3 Gooey Recipes for National Grilled Cheese Day


Happy National Grilled Cheese Day! If you're a cheese fanatic like me, today is probably the best day ever.

Not only are these sammies the ultimate comfort food, they can pack in more 30% of your daily value of calcium. Watching your waist? Create a slimmed-down version with low-calorie cheese such as mozzarella, Parmesan, swiss or feta.

And you don't have to stick to the traditional cheese singles and white bread. Sub in heart-healthy whole wheat bread or add veggies such as spinach, mushrooms and tomato for a boost of fiber, which recent research has suggested may lower stroke risk.
