National Grilled Cheese Day may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a gooey, cheesy masterpiece. Grilled cheese is an easy go-to meal for students, but if you’re getting tired of the same old melted cheese, butter and bread, there are plenty of ways to spice up your sandwich.
Here’s a few suggestions on what you should add:
A Cincinnati classic, goetta is sure to make your grilled cheese taste extra home-y. Traditionally a breakfast food made of beef, sausage and oats, goetta will turn your simple grilled cheese into a savory, delicious meal.
If you haven’t tried goat cheese yet, do yourself a favor and indulge — you won’t regret it. Goat cheese provides a perfect balance of creaminess and richness. Add some to your grilled cheese, and it’s guaranteed to be a hit.
This one is for all you hipsters out there. It’s basically just avocado toast with cheese. Adding avocado to your grilled cheese is a great way to add some extra flavor — and it’s healthy, too. What’s not to love?
Bacon goes with everything — and I mean everything. Need I say more? This protein has been a hit in mac and cheese dishes for ages, so why not add it to your other cheesy meals?
OK, hear me out on this one. Cooking with apples can be a bit tricky, but with a little love and care, they’re a real treat. Apples provide a hint of sweetness to your grilled cheese and leave you wanting more.
So, next time you run to the store to pick up the fixings for a grilled cheese, make sure to grab one (or all) of the ingredients on this list.
