National Grilled Cheese Day History

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. Grilled cheese became popular in the U.S in the 1920s when bread and cheese became more affordable. Its popularity continued as more people discovered the zesty flavor of a grilled cheese. A common pairing with the sandwich is creamy tomato soup.

National Grilled Cheese Day seems to have been created in 2012 as a promotion for the toasted sandwich. It is observed annually on April 12th.
