1. 2 slices of whole-grain bread (for added fiber)
  2. 2 oz (about 1/2 cup) of reduced-fat or part-skim shredded cheese (like reduced-fat cheddar or mozzarella)
  3. 1 tsp of olive oil or cooking spray
  4. Optional additions like thinly sliced tomatoes, spinach, or turkey bacon (remember to account for additional points)


  1. Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  2. While the skillet is heating, spread the cheese evenly over one slice of bread. Add any optional ingredients you like.
  3. Place the second slice of bread on top to make a sandwich.
  4. Lightly brush the outside of the sandwich with olive oil or use cooking spray to prevent sticking and promote browning.
  5. Place the sandwich in the heated skillet and cook until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, typically 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Carefully flip the sandwich and cook the other side until it’s golden brown and the cheese is fully melted.

The specific point value of the sandwich will depend on the ingredients you use and the portion sizes, as it varies in the Weight Watchers program. Always check the latest program guidelines for accurate point calculations.

Remember that the key to Weight Watchers is not only the type of food but also portion control, tracking your points, and overall healthy eating. You can customize your WW grilled cheese sandwich to fit your preferences while staying within your daily point budget.
