Celebrations like National Grilled Cheese Day bring attention to the humble cheese sandwich and give the cheese lovers around the world a reason to take this toasted creation up to the next level with gourmet recipes.
While cheese is a staple, grilled cheese sandwiches are being remixed with a range of new ingredient additions. For instance, creative chefs are whipping up seasonal creations with everything from savory pumpkins, turkey and cranberries to fruits like apples, blueberries and pineapple. Bread might seem like another essential ingredient to a grilled cheese sandwich, but there are also versions out there with crusts that have been successfully crafted from cauliflower, tater tots and ramen noodles.
Those with a love for grilled cheese and a desire to experiment will appreciate unconventional recipes like cheesy tomato soup bread loaves and soup shooters served with cheese sticks.
