  • 1 large onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon  sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 4 teaspoons  spicy brown mustard
  • 3 teaspoons  horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons  honey
  • 8 slices light whole-wheat bread (such as Pepperidge Farms)
  • 12 slices (about 6 ounces) light ham (such as Healthy Ones)
  • 4 slices (about 4 ounces) low-fat Swiss Cheese (such as Alpine Lace)
  • 4 cups  mixed greens (optional)


1. Coat a medium-size nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add onion, sugar and salt to skillet; cover. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until lightly browned; remove from heat.

2. Stir together mustard, horseradish and honey; set aside.

3. Spread 4 slices of bread evenly with mustard mixture, then layer 3 slices ham over each piece of bread. Place about 2 tablespoons onions on top of the ham, then place 1 slice cheese on top of the onions. Place 4 remaining bread slices over cheese.

4. Spritz both sides of sandwich with nonstick cooking spray and cook in a nonstick skillet over medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until cheese has melted, turning halfway through. Serve with mixed greens on the side, if desired.
