(WTNH) – You don’t have to think about what to have for lunch on Friday — that decision comes easy.

April 12th is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day!

Nobody knows exactly when this comfort food was invented, but toasted bread and cheese is not new to anyone. 

The version you know and love came about in the 1920s when sliced bread and cheese became readily available. Back then, it was usually served as an open-faced sandwich.

However, there’s no wrong way to make grilled cheese, and that’s part of why they’ve stayed so popular. Use any cheese you like and try adding vegetables, oils, and seasonings to create your own perfect meal.
