Yes, there really is a day devoted to grilled cheese sandwiches.
Annually celebrated on April 12, it is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. Listed in a reader’s opinion poll, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are among one of the top comfort foods in North America.
According to food historians, cooked bread and cheese is an ancient food, popular across the world in many cultures. The modern version of the grilled cheese sandwich originated in the 1920s when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became easily available. Originally it was made as an open-faced sandwich.
This year, it’s on a Sunday, so you’ll have time to swing in to Say Cheese Fromagerie and pick up some fresh and awesome cheese for that killer pile of grilled cheese sands you’re about to make.
And if you’re wanting to share the passion, you can even send a grilled cheese e-card.
Go get some!
