National Grilled Cheese Day celebrates the popular hot sandwich. A grilled cheese sandwich consists of toasted bread with melted cheese inside. It is a simple recipe that has been enjoyed since the Ancient Roman civilization. It is believed that they were one of the first to combine heated bread and cheese as a sandwich.

A common pairing with the sandwich is creamy tomato soup.
