As consumers seek out carb-free alternatives of their favorite foods, this grilled cheese dish by lifestyle blog Real Food by Dad offers an equally delicious and crispy alternative that uses vegetables instead of bread. The Waffled Tater Tot Grilled Cheese maintains a cheesy centre topped with crispy potatoes to recreate the popular comfort food sandwich.

The sandwich is made using a large amount of tater tots that are smashed together in a waffle iron. With the added heat, the potatoes will come together to form a crust that will act as a carb-free bread replacement that will hold the sandwich together. Layered onto the potatoes is gooey Fontina cheese along with another layer of smashed tater tots.

The substitution of vegetables for grains replicates the comfort food aspect of this recipe which slightly healthier ingredients.
