April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Day, and in advance of this ooey, gooey, yummy food holiday, Skout asked its community members about their grilled cheese consumption and their habits.
The findings are fun, if you’re a grilled cheese lover. First of all, we who love grilled cheese get more lovin' — or "more action in the bedroom," as Skout puts it. Grilled cheese lovers are also more adventurous and likely to travel.
So what's the correlation between loving grilled cheese, getting more sex, traveling more, and oh yeah, being more charitable? That isn’t addressed by the survey, but I have a theory. Grilled cheese is a classic kid food. Even though adults eat it, too, it’s up there with spaghetti and peanut butter and jelly when it comes to foods kids are likely to eat. So maybe those who still love grilled cheese are just younger at heart and more fun-loving.
I have a question for you, and no, I don’t want to know about your sex life. But I do want to know how you like your grilled cheese. Are you a grilled cheese purist who likes only one kind of cheese on your sandwich or do you like to mix things up a little?
Me, if I’m just doing only cheese, I like a mixture of American and mozzarella, maybe some mild provolone if I happen to have it. If I’m adding something in, some tomato jam and caramelized onions work for me. I also like to melt the butter on the griddle and then place the bread on top of it instead of buttering the bread first. I think it gives the bread a more even, crispier texture.
If you want to venture away from just bread, butter and American cheese on National Grilled Cheese Day, try one of these combinations:
