Yep, it’s a “real day”! (At least my phone says it is.) So what should you do on National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day? Well, make a grilled cheese sandwich, of course! This is a great way to get kids started in the kitchen. So here we go! Grab some bread, your favorite cheese, some butter, a skillet and a spatula and let’s get cooking! Start by laying out 2 slices of bread.
Butter the top of both slices of bread.
Lay the slices of bread together with the butter sides touching.
Lay your slices of cheese on top of the bread. Our favorite grilled cheese sandwich includes swiss cheese…
And 2 slices of American cheese.
Lay the top slice of bread with the cheese on it, into your skillet, butter side down.
And top with the second slice of buttered bread, butter side up.
Turn the burner on to medium heat. Keep a close eye on the bottom of your sandwich so it doesn’t burn. My hubby likes to use a lid for the skillet, but I usually don’t. When it’s nicely browned, it’s time to flip it over and cook the second side.
As your bread is getting brown and crispy, your cheese will be melting. When the second side is browned and the cheese is nicely ooey-gooey, turn off the skillet and put your yummy grilled cheese sandwich on a plate.
Cut your delicious sandwich in half and enjoy!! Ooooo, such yummy goodness!
If you want to add some more yumminess to your sandwich, try adding some thin slices of turkey or ham. Yum! I hope you have a great National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day! 🙂
