Today is National Grilled Cheese Day! A day I’m sure you didn’t know existed. Although, we know there’s a day for everything so it really shouldn’t come as a big shock. Believe it or not, there is an art form to building and constructing the world’s best grilled cheese sandwich. You don’t just plop some cheese on bread and go to town. Not to mention the type of bread and type of cheese is also important. And do you use butter on the bread? Do you put any condiments in the sandwich? Regardless of how you make it, the construction of a grilled cheese sandwich is very important.

Then there is the ongoing question of what you pair it with. Personally, I believe a nice big creamy bowl of tomato soup is the perfect pairing for a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s the ultimate comfort food on a cold, rainy day. Or any day for that matter. Something about dipping that sandwich in all of its glory in a big hot bowl of tomato soup just melts in your mouth. A grilled cheese sandwich on a cold, rainy day will instantly put a smile on anyone’s face. It just warms your heart and your stomach.
