April 12th is my Birthday!! How did I not know this until now?! I love grilled cheese!! It's like one of my favorite foods!
What I Love: Grilled Cheese!
I am thrilled that there is a whole month dedicated to this awesome snack! In addition, April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Day! Today is the day to create your own melty, yummy concoction of cheese and whatever else you can think of!
Grilled cheese, in its traditional form is most certainly my favorite, but there are also TONS of ways to spice it up. See how you can take your grilled cheese to the next level!
Three-Cheese Grilled Cheese
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
8 slices sourdough bread
4 slices cheddar cheese (about 3 ounces)
4 slices Swiss cheese (about 3 ounces)
4 slices American cheese (about 3 ounces)
Spread the butter on one side of each bread slice. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Put 2 bread slices in the skillet, buttered-side down. Layer a slice each of cheddar, Swiss and American cheese on each piece of bread, then cover with another bread slice, buttered-side up.
Cook, pressing the sandwiches occasionally with a spatula, until the cheese melts and the bread is golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Repeat to make 2 more sandwiches. Slice each sandwich diagonally in half, then return to the hot pan, cut-side down, to create a crust on the cheese. – FamilyFreshCooking
