Tasty and simple grilled-cheese sandwiches are one of the ultimate comfort foods. Here are 30 easy sides for grilled cheese!
A grilled cheese sandwich is a crunchy and savory snack that offers the gooey goodness of melted cheese in every bite. The soft and chewy texture of the grilled cheese is complemented with the crispness of the golden brown bread, toasted just right. It ranks right up there with a good slice of pizza, in my humble opinion!
Grilled cheese is one of the most popular sandwiches as it is undeniably easy to prepare. You just need two ingredients that are likely readily available in your kitchen - cheese and bread. The most common type of cheese to use for grilled cheese sandwiches is either a combination of medium cheddar cheese, gouda, and Havarti cheeses or even just one type of it.
A grilled cheese sandwich is definitely something that you wouldn’t get enough of. This sandwich is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner, especially during cold weather. But eating this cheesy meal multiple times on its own can eventually be boring.
The good thing is that a grilled cheese recipe is versatile and can be paired with a lot of side dishes. This doesn’t mean that you can just pair it with anything. Since grilled cheese already has its savory and creamy taste, it is best paired with light and fresh dishes like a bowl of soup, some favorite fruits, a simple green salad or even just a dill pickle! If you are having a hard time choosing the right dish to serve with grilled cheese, here are some recipe ideas on what to eat with grilled cheese.
