Ahh, the grilled cheese.
So simple in its initial set-up, yet so open to the endless possibilities of its willing creator. Of course, there’s the classic — melted American cheese, two slices of bread, and yes, a healthy slathering of butter.
But simply mix in a blend of different cheeses and it’s a whole new flavor profile. Or add in vegetables — tomatoes, onion or perhaps avocado? What about layering in basil? Topping it with a fried egg?
Whether you’re a purist to the cheese and toast or an adventurous diner, our land of 10,000 lakes is full of options that will satisfy anyone’s craving for the childhood favorite.
The grilled cheese has certainly come a long way since its humble beginnings but could you choose just one to deem the best of Minnesota?
