THE TASTIEST CHEESE TOASTIES TO MAKE & DEVOUR NOW!

What is the laziest dinner, apart from a takeaway of course? Well I would be tempted to say a bowl of cereal, but a close second in my mind are cheese toasties. I LOVE cheese on toast. It requires minimum effort, hardly any washing up, and it’s pretty tasty too − washed down with a cup of tea, in front of the telly of course.

I know, I know, everyone knows how to make cheese on toast. But here are three of my favourite toastie upgrades, just to mix it up a bit. Still no cooking required, just assembling! And a pretty tasty dinner offering I must say. You can always add a salad (ready made) if you must but I don’t, it’s a step too far in my book!
