April 12th is GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH DAY! Now we know that most people are partial to a lovely, warm, gooey cheese sandwich but who knew it had its own special day to celebrate it’s importance in our lives?
Grilled cheese sandwich requires some basic ingredients, but it is one of the most popular comfort foods in the world.
Did you know that the very first grilled cheese sandwich was served as an open-face sandwich, but eventually it evolved into what we know today? Its thought that this staple meal has been around since the Roman times but it wasn’t until the 1920’s when sliced bread became more popular and readily available that the grilled cheese sandwich as we know it became a firm favorite for our nation.
Celebrate National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day on April 12 and don’t forget to make your favorite sandwiches for breakfast, lunch or dinner! You could always experiment and add other ingredients, but being creatures of habit…we think we will stick to what we know and indulge in a simple yet satisfying plain grilled cheese sandwich! Enjoy!
