Say Cheeeeese…National Grilled Cheese Month that is!

10 Apr

Here’s our Forkly salute to an American staple that only gets better and more unique with time: Grilled Cheese. April happens to be National Grilled Cheese Month — in case you haven’t noticed already, there are festivals, cook-offs, and articles galore on this once-simple feast of grilled bread with melted cheese.

Take a look at Forkly users’ grilled cheese posts below… and keep ’em coming!

Hungry for more?! Here are some contests and dinners around the US:

  • Think you can make a mean grilled cheese? Wisconsin wants you to prove it with their 2012 Grilled Cheese Recipe contest (must use Wisconsin Cheese in the sandwich). It ends May 8, so get cooking!
  • Also, if you see restaurants around your city celebrating National Grilled Cheese Month, tweet at us (or let them know to tweet at us @forkly!) and get photos up on Forkly! For example, take a look at LA’s Clementine Bakery & Cafe and their month-long celebration of grilled cheese with 15 unique recipes on their menu. Or New Jersey’s The Pop Shop, which has 30+ variations of grilled cheese (they were even featured on the Food Network’s Throwdown with Bobby Flay) on the menu and is hosting a cheese poetry contest this month.

In the meantime, send in your fave grilled cheese pix!

Happy Grilled Cheese Month from the Forkly team — and if you’re in any of the contests, best of luck!
