Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month?  Guess what? April 12th is National Grilled Cheese Day!

In honor of this month of the beloved sandwich, I have not 1 but 3 recipes to share with you! These are not just normal grilled cheese. These sandwiches all have a French cheese involved: Comte, Emmental, and Mimmolette.

Why French cheeses? French cheeses are some of the most beloved by chefs worldwide. So why not take your sandwich up a notch with French cheese and breads.

  • Mimmolette

What is Mimmolette? Mimmolette hails from the Normandy region of France. It’s delicious semi-firm cheese has a sharp and nutty flavor.

When I did research for this cheese I found out that this particular French cheese is considered one the best cheeses to use on the classic grilled cheese sandwich. It also is amazing in #macaroniandcheese.

I decided to go for an American classic taste, but with French appeal. The answer to me was simple. I used a Philly cheesesteak as my inspiration for this grilled cheese.

One bite of this buttery, cheese creation, I knew I had a hit. Mimmolette was born to be in grilled cheese. Then with the added steak to that mix, it is sandwich heaven.
