If you’re a regular at NetCost Market, you know that we pride ourselves on our immense assortment of cheeses from around the world. But have you ever wondered where the first cheese comes from? It’s estimated that people have been eating cheese since about 8000 BCE, shortly after the domestication of animals. The world’s most popular cheese is mozzarella, which originated in southern Italy. Today, cheese dishes are found on every continent, ranging from savory and sweet to deep-fried and chilled in ice cream.
As you browse the plentiful varieties found in our World of Cheese, you may get a hankering for grilled cheese sandwiches. But why settle for a plain old grilled cheese sandwich, when you can dress up your creation with these tasty recipe ideas.
Following a recipe is fine, but you can also customize it to suit your tastes. First, pick whatever bread you like best. Then, select a tasty cheese that melts well. White sandwich bread or sourdough paired with cheddar, provolone, or American cheese are popular combinations. Rye and pumpernickel bread make good choices as well, especially with a light Gouda or Havarti.
Your add-in options are nearly endless! Caramelized onions, bacon, pepperoni, sundried tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, and even sweet ingredients like sliced apples or pears will take your grilled cheese to a whole new level. Remember to cook your grilled cheese over low heat so the sandwich contents have time to heat through and melt. Cover the pan with a lid to help steam speed up the cooking process.
