About the Holiday

National Grilled Cheese Day celebrates that great comfort food that's a combination of gooey melting cheese that's between two slices of buttery toast also known as a grilled cheese sandwich or cheese toastie. This sandwich may date all the way back to the ancient Romans as they were the first civilization to eat cooked bread and cheese sandwiches. Processed cheese and inexpensive bread became poplar in the 1920s and so emerged the grilled cheese sandwich.

There are many different ingredients you can use to make a unique grilled cheese sandwich. Below are just a few ideas. Often the sandwich is accompanied with a cup of tomato soup.

  • American Cheese (most common) add tomato or bacon
  • Mozzarella and pepperoni
  • Pepper Jack and jalapeno peppers
  • Brie and Lingonberry
  • Pimento cheese or cheddar cheese
  • Swiss cheese with mushrooms
