Today is the day. The day when you can overindulge on your wildest, cheesiest dreams. It’s National Grilled Cheese Day, and I am your Gouda Guide to all things grilled cheese. Here are four different sandwiches you can make to celebrate:


The Traditional Grilled Cheese

Ah, yes. When you think of grilled cheese, you think of American Cheese Kraft Singles and bread. This is the tried-and-true. If you want to stick to your roots, treat yourself with the Traditional Grilled Cheese and some tomato soup.

The Pizza Grilled Cheese

To recreate this masterpiece, all you need is some pepperoni, pizza cheese mix, bread and butter. You can have some bonus points if you get your cheese to string like ours.

The Mac and Cheese Grilled Cheese

 You may look at this and say, “Uh no.” However, you should be saying, “YES! YES!” The Mac and Cheese Grilled Cheese may even rival the Traditional Grilled Cheese. It is really just that good. (Tip: make your mac and cheese before you put it on the sandwich.)

You can’t have a good meal without dessert!

The Blueberry and Brie Grilled Cheese

I’ll be real. Brie is some fancy cheese that may not belong on such a simple sandwich, but your tastebuds will be thanking you after you make yourself this grilled cheese. It is the perfect dessert to end National Grilled Cheese Day.

National Grilled Cheese Day is a day to bask in the wonderful and simple sandwich that pairs so well with soup. Grilled cheese has been there for you when you were sick or when there was just simply nothing else in the fridge to cook. Today and everyday be thankful for grilled cheese.

Sorry, was that last bit a little cheesy?  😉
