Happy National Grilled Cheese Day! We are sharing our favorite ways to spice up your typical grilled cheese into both sweet and savory dishes!

Switch Up The Bread

Instead of using plain old white or wheat bread, try a bread with a different flavor profile! We love sourdough, challah, or any specialty bread from your local bakery (jalapeno cheddar bread anyone?).

Add Some Veggies Or Fruits

Fruits and Veggies are the perfect way to add nutrients to your cheesy sandwich. Try spinach, roasted peppers, red onions, tomatoes, avocados, apples, or pears.

Use More Than One Cheese

Try using a variety of cheese in your sandwich! Mozzarella, cheddar, and monterey jack make for a great grilled cheese. If you just want to try a cheese other than American or cheddar, try brie or gouda for a creamy decadent flavor.

Add Meat

Bacon, ham, prosciutto, or buffalo chicken make a yummy addition to any grilled cheese. The extra protein will help fill you up and keep you satisfied all day.

Sauces And Jams Are Your Best Friends

One way to add a bunch of flavor to your grilled cheese is with sauces and jams. Blueberry jam is delicious with creamy cheeses, as is balsamic vinegar, pesto, or cranberry sauce.
