    Paneer Grilled Cheese Sandwich With Sweet Corn

    What is your favorite quick breakfast recipe? Mine are oats and sandwiches, both are filling and can be prepared rather quickly. I make a lot of sandwiches for breakfast, usually I just add some tomatoes, onions, avocados to my whole wheat bread and eat it and that hardly takes me 10 minutes. However there are days when I want to make a special sandwich like this Grilled Apple Peanut Butter Sandwich or this Veggie Grilled Cheese Sandwich and today’s recipe is an addition to that list.

    This paneer (Indian cottage cheese) and sweet corn sandwich is delicious, so filling and doesn’t require much work. The only thing which you should already have in your refrigerator and ready to be used is grated paneer. I make my own paneer at home, it’s easy to make plus that way I get to eat organic paneer which I otherwise don’t find at Indian stores here. Like I mentioned earlier, this sandwich is so filling, I ate 1 for lunch and was not hungry till dinner time!

    * You can cut down or increase the quantity of butter to taste and preference. Although I would like to mention that butter helps in grilling the breads nicely. So if you want those crispy grilled sandwiches, use more butter.

    * I used a grill pan for these sandwiches, you can grill them in a normal pan or use a sandwich maker.

    * Use any bread of your choice, I used whole wheat.
