Today is National Grilled Cheese Day – a cheesy day to be celebrated around the country!

These sandwiches were very cheap and easy to make, making them popular among families during the Depression era. One of America’s favorite food combinations was created when school cafeterias starting pairing tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches to meet the dietary requirements for school lunches[1].
