Grilled Cheese Month and A Selection of Fabulous Cheeses

Cheese glorious cheese! I love cheese, don't you? I love it plain, on a cheese plate and of course on a sandwich. This month is National Grilled Cheese Month.  An entire month dedicated to creamy, melty, cheese sandwiches.

French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

My favorite grilled cheese sandwich is topped with roasted tomatoes, and my second favorite is French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese.

I like to use a cat iron skillet to make my sandwiches and then a grill press to squeeze my sandwich and keep it together while its cooking because I like to load it up with tomatoes, extra cheese, sometimes onions or ham. Personally I do not think there are too many things, ok dessert and I do not mean cheese as a dessert, that do not taste better with cheese?

If you are on a low carb or no carb plan than feast your eyes on this scrumptious selection of cheeses from Williams Sonoma. I knew that they sold cakes, candy and croissants but I did not know about the cheese selection.

Do you have a favorite grilled cheese sandwich? Or do you like the traditional grilled cheese? Do you like it with soup? If you have a special recipe please share it with us.

Speaking of cheese, what is your favorite kind of cheese? I love Cambozolaa, Raclette, Emmental, and any cheese from the Satori Cheese Co. to name just a few.

Have a great day and a wonderful week? 


  1. I love croque monsieur--a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. Sometimes with a dash of mustard.

  2. Good morning, Elizabeth!!!! I can't eat cheese but it was a good thing when I could eat it! Happy Monday!

  3. I love grilled cheese with tomatoes or a little bit of bacon on them. Seems like everybody makes them better than I do. Not sure what I do wrong but maybe I need to try them in the cast iron pan....which makes all things better. :)

  4. I just started my pre summer diet and you had to post this!!

  5. Oh yum! My favorite sandwich in the whole world is grilled cheese, tomato, and bacon. Just thinking about it makes me weak at the knees! Have a great week, Elizabeth.

  6. There is nothing I love quite like a grilled cheese and when it's topped with onions and tomatoes...perfection! Happy Tuesday, Elizabeth!
