the art of the grilled cheese

A melt-in-your-mouth grilled cheese sandwich really only requires a few ingredients: good bread, some flavorful cheese, and butter (or mayo).

The debate is still out on the butter versus mayo method, but truth be told, you can't go wrong.

Classic grilled cheese is celebrated for a reason—it's delicious and it triggers those senses that remind us of childhood: the greasy, crisp bread between our fingers, the velvety melted slices slowly pulling apart, and the simple excitement over that special treat. But sometimes it's fun to get fancy. In honor of National Grilled Cheese Day, we've rounded up some of our favorite creative takes on everyone's favorite sandwich.
