9 Mouthwatering Grilled Cheese Recipes For National Grilled Cheese Day

It’s National Grilled Cheese Day! As if you needed an excuse to make your favorite gooey, indulgent sandwich…

First things first, let’s make sure your grilled cheese game is on point. There are a few easy ways to improve your grilled cheese drastically without working much harder – the first being swapping out the Wonderbread and Kraft Singles (no hate) for different kinds of high quality ingredients. But it’s not just what’s on the inside that counts. If you still butter your bread and toss it in the skillet, try doing this instead. Or this.

Now you’re ready to make some next-level sandwiches. We have some great grilled cheese recipes for you, from savory and gooey to vegan to dessert, and we’re pretty sure they’ll all leave you drooling:

1. Fig, Manchego Grilled Cheese on Olive Bread

Looking for something fancy? This flavor combination will make you think you died and went to heaven.

2. Peach Port Salut and Pepper Jack Grilled Cheese

Peaches, cheese, chili powder. Sweet, savory, spicy. This sandwich has it all.

3. BBQ Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese

The next time you have leftover pulled pork, throw it into this sandwich and let it blow your socks off.

4. Chile Relleno Grilled Cheese

If you can think of any food tastier than Chile Rellenos, we won’t even believe you. But it can be a whole lot of work to stuff, dip and fry one, so why not just shove all the ingredients into a sandwich?

5. Lasagna Grilled Cheese

Literally just two of the best foods in existence combined into one.

6. Vegan Black and White Grilled Cheese

No dairy? No problem. The olive tapenade, rich balsamic vinegar and horseradish really complement the vegan cheese and bring some amazing savory flavors.

7. Vegan Pear, Raspberry and “Bacon” Grilled Cheese

We got another vegan one for you. If you want the omnivorous version, you can always swap out the Tofurky bacon and Daiya cheese for the real stuff, but why would you when it tastes this good?

8. Doughnut Grilled Cheese

Breakfast? Lunch? Dessert? We’re a little confused in the best possible way because that sweet/savory combo is just heavenly.

9. Bianca Dessert Grilled Cheese

In case the donut sandwich was too ambiguous for you, here’s something that is 100% a decadent dessert. The dulce de leche, mascarpone cheese and raspberry jam will really satisfy your sweet tooth.
