It doesn’t matter how old you are—nothing beats an ooey, gooey grilled cheese. That said, there’s nothing wrong with making a few updates—especially that upgrade it into a healthy dinner.

This grown-up grilled cheese uses a pre-made cauliflower crust that in addition to being gluten-free and keto-friendly, packs an extra serving of veggies and contains just 80 calories. Plus, it “adds a nice crunch while allowing the sandwich to stay chewy on the inside,” notes recipe developer and Well+Good video producer Ella Dove.

The only tricky part is defrosting the cauliflower crust, she says. “Mine cracked the first time I tried it, so I recommend cutting the crust into quarters with a sharp knife and then popping it in the oven for a quick defrost before using it.”

Adding grainy mustard and avocado to classic cheddar cheese elevates the childhood favorite for a more sophisticated palette (and adds more nutrients). Make it on a rainy day or any time you want to satisfy a comfort food craving. Scroll down to watch a video to see how it's done and to get the recipe.
