Cheese. Bread. Butter. These three ingredients create the trifecta for a terrific grilled cheese sandwich. But grilled cheese is really an open canvas for creativity.

To celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day on April 12th--or just to acknowledge your love for this ultimate comfort food--here are four ideas to showcase this cheesy and delicious sandwich.

Breakfast - Good Morning Grilled Egg and Cheese Sandwich

Breakfast Grilled Cheese


Bread - Wheat bread
Butter - Salted sweet cream butter
Cheese - Sliced American cheese
Extra - Fluffy scrambled egg

Egg and cheese sandwiches are my absolute favorite. The egg can be cooked to your liking, and any variety of cheese would be delicious. (But I just can't seem to resist the melting power of American cheese slices!) 



Lunch - Tasty Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Pizza Griled Cheese


Bread - Italian specialty bread (like Parmesan herb)
Butter - Butter mixed with garlic salt
Cheese - Finely shredded Italian 5-cheese blend
Extra - Sliced pepperoni

Who can resist pizza AND grilled cheese? In this full-flavored sandwich, I use shredded cheese for more even melting. Serve with a side of pizza sauce for dipping.



Dinner - Mexican Grilled Cheese-Burger

Mexican Grilled Cheese Burger


Bread - Thick and fresh Texas toast
Butter - Cilantro herb butter (Simply mix 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro and some garlic salt with a stick of softened butter.)
Cheese - Finely shredded Mexican cheese blend
Extra - Hamburger patty (Mix ground beef with diced onion and a little garlic salt for extra flavor.)

This mouthwatering sandwich is juicy and gooey yet crispy and crunchy. The cilantro herb butter adds just the right amount of freshness.



Dessert - Grilled "Cheesecake" Dessert Sandwich

Dessert Grilled Cheese  


Bread - Sweet cinnamon swirl bread
Butter - Salted sweet cream butter
Cheese - Cream cheese mixed with a bit of powdered sugar
Extra - Cherry pie filling

A grilled sandwich that tastes like cheesecake? Yes, please! Top with more cherry pie filling and powdered sugar for a sweet and delicious dessert.
