National Grilled Cheese Day – April 12, 2017
Grilled cheese, yum! This American comfort food has been around since the time of the Romans, but it didn’t really become popular until the 1920’s when sliced bread and cheese became readily available to families around the world.
The grilled cheese has been a popular staple in the United States. In fact, according to a 2009 report by consumer research firm NDP Group Inc., approximately 2.2 billion grilled cheese sandwiches are eaten by Americans each year.
There is no better way to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day (on Wednesday, April 12th) than enjoying one of America’s best-loved sandwiches. And to help take the fuss out of dinner (or lunch) Four Story Burger! inside Downtown Birmingham’s Emagine Palladium is offering free unlimited toppings on its Melt! MMMMM! The Melt is a gooey combination of cheddar, Swiss & parmesan cheese with sweet red pepper aioli on thick-cut Crispelli’s Bread. You can create your own masterpiece with extra toppings which include Applewood smoked bacon, fire-roasted jalapeno peppers, Brazilian onion & pepper sauce, smashed avocado, sautéed mushrooms, chili & cheese or an (over-easy) fried egg.
I am looking forward to celebrating this week with one of my favorite comfort foods. What are some of your favorite things to add to a grilled cheese? Leave a comment below.
