Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 Servings

- 4 tsp grainy mustard
- 3 TB minced shallot
- 1 TB minced dill pickle

- ¾ cup shredded low fat sharp cheddar cheese
- Butter-flavored cooking spray
Combine cream cheese, mustard, shallot, and pickle in a small bowl. Spread mixture evenly across one side of all slices of bread.
