Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day is April 12th. Celebrate by making your favorite grilled cheese recipes for every meal! Grilled cheese sandwiches are loved and enjoyed around the world - Who doesn't love a grilled cheese? Cheese is the main ingredient, what could be better!

Grilled to perfection:
The following sandwich-making tips come from food writer Laura Werlin's "Great Grilled Cheese," her third cookbook, which pays homage to this American classic with 50 creative sandwich recipes.

A few tips:


1. Grate, don't slice: Grated cheese melts faster, so the bread tends not to burn.

2. Soft is best: Always use softened butter -- it will spread easily on the bread and make the bread brown evenly.

3. Salted butter is best: Salted butter adds more flavor to the outside of the bread.

4. Nonstick is best: Always use a nonstick skillet so sandwiches won't stick to the pan.

5. Cover it: Best to cover the sandwich when cooking on the first side, in order to melt the cheese sufficiently.
