Mmm, National Grilled Cheese Month. It’s a time to treasure this all-American classic: ooey, gooey cheese melted between two slices of toasted bread. For those looking to do some serious cheese grilling this April, Thrillist has you covered. The food, drink and travel site recently released its top 10 cheeses for grilled cheese sandwiches. American topped the list, followed by pepperjack and provolone.
A trip to your local grocery store will have your head spinning with American cheese options. One-hundred forty-three to be exact, according to the Label Insight product data engine.
While you stand in front of the cheese case mulling your choices, remember American cheese packs some nutritional power in the form of calcium, Vitamin D and protein. Facts that cheese manufacturers are quick to point out via FDA nutrient content claims on their packaging. In fact, almost all (93 percent) include “good” or “excellent” source of calcium claims, a quarter tout being a good source of vitamin D, and another quarter boast being a good source of protein.
Ok, grab your cheese and get grilling. And if you want to spice up your sammy a bit, check out these recipes courtesy of Buzzfeed.
