Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwiches

recipe
You can use other cheeses in place of the Swiss and Cheddar, but keep the blue cheese because of the sharp flavor and crumbly texture it contributes to the mixture. The carbo rating will remain the same, no matter which cheeses you use. Because of all the cheese, this sandwich provides about one-third of your daily calcium requirement.

1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1 tablespoon finely chopped green onions
8 (1-ounce) slices low-carb multigrain bread

Preparation

1. Preheat griddle.
