Spinach and Ricotta Waffled Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

You don't HAVE to use a waffle iron but my grandson's plain grilled cheese tasted better to him with waffle marks in it :-)

If you say so...

Since I had it out already, I used it for ours as well. 


  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/3 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 box (or less) frozen chopped spinach (thawed)
  • 2 tbsp. parmesan cheese
  • salt, pepper, Italian herbs to taste
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Bread - whatever makes your skirt fly up. I used white Italian bread. 
  • Reduced fat butter spread


  1. In a small skillet, saute the minced garlic in olive oil for about 30 seconds then move to a bowl. 
  2. Add the ricotta cheese, spinach, Parmesan cheese, salt/pepper, Italian herbs to the bowl and mix until combined. 
  3. Spread one side of the bread with butter. Divide the ricotta mixture in half and spread on the un-buttered sides of the bread, top with mozzarella cheese and then top with remaining bread. 
  4. Either use the skillet you sauteed the garlic in or the waffle iron (sprayed with cooking spray). 
  5. Cook, turning once, until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown. 
I served mine with a side salad to make me feel better!
