April 12 was National Grilled Cheese Day, but if you missed it, don’t worry.  We have a whole month to celebrate this gooey, savory concoction as April is National Grilled Cheese Month! 

What is it about a couple of slices of cheese melted between two pieces of toast that makes your mouth water and at the same time make you feel like a kid again?  The classic grilled cheese sandwich isn’t just a slice of Velveeta between two pieces of white bread anymore.  You can do so much more with it!  The best thing about grilled cheese is that it’s so easy even the inner-kid in you can do it.  All you need is bread, cheese and any other ingredient to put your own little twist on it.  The possibilities are endless!

One of my personal favorites is with caramelized onions, bacon and cheddar and pepper jack cheese all on buttery Texas toast.  In my quest to find the perfect grilled cheese, I’ve come across some incredibly appetizing recipes.  Take a look for yourself.
