There's something about a classic grilled cheese sandwich that immediately transports me back to childhood. I pretty much lived on Cheerios and grilled cheese for a number of years and I always made them the same way - two Kraft singles on buttered whole wheat sandwich bread. To this day, it's still one of my go-to comfort foods. 

As I've gotten older, however, I've also realized that there can be more to a grilled cheese than just the cheese. In fact, you can stuff all sorts of delicious mix-ins inside and make some pretty epic sandwiches. 

I've also realized that the kind of cheese you use can make a big difference. There are so many choices out there that each add their own unique flavor to the sandwiches!

Since all this talk has me craving a nice big grilled cheese sandwich, I've rounded up some deliciously creative flavor combos for you to try. These versions are stuffed with everything from berries to chicken to roasted vegetables so there's sure to be something for everyone!
