Tomorrow is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day! We know your hesitation in celebrating such a gluttonous holiday. But here are a few “healthy” reasons we think you should:

  1. Cheese is a good source of calcium. Hello??
  2. Wheat contains fiber and fiber smooths the rough edges.
  3. You can add veggies to your grilled cheese and we all know how healthy veggies are!
  4. Add a protein like bacon or lobster or roast beef - can’t get enough iron now, can’t you?
  5. National Grilled Cheese Day happens only once a year and comfort food is good for the soul.

How are you planning to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day?

When it comes to making a great grilled cheese, the most critical element is establishing that perfect melty, texture of the cheese. It can be tricky to determine the best way to melt your cheese since different varieties melt in different ways and at different temperatures. Here’s a quick overview to help you maneuver through the many different ways cheeses melt.
