Celebrate Natonal Grilled Cheese Month
If there is one food worth celebrating (that doesn't contain chocolate) it's the grilled cheese sandwich. It may just top Suzy's list of all time favorite comfort foods, and what better time to indulge then during April, National Grilled Cheese Month!

Here's an age old recipe from the age old Fannie Farmer Cookbook.

Ingredients
2 slices Cheddar, American, or Swiss cheese
2 slices white bread
2 tablespoons butter

Put the cheese between the slices of bread. Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a skillet or grill and when melted add the sandwich. Gently press down with a spatula once or twice during the grilling. When one side is golden, add the remaining tablespoon of butter, turn the sandwich over, and brown.

Grilled Cheese with Bacon
Fry 3 slices bacon until cooked but not crisp. Pat dry of excess fat, add on top of the cheese, and grill as directed.

Grilled Cheese with Ham
Put 2 thin slices ham on the cheese and grill as directed. Serve with sweet pickle.

Onion-Cheese Sandwich
Follow the recipe for Grilled Cheese Sandwich, but lightly coat 1 slice of bread with Dijon mustard. Sauté 3 to 4 slices onion in butter and put on top of the cheese. Cover and grill.

Tomato-Cheese Sandwich
Follow the recipe for Grilled Cheese Sandwich, but add two thin slices tomato to the sandwich before grilling.
