Sweet Potato-Cheddar Grilled Cheese
Not many are fond of potato and cheese together. The ones who do would just ridicule their dead taste buds but it really isn’t a popular choice. That’s why you never get potato on a pizza.

So here’s a recipe that involves the sweeter version of the tuber, The Sweet Potato.

It is filling and you don’t need an array of spices to make it flavourful. Go on and make it!

Grilled Cheese and Fruit Sandwich
Cheese and Jam. No, hear us out. Don’t storm off because you cannot picture yourself eating it. It works with certain types of cheeses. It works with thin shavings of Monterey Jack Cheese and Plum Jam. And the type of bread plays a significant role here. Don’t awaken your health conscious self and use whole-grain bread, you cow.
