National Grilled Cheese Day is April 12th. I don’t really need really need a calendar to help me celebrate. Like most kids, I grew up eating grilled cheese sandwiches (a lot). My dad would grill them up buttery and toasty and flat on our old 1970s sandwich maker.
I could eat grilled cheese every day. There are times where I either have two in one sitting or make them several times a week. I don’t make them fancy, but there are lots of places that do! Check out a few places in Oakville and Burlington to enjoy the ultimate gooey goodness:
