If you could eat happiness for lunch, it’d be a grilled cheese sandwich.

Crisp, buttery and filled with melted cheese ― it’s perfect. What makes grilled cheese even better is that it welcomes all the creativity you want to throw at it, but doesn’t really need one ounce of it. You can add multiple cheeses to it, or sneak in some avocado. Bacon is always a plus, or even brisket if you like to go big. You could make the whole sandwich giant. Or, just keep it simple. Whichever way you slice it, you can’t lose with a grilled cheese sandwich.
