National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day: Enjoy an ooey gooey gourmet grilled cheese ‘wich

If you're in the mood for food, go grab your fork! April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, also known as National Grilled Cheese Day. But whatever you call it, today celebrates one of the most popular sandwiches in America.

Enjoyed for centuries, these tasty sandwiches typically are made with three simple ingredients - slices of cheese layered between two slices of buttered bread. While the origins of this annual food holiday are unknown, grilled cheese sandwiches are simple to make and delicious to eat. And when it comes to comfort food, nothing quite hits the spot like an ooey, gooey grilled cheese sandwich.

Whether you prefer yours the old-fashioned way or prefer a gourmet-style ‘wich, today is the perfect day to fire up the ole’ cast iron skillet and get your grilled cheese on!

April 12 is also National Licorice Day and National Only Child Day.
