Grilled Cheese Day in Cashton, WI


Happy Grilled Cheese Day from Cashton Wisconsin! We are celebrating National Grilled Cheese Day (April 12th) by giving this pinnacle of crispy comfort food a Cashton-style makeover: local bacon, organic maple syrup, ultra melty cheese, and Amish-made bread come together with funky flair (thank you avocado!) for a sandwich like no other! Thanks to the abundance of locally produced food in Cashton, creative culinary adventures are never far off. Stay tuned for more Cashton-inspired recipes here on the blog.


Tips for making the best grilled cheese:

  • Pre-heat the pan to medium (an iron skillet works great!)

  • Butter one side of each slice of bread

  • Place one slice of bread in pan, buttered side down, put cheese on top and cover with remaining slice of bread, buttered side up

  • Turn down heat a notch, cook 2-4 minutes until golden

  • Flip and cook 2-4 minutes until golden
