National Grilled Cheese Day

National Grilled Cheese Day is a day we celebrate the delicious comfort food. The sandwich can be made using different types of cheese and different types of bread. There is no one way to make the sandwich. It is typically fried or toasted with butter on the outside bread until the cheese is melted. (Is your mouth watering yet?)
