Today, we celebrate the delicious and simple sandwich that has become a favorite around the world. Whether you enjoy a classic grilled cheese sandwich with American or Swiss cheese, or go for something new and inventive, there’s sure to be a recipe that fits your taste.

In honor of this special day, we’ve put a list of the things you can do to celebrate this special day. Whether you’re planning a quick and easy lunch, or want to impress your friends with a more elaborate meal, grilled cheese sandwiches are the perfect way to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day!

What Makes a Perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich?

We all know what a grilled cheese sandwich is. It’s a delicious combination of two slices of bread, melted cheese, and butter, and then grilled until golden brown. But what makes a perfect grilled cheese sandwich?

Yet again, it depends on your preferences and tastes. Some people like their sandwiches on the crusty side, while others prefer a softer texture. The pieces of bread used in a grilled cheese sandwich can vary as well. Another important factor is the cheese that you choose to melt inside the sandwich. Some people prefer American cheese, while others like to use Swiss or Cheddar.

However, there are some criteria that we can agree on when talking about a perfect grilled cheese sandwich.


We recommend that you check the appearance of your sandwich before you start eating. A golden-brown crust and a melted cheese are signs of a good grilled cheese sandwich.

The look and presentation of your grilled cheese sandwich greatly affects your perception of its taste.


If the aroma of your grilled cheese sandwich is good, you can be sure that it will taste delicious. Keep in mind that the aroma of a grilled cheese sandwich can change depending on the ingredients you use.


The texture of your grilled cheese sandwich is another important factor. You want a soft, fluffy bread that melts in your mouth. However, you don’t want your bread to be so soft that it falls apart.


And of course, the flavor of your grilled cheese sandwich is the most important factor. You want a sandwich that is both savory and cheesy, and a combination of these two tastes is the best way to achieve a perfect grilled cheese sandwich.

How to Make a Grilled Cheese Sandwich

If you're a fan of grilled cheese sandwiches, then you might be wondering what's the best way to make it. Take a look at the basics and see for yourself. 

Step 1: Get the ingredients - Basically, you'll need bread, butter, and cheese. You can buy these ingredients in most grocery stores, and you can also make your own bread if you want. 

Step 2: Preheat the pan - To get a nice grilled cheese sandwich, you need to heat up the pan. The best way to do this is to preheat the pan over medium-low heat.

Step 3: Spread butter on the bread - Make sure you spread it evenly.

Step 4: Lay the bread on the hot pan, butter-side down - Take note of the sizzle. It should be nice and soft, not sounding angry and mad. 

Step 5: Add cheese and let it melt under the heat - Add cheese to the bread. You can use any type of cheese that you like. Most people prefer American cheese and Swiss cheese. 

Step 6: Put the other sandwich on top - Once you see that the cheese is mostly melted, you can then put the other sandwich on top. You can use a spatula to slightly flatten the bread. 

Step 7: Flip the sandwich - Put the sandwich in the pan and cook it until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted. Too much time in the pan can cause the bread to burn, so be careful.

Step 8: Serve - Enjoy your lovely creation! 

Of course, these steps are somewhat simplified. You can customize this recipe according to your preferences. For example, you can add bacon and ham to the sandwich for added fun!
