Grilled cheese might just be the perfect sandwich. Consider its many attributes: it’s crunchy, it’s melty, it’s warm, it’s cheesy. It plays well with others, but it stands on its own just fine. It’s perfect for lunch, dinner, or even a midnight snack. It’s just unbeatable. However, even perfection becomes boring after a while. Here are some ways to jazz it up:
