No matter how you slice it, grilled cheese sandwiches have been a staple in American households, college dorm rooms, and cozy diners since the first bowl of tomato soup felt lonely. To celebrate National Grilled Cheese Month and National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day on April 12th, Borden® Cheese has put together some fun tips and tricks to celebrate this easy, cheesy delicacy.
Cheese, If You Please
As the name suggests, cheese is the star of the show for this familiar favorite. American Singles are always a crowd pleaser, but for an even meltier grilled cheese you can opt for shredded cheese for a more even melt and that Instagram-worthy cheese pull. The new line of Thick Cut Shreds from Borden® Cheese were dreamt up with melting in mind, and add the perfect layer of creamy coverage to any sandwich.
Pack it with Protein
Looking for a more grown up take? Add protein and fresh veggies to your sandwich for a filling and balanced option that still tastes like mom used to make. With unlimited possibilities like this Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese or Turkey Bacon & Tomato Grilled Cheese, there’s no excuse not to eat a grilled cheese on April 12th.
Better without Butter?
The best part about the grilled cheese sandwich is its ability to be easily tweaked to your own taste, from mixing different cheese and flavors to switching up the bread. But have you ever considered ditching the butter? For years, some have sworn by frying their sandwiches in mayonnaise, not butter, to achieve that perfectly crispy, even cook, and slightly tangy flavor boost. If Martha Stewart does it, you know it has to be good!
