When we were all children, there was nothing better than a slice of artificial American cheese between two toasted, buttery pieces of white bread.
As adults, our consumption of these glorious creations is not as it should be. In honor of National Grilled Cheese Day, we found a recipe that brings out your inner child with a bit of grown-up twist. A classic pairing of wine and cheese combined into a delicious grilled cheese sandwich.
