Late to the Party: National Grilled Cheese Day

So I know I’m 3 days late to this amazing day, but Friday, April 12th was National Grilled Cheese Day…and I didn’t even have grilled cheese.

Oh this looks delicious.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a decent grilled cheese sandwich. The grilled cheese here in the dining halls just don’t put enough cheese and can’t produce the results I’m looking for.

This is a recipe I’ve always wanted to try…

  • Texas Toast
  • Pepper jack cheese
  • American cheese
  • Provolone cheese
  • Mayo

I’m a huge fan of Texas toast and I think it’s the best bread when it comes to making a nice juicy grilled cheese. The nice puffy texture of the toasted Texas toast is just unbeatable.

I’ve always gone with mayonnaise instead of butter when I make my grilled cheese. I think it gives any grilled cheese an extra point.

Some people put ham in their grilled cheese, but then it’s more of a sandwich…


  1. Apply mayonnaise to both sides of the bread.
  2. Put one piece of toast on the hot skillet.
  3. Apply cheeses on top of the slice of bread.
  4. Place other piece of bread (with mayonnaise on both sides) on top of the cheeses.
  5. Cook until the cheese begins to melt and the bottom bread is golden brown.
  6. Flip the sandwich and remove once golden brown color achieved.
  7. Voila.

Do you make your grilled cheese differently? Is there a better way to do this that I’m missing out on? Let me know down below!
