Grilled cheese sandwiches are a delicious, toasted delight 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.

Melting cheese on top of bread is a culinary concept that has been around since the time of the Romans, but grilled cheese sandwiches as we know them didn’t become popular until the 1920s. Due to the ready availability of cheese and sliced bread, they became an American staple, but also spread around the world.

Naturally, the best way to celebrate Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day is to make and eat a grilled cheese sandwich. All you need is bread, cheese and butter, although you can experiment by adding more ingredients of your choice. You butter the outside of each piece of bread, and grill the sandwich while the cheese melts on top. Delicious!

I love a grilled cheese on homemade bread with gruyere and prosciutto. Instead of using butter to top the bread use mayonnaise. Has a much higher burning Point so you get a better grill!

Oh my word. Just read comic “Blondie” and first I ever heard of this day. I put mustard on inside slice and peanut butter on outside. DELICIOUS.
