National Grilled Cheese Day

Celebrate Sunday, April 12th 
with $3 off at Panera Bread

      The Grilled Cheese Sandwich began its lofty climb to comfort food stardom during WWII when it became a favorite of the Allied Troops. Shortly thereafter, homemakers and schools followed by making it a mainstay in their menu planning. It's made a resurgence in recent years as gourmet
versions have appeared on menus with some restaurants building their entire business around the iconic meal, like Cincinnati's Tom + Chee.

Mozzarello with Fig Jam
on Sourdough and
Tomato Basil Soup
      We've been on the bandwagon a few times serving our own interpretations at parties and family gatherings. Our favorites were Mozzarella on Blue Oven Chocolate Cherry Bread for a holiday party a few years ago and Mozzarella with Fig Jam on Sourdough paired with Tomato Basil Soup at our wedding celebration.  There's nothing more comforting than that!

      Panera Bread is celebrating this Sunday, April 12th with an in-store promotion. Stop by your local bakery-café on April 12 and save $3 on any Grilled Cheese sandwich.
