Oh boy, now this is one holiday I can get behind. It's National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. Who doesn't love a grill cheese sandwich? Well, I guess folks who don't like cheese or can't eat dairy but for the rest of us, we will tear up a grilled cheese.

I remember when I was growing up, my mom would make me a grilled cheese for lunch during the summer. The more butter on the bread the better, but what kind of cheese you put on it and how much you use makes all the difference.

The top five cheese people like to use when constructing their perfect grilled cheese are Cheddar, Swiss, American, Provolone, and Pepper Jack. If you are feeling adventurous, put two or three types of cheese on your sandwich and watch your taste buds explode.

When it comes to cheese on our food though, you will be surprised that grilled cheese isn't the number one thing. Most Americans like cheese first and foremost on pizza as their favorite food with cheese on it.

Grilled cheese and mac and cheese are tied for second place as far as our favorite cheesy treats according to National Today. Cheeseburgers came in third but when we read that, we were like what? Who doesn't love a good cheeseburger?

Fire up the stove and get out the bread, butter, and cheese to make yourself a tasty snack for National Grilled Cheese Sandwich day.
