National Grilled Cheese Day is tomorrow, and we are celebrating the only way we know how. Though combinations of bread and cheese have been traced back to ancient times, the grilled cheese that we have come to know and love in America originated in the 1920s. The proper steps one takes to prepare a cheese sandwich is certainly open to interpretation, but we think we’ve found the most delicious. We give you, The Ultimate Grilled Cheese.
6 slices Cheddar cheese
6 slices Swiss cheese
6 slices Colby-Jack cheese
6 slices Muenster cheese
12 slices Texas toast
1 (5.2-ounce) package garlic and fine herb-flavored Boursin cheese, softened
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1. Place 1 slice Cheddar, Swiss, Colby-Jack, and Muenster cheese on each of 6 slices of Texas toast. Spread about 2 tablespoons Boursin on remaining 6 slices of Texas toast, and place, prepared side down, on top of cheese slices. Spread butter on each side of sandwiches. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Cook sandwiches, covered, 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
