In honor of National Grilled Cheese Day, we’re counting down our 6 favorite grilled cheese sandwich recipes.

 

1.) The Spaniard

This salty and delicious Spanish grilled cheese features crisped Serrano ham, sharp Manchego cheese and melty Monterey Jack. Viva Grilled Cheese!

2.) Grilled Deviled Ham and Cheese

This yum take on a ham and cheese features a deviled ham salad sandwiched between cheese and bread – delish!

3.) Grilled Cheese and Ham Waffles

What? Grilled cheese in a waffle? You can’t do… Oh, I guess you can. This grilled cheese waffle has a French spin, featuring ham, Gruyere, Dijon mustard and Herbes de Provence baked right in.

4.) Curb the Carb Grilled Cheese

Want the grilled cheese but not the bread? This recipe doesn’t even need it! You use beefsteak tomatoes as the “bread” which you batter with ground nuts and fry. Sounds a little wacky, but check it out, we think you’ll like it!

5.) Italian-Style Grilled Cheese and Spinach Sandwiches

We’ve done a Spanish grilled cheese and a French grilled cheese – now it’s Italy’s turn! This grilled cheese is totally different than the others on the list – it stars spinach and four Italian cheeses: Mozzarella, Provolone, creamy Ricotta and sharp Parmigiano-Reggiano.

6.) Paul's Garlic Bread Grilled Cheese

This is a simple, homestyle grilled cheese except you turn the bread into garlic bread first!

So congrats if you’ve made it this far, which means you didn’t run to the kitchen to make one of these mouth-watering recipes in the middle of reading it. We’re actually about to do that. But tell us in the comments – how do you make your grilled cheese?
