National Grilled Cheese Day: 10 Irresistible Recipes

Grilled cheese, if you ask me, is the king of all sandwiches. There is no wrong time to make a grilled cheese. They are the ultimate comfort food and can be made in hundreds of different ways. Some days I find myself craving the classic grilled cheese, white bread, and american cheese (made on the stove NOT in a toaster oven). Other days, when I’m feeling more adventurous, I dabble in the art of sandwich making and my ingredients usually include sourdough, brie cheese (or cheddar), and fruit. In honor of National Grilled Cheese Day, we’ve come up with a list of ten of the most mouth-watering grilled cheese recipes the world has ever seen. Check out our favorites:

  1. If I could still eat cheese and bread, I would ADOREEEE the opportunity to go nuts with grilled cheese sandwiches. I used to love them straight up with ketchup, but these days, I feel like throwing some bacon and sun-dried tomatoes in there would be outrageously good!
