Celebrate National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day
Best. Sandwich. Ever.
Today is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich. If you ever happen to date me for some strange reason. Within 5 minutes of meeting my mother, she will no doubt bring up the fact that when I was little I would proudly proclaim that I only ate 9 things. One of those things was grilled cheese sandwiches. Despite the fact that I eat upwards of 26 things now, the grilled cheese sandwich is still a staple. Homemade. On a pan. A little too much butter. A little burnt so the cheese is super gooey. Eaten within 10 seconds of coming off the pan to ensure the contents do not settle.
While the sandwich with just cheese is still the gold standard, there are endless remixes. My favorites:
– Grilled Cheese with Bacon: Bacon makes everything better and grilled cheese is no different
– Grilled Cheese with Tomato: If you feel like convincing your brain your sandwich is kinda healthy
– Grilled Cheese with Bacon and Tomato: Your Brain – “Wow, this is healthy…no wait. Nevermind”
– Grilled Cheese with Buffalo Chicken: Not for the faint of heart.
