Happy National Grilled Cheese Day!

In fact, April is National Grilled Cheese Month. And for me, it definitely means this is a great month to experiment with different grilled cheese recipes. And experiment I did. I wasn’t sure if the gourmet grilled cheese sandwich I concocted below would taste as good as all of the ingredients sounded on their own, but it was delicious!

Give it a try, and experiment with some grilled cheese sandwich combinations of your own!
