Grilled cheese sandwiches are an enjoyable, toasted pleasure popular all across the world. They even have their own holiday, Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, when it’s practically your duty to indulge in them.
The Ancient Romans were the first civilization to make a cooked bread and cheese sandwich, but many cultures have invented their own take on this ancient dish. In France, people enjoy Croque Monsieur (a grilled ham and cheese sandwich) while in Switzerland it is customary to melt the cheese and toast the bread separately before combining them. The classic American grilled cheese sandwich emerged in the 1920s when inexpensive cheese and affordable sliced bread became available. It is now a staple in cafés, diners, and school cafeterias across the country.
Who doesn’t love Grilled Cheese Sandwiches? Three ingredients only is what you will need to indulge today and you probably have them right in your home! No need to go shopping! Bread, cheese and butter make this gooey sandwich. You butter the outside of each piece of bread, and grill the bread while the cheese melts on top, put the two halves together are you are ready to indulge!
You don’t have to stop there, you can add more items to your sandwich, and build a bigger Grilled Cheese! Invite your friends to celebrate this comfort food, childhood favorite sandwich!
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches have come a long way since the beginning, we now add meats, other cheeses, tomatoes, avocados and even macaroni and cheese to this sandwich today!
My favorite Grilled Cheese is served on thick vegetable bread, layered with chesses (Colby jack, swiss, cheddar and Muenster) in between those masses of cheese you will find thick sliced peppered bacon! Melted cheese, crispy bacon and thick sliced grilled bread!!!
To celebrate National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, enjoy a grilled cheese sandwich cooked your favorite way and served with a side of tomato soup!
