Savory Pumpkin Grilled Cheese

Makes 1 Serving

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
  • 1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light cheese
  • 2 dashes cayenne pepper, or more to taste
  • Dash black pepper
  • Dash of salt
  • 2 slices light bread
  • 1tsp butter, room temperature
  • 1 slice fat-free cheddar cheese


  1. Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove. Add onion and, stirring occasionally, cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. To the bowl, add pumpkin, cheese wedge, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and salt. Mix until smooth and set aside.
  3. Lay bread slices flat and evenly spread the upward-facing sides with a scant smear of butter.  Set aside.
  4. Re-spray skillet with nonstick spray and bring to medium-high heat on the stove. Gently place a slice of bread, buttered side down in the skillet.  Top with pumpkin mixture, followed by the slice of cheese. Place the other bread slice on top, buttered side up, and cook until lightly browned on the outside and hot on the inside, about 2 minutes per side, flipping carefully with a spatula.
