As if we needed another reason to eat bread and cheese, today is National Grilled Cheese Day. In true foodie fashion, we can't think of any better way to honor this momentous occasion than to whip up the three most popular grilled cheese recipes on Pinterest. Brought to you by Fifteen Spatulas, Cooking for Keeps, andВ Kirbie's Cravings, the following three recipes (one is even gluten-free)В have been pinned over 140,000 times in 2017 alone. Get out your spatula; these three grilled cheese recipes will leave you wanting seconds:В

Grilled Cheese With Avocado and Heirloom Tomato


Sourdough bread
Heirloom tomato
GruyГЁre cheese
Salt and pepper
Salted butter


Start by cutting your heirloom tomato and avocado into thin slices. Set aside.

Heat up a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Rub butter directly on the skillet and add both slices of bread to the pan. Toast for a couple of minutes until golden brown, and then remove the bread slices.

Pizza Margherita Grilled Cheese


Olive oil
Garlic clove, minced
Tomato paste
Fire-roasted canned tomatoes
Fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
Basil leaves
Sourdough bread
Butter, melted


In a small saucepan, heat olive oil and garlic over a medium heat. SautГ© until softened, about 1 minute. Add tomato paste, stir to combine. Cook for one minute. Add tomatoes, salt and sugar, whisk until tomato paste is fully incorporated. Simmer for eight to 10 minutes until thickened. Set aside.

Heat a large cast-iron skillet or griddle toВ medium heat. Spread about two tablespoons of sauce on each slice of bread. Top with four ounces of slices of cheese. Top with four to five leaves of basil.

Cauliflower-Crusted Grilled Cheese


Cauliflower, cut into small florets with theВ stem removed
Large egg
Shredded Parmesan cheese
Italian herb seasoning
White cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 450 F. Place cauliflower into food processor, and pulse into crumbs about half the size ofВ a grain of rice. Place cauliflower in a large, microwave-safe bowl and microwave for two minutes. Your cauliflower should be soft, tender, and hot. Repeat this process, increasing cook time, until cauliflower isВ moist to the touch and able to be shaped into bread slices.

Allow cauliflower to cool, and then add in the egg, parmesan, and seasoning. Stir to combine until a smooth paste forms. Divide dough into four equal parts and place on aВ large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using your knuckles and fingers, shape into square bread slices about 1/2-inch thick. Bake cauliflower bread for about 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool a few minutes.
