On this National Grilled Cheese Day, we salute the greatest sandwich to have been created from the simplest of ingredients. Throwing various melted cheese in between delicious types of bread, somewhere along the way, the grilled cheese sandwich was invented. These days, with all the options of cheese – whether it is cheddar, muenster, Swiss, mozzarella, goat cheese, Monterey jack, gouda, gruyere, or brie, Cheshire, Gloucester, or good old American cheese – there is no wrong way to create a grilled cheese sandwich.
