What?! April is National Grilled Cheese Month?!

What?! April is National Grilled Cheese Month?!

Not until I recieved an email from Kathi @ panini happy (and a comment from the Daily Spud) did I know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month. How is that possible? How did the grilled cheese man not know that April is Grilled Cheese Month?! Readers, you have failed me by not cluing me into this fact. I have even disappointed myself since I am trying to blog about all things grilled cheese. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.

The worst part about finding out now? Passover is just one day away and there is no way that I can celebrate until next week. I mean, I can celebrate with matzoh, as I plan on doing Sunday, but it just won’t be the same. I guess I will just have to force myself to wait until the holiday is over. Oh well. If you have any suggestions on how to mark this special occasion, please leave your thoughts in the comments. Hopefully with all of our minds, we can come up with something great.
2009 National Grilled Cheese Month -- April

If you Google “National Grilled Cheese month 2009,” there are plenty of web sites mentioning the occasion. In total, Google tells me that there are 94,200. Once I hit publish, you can add one more. The first few sites, I can’t look through them all, are worth a quick glance. Plus, the first site below gave me the two images in this post.

In addition to the articles above, that are simply about the greatness of grilled cheese sandwiches, there are also a couple of contests going on to celebrate the wonderful occasion:

I hope to enter both of these contests, after I decide which of my previous sandwiches to enter. If you have suggestions as to which of my sandwiches I should enter, please leave a comment below. It would really make my job easier!

Anyway, happy National Grilled Cheese Month! (I guess a Jew did not decide that April would be National Grilled Cheese Month, huh? πŸ™‚

  • I really should start eating more grilled cheese. Back when I was living the bachelor lifestyle I used to have grilled cheese quite a lot. I wonder.. Have you ever tried putting cinnamon on the grilled cheese? I swear its delicious.

  • @ Greg: I saw that you mentioned Grilled Cheese month in your grilled cheese blog post. I guess the Grilled Cheese Council (Ha!) didn’t promote the month so well! πŸ™‚

    @ Sean: You really should eat more grilled cheese sandwiches. Then if you find a kind you really like, you can write about it and I will feature here on the site. Just a thought…

    And no, I have not tried cinnamon on a grilled cheese. I am thinking that might be good for this Sunday’s sandwich, so we will see. If I don’t use it this week, I will definitely keep it in mind!

  • Wow! I had no idea, and the month is already half gone! By the way, if you wanted, you could make grilled cheese on tortillas–that stuff is unleavened:)

    I seasoned a cast iron skilled years ago by making a grilled (technically “griddled,” I guess) sammich in it every day, moving the bread and butter/oil around to cover different sections of the pan on different days until the whole thing was a lovely dark brown/black. How’s that for dedication?! πŸ˜†

    How to celebrate? I suggest doing a series of grilled cheese w/ other items that start w/different letters of the alphabet. Start w/cheese and Anaheim peppers, or apples and then go to cheese w/ bacon, cheese with um, more cheese? until you get to Z!

  • Time flies when you are having fun right, Jenni? Sounds like you were really dedicated with that new sandwich everyday! And here I thought a new sandwich every week was good.

    Once Passover is over, I will definitely try and celebrate somehow. Your suggestion is a great one, I just don’t know if I have enough time! Passover fell in the wrong month this year! Haha. Maybe on Sunday I will do something special. πŸ™‚
