So of late I have been such a lazy cook. Yaani when I cook I just want to be out of my kitchen in the shortest time possible. Now this does not always work in my favour coz I also love good food. Many times if I make food that is not tasty I am most likely not going to eat it, I have also gotten the Mr into this bad habit so he also won’t eat and we end up looking for a whole new meal.

To avoid this scenerio I try my best to have quick go to dishes that can be whipped in a few minutes but also never disappoint. Grilled cheese sandwiches are one of these for me. I love how versatile they are. You can use whatever bread you have, whatever cold meats or left over meats you have, you can skip the meat all together and just use any cheese you have or even add veg. They take less than 5 mins to cook per sandwhich, isn’t that just an awesome dish?

Happy cooking!
