat from the warm bread will naturally melt the cheese and keep the cucumber crispy.
