It can be simple or quite complicated. It has been served with tomato soup and with ketchup (or maybe that’s just me), with one slice and with 17. It goes by at least two different names and is one of the most popular foods at the Indiana State Fair (only 121 more days!) every year. What is it? The grilled cheese.
From the Grilled Cheese Academy’s creative takes
To the classic school lunch favorite
To Indianapolis’s own Scratch TruckGrilled Cheese (complete with two kinds of cheese and red wine braised short rib), it’s no secret that the sandwich is popular.
But did you know that a classic grilled cheese (two slices of bread with one slice of cheddar cheese) has less than 300 calories and is a great source of protein? If any sandwich deserves a full month of celebration, it’s definitely the grilled cheese. Try something new or celebrate with a classic, and be sure to let us know which grilled cheese is the best!
Back to the at least two names thing… I’m curious, has anyone who isn’t from Allen or Adams Counties in Indiana heard of a grilled cheese being called a cheese toasty before?
