LeeFest Festival at John Darlings Farm in Edenbridge, England.

I have always had a deep and undying love for grilled cheese sandwiches. I’ve loved them ever since I was a child and would always ask my mom to make me one whenever I was feeling down or wanted a snack.

As I grew older, my love for grilled cheese only intensified. I tried all different kinds of cheeses, bread, and cooking methods to create the perfect grilled cheese sandwich. I even participated in a grilled cheese competition at a family get-together and won first prize with my secret ingredient, a dash of ketchup.

My love for grilled cheese became so strong that I wanted to start up my own grilled cheese food truck. The dream was to travel around the country, serving up delicious grilled cheese sandwiches. I had hoped to create a loyal following of grilled cheese fans who would come back often to try the grilled cheese sandwich of the day.

Then I would meet the love of my life at a grilled cheese festival. She would be a fellow grilled cheese enthusiast and we would bond over our shared love for the gooey, melted sandwich. We would get married in a ceremony that featured grilled cheese sandwiches, and specialty drinks that taste like grilled cheese.

While none of this ever came to fruition, my love for grilled cheese has never wavered, and I continue to make grilled cheese sandwiches for my family and friends from time to time.
One day my epitaph will read, “Loving son, husband, father, and grilled cheese enthusiast.”

Here are some of my favorite types of grilled cheese sandwiches…

    Made with white or wheat bread and American cheese.
