It's okay not to make a complicated, time-consuming meal every night (no matter how great it might be) in the same way that it's perfectly fine to have just a sandwich for dinner. But don't let this spicy mustard greens grilled cheese fool you; this sandwich is a special one. In fact, it's so special that we'd pick this for dinner (or any other meal, for that matter) time and again given the choice. These local and organic mustard greens bring forth a peppery bite that cuts through the creamy, melty, pully cheese so beautifully it feels like a symphonic match made in foodie paradise.
