Grilled Cheese Sandwiches have become a versatile and delicious commodity of the Food World. The cool thing about the Grilled Cheese Sandwich is that no one actually knows where or when they actually came about. They were however previously named a “Cheese Dream” in the early 1900’s as the meal was cheap, quick, and easy to make. Plus who doesn’t like warm bread with melted cheese on top or in between! Back then people would add things such as ham, bacon, eggs, cayenne, mayonnaise, and even mustard! Who knew you could put so many different things into a grilled cheese??
