Tips / Other

National Grilled Cheese Day is today, April 12, and if you’re sick of the standard toasted bread and melted cheese, we have some suggestions for you.


Experiment with add-ons. Small toppings and spices could be just enough to satisfy you. In the past, I used crushed red pepper and garlic to add a kick to my sandwiches. Experimenting with spreads is another great way to change up the flavor profile without adding too much to the experience. Make sure to experiment with the types of cheese you use, as well. It is tough to make simple American cheese exciting.


If you want to add some actual ingredients without taking away the vegetarian-friendly nature of a grilled cheese, consider adding veggies. A few well-placed jalapenos have the potential to kick up the sandwich without adding too much bulk. Similarly, onions, green peppers and mushrooms can bulk it up.


If you have absolutely no reservations about what you add, the options expand exponentially. Add some pepperoni, sausage or taco meat to change the way the sandwich functions on a basic level. If you don’t mind playing with the definition of what a grilled cheese actually is, add buffalo chicken, French fries and other bulky supplements to really push the envelope.


If you want to celebrate the day without grilling your own cheese, look for a local grilled cheese restaurant and indulge.
