It’s National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day! Who Has The Best Grilled Cheese?

Who doesn’t love a good grilled cheese sandwich?  I have to admit it’s one of my favorite foods to eat.  It’s that perfect comfort food that is also easy to make.  Historians say that cooked bread and cheese is an ancient food enjoyed across the world.  The modern version of the grilled cheese originated in the U.S. in the 1920s when inexpensive bread and American cheese was easily available.  Most restaurants have some version of a grilled cheese sandwich on their menu, or I’m sure you could get your favorite spot to make one.  According to WZZM 13 here are some of the best places in West Michigan to find a grilled cheese sandwich.
