National Grilled Cheese Day

April is National Grilled Cheese Month, but today, April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Day.  It’s one of our favorite days of the year! Why? Well, it gives us an excuse to have a grilled cheese sandwich all day long to celebrate.  This delightful and easy to make sandwich can be made with just bread and Palmetto Cheese or with an endless amount of ingredients to create the perfect sandwich. Here are some grilled cheese sandwiches that are sure to make your mouth water.

For a chance to WIN a  16 ounce Palmetto Cheese Tervis Tumbler, leave a comment and tell us your favorite way to make a Grilled Cheese Sandwich!  We’ll contact the winner by email and post on this page tomorrow.

  • Deborah Robinson says:

    Butter the outsides of the bread extremely generously. Fill with Palmetto Cheese JALAPENO style! Put even more butter in a cast iron skillet and heat the butter til it’s bubblin’. Fry the sandwich until it’s very well done – nearly blackened. Best. Sandwich. Ever.

  • Brenda says:

    I love to use slices of french bread with Palmetto Cheese with bacon and sliced tomatoes. Butter the bread good before you put it in the pan. Spray the pan before putting in the butter so it doesn’t burn quickly. Don’t cook at too high of heat, and it will be perfect. Just add a dill pickle on the side.

    This PCGC only works in summer when the tomatoes are uberfabulous and right out of the ground:
    thick slices of country white or sourdough
    jalapeno PC, crispy bacon strips
    cover both outsides of bread with olive oil butter from Land O’ Lakes
    spread layer of PC, add bacon and grill in cast iron pan with bacon press on top, both sides, then pull out the sandwich and add slices of garden tomatoes, sprinkled in seasalt and pepper (the cool of the tomatoes provides a little heat relief, and serve with plain potato chips and a little home brewed ice tea with a big slice of lemon.
