The Most Delicious Memes Of National Grilled Cheese Day 2018 (You’re Welcome)

Today, April 12, is National Grilled Cheese. It’s not like Americans needed an excuse to eat unhealthy, artery-clogging fried cheese sandwiches, but we’ve got one now. Let’s make the most of it, shall we?

National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day is observed annually on April 12th. Unsurprisingly, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are among one of the top comfort foods in the United States. Just look at them, with their melting cheese and toasted bread. They’re one damn good looking treat.

According to food historians, cooked bread and cheese is stretches back for centuries, enjoyed across the world in many cultures.  The United States modern version of the grilled cheese sandwich originated in the 1920s when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became readily available. Initially, it was made as an open-faced sandwich. Its popularity probably coincided with the Great Depression, but at least we can look back at that financial crisis and say one good thing came of it.

United States government cookbooks describe Navy cooks broiling “American cheese filling sandwiches” during World War II. Nothing feels better after a long day of war and death than a cheesy sandwich.

Grilled cheese sandwiches are versatile thanks to the ability to mix and match cheeses, bread, and seasonings.  Adding sauteed vegetables or herb-infused oils can elevate this simple comfort food to a whole other level. Or, you can just throw bacon in that bad boy and call it a day. Either way, you can’t go wrong.

Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you’re “too old” for grilled cheese, that’s absolute nonsense. Oh yeah, I’m “too old” to enjoy cheese on bread? You kidding? If you foodies out there feel the need to act snobbish, there are plenty of fancy cheese and bread options out there so that you can enjoy the simple comfort that is a grilled cheese sandwich.

If it’s possible, do yourself a favor and cook up a quick bowl of tomato soup. After all, what’s better than a regular grilled cheese? A grilled cheese with a dipping sauce.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go to the store and get a loaf of bread and a stack of cheese so I can officially join in on the festivities. Enjoy National Grilled Cheese Day and be sure to check out the hilarious gallery above.
