Happy National Grilled Cheese Day! You better believe we're celebrating. While we love a classic grilled cheese paired with a creamy tomato soup, this year we're interested in creating more unique sandwiches. We're talking about grilled cheese sandwiches like the following, which are more than just bread and cheese.
