Did You Know? Wednesday April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Day

In our house, it’s National Grilled Cheese Day every day, just ask my son!

Grilled cheese sandwiches are one of the easiest, tastiest types of sandwiches to make; however, I had no idea how creative you can get.

I recently chatted with Mackenzie Smith from GrilledCheeseSocial.com about the many ways to make your grilled cheese sandwich more adventurous.

MacKenzie Smith is the sandwich expert for About.com; her work has appeared on Martha Stewart, Real Simple Magazine, Buzzfeed, Thrillist, Eater, Huffington Post, Refinery 29, Spoon University, local television shows and more. She was also recently named one of Refinery29’s Top 10 NYC Food Instagrams to Follow and was one of Thrillist’s 24 NYC Instagrams You Need To Follow Right Now.

Check out our quick interview:

Mackenzie swears by the three B’s when you are crafting your next grilled cheese sandwich:

  • Base – the bread folks! Try Sara Lee
  • Butter – don’t skimp! full fat and salty, YUM!
  • Blend – the delicious inside, be creative yet complimentary

I took to the internet and did a quick poll on my Facebook Page and the responses were a mix of both traditionalists and adventurists:

Mackenzie was impressed with you all!

I’m not one to venture off of the basic cheddar grilled cheese path, but Mackenzie enticed me with a few recipes for my next grilled cheese sandwiches that I think I will love! Did somebody say bacon?

If these recipes don’t make you get in that kitchen right now…I Just. Don’t. Know about you! 😉
