Now everybody else get excited. It’s National Grilled Cheese Month! I’m so enamored with grilled cheese. I could eat it every day that is if I was capable of making it without burning the bread which 7 out of 10 times I will do without fail. I’m getting better though!

It helps that I have been making grilled cheese once a week for the last several weeks. You see I get excited about pretty much any celebration, especially celebrations of food, especially when they have cheese involved. Since it's Friday I'll give you the run down of this months awesomeness in Friday Five format.

1 - In case you are interested the National Grilled Cheese Academy has an annual contest to find the best grilled cheese. Check out last year’stop contestants, you will thank me. And if you are interested in submitting an entry get ready because it’s happening now!

2 - My favorite grilled cheese in the whole wide world is the Margherita Grilled cheese. I mean you know my feelings on the pizza version, but this grilled cheese is the easier format to transfer all that deliciousness.

Margherita Grilled Cheese

2 slices thick slices of bread
½ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
3-4 basil leaves
1-2 slices of tomato
Light drizzle of balsamic vinegar

On one slice of bread stack the cheese, basil, tomato and balsamic drizzle. Top with the other slice of bread and lightly butter the outside slices. Place in a warm pan over medium heat and cook, flipping occasionally until the cheese has melted and the outside is crispy. Serve immediately.

3- I'm working on a compilation of grilled cheese, kind of like the best index for grilled cheese ever. So  get ready for that one at the end of the month.

4 - In the mean time if you are looking for ideas to help you celebrate this momentous occasion check out Food Network's List of 50 Grilled Cheeses.

5- Also since it's Friday lets Back that Azz Up with possibly the best song ever written, and performed by none other than Elmer Fudd.


  1. Welp, I know what I'm having for dinner tonight. And, basically, for the rest of the weekend.
    Also, the fact that you linked up with a song about grilled cheezus... you win all of the imaginary gold stars.

  2. I had no idea it was national grilled cheese month but now I'm going to eat it for the rest of the month.

  3. Haha I had no idea it was grilled cheese month but I've been eating it pretty much every day since the month started...I add bacon & avocado and use pepper jack & colby jack cheese.

  4. You are a girl after my own heart b/c I seriously Heart the grilled cheese :) I actually do like the bread slightly burnt though which I know is weird lol. If you're ever in KY there's a restaurant that only serves grilled cheese and tomato soup's heaven :)
