It’s National Grilled Cheese Day because some people need a made up holiday to celebrate the grilled cheese. But not us at Foobooz World Headquarters. After all, I’ve called a grilled cheese by Bobby Flay “an explosion of taste in my mouth” and Jason Sheehan recently admitted that a grilled cheese matters to him more than a thick steak or even a lobster tail. As if today’s weather wasn’t enough of a reason to go for a grilled cheese at lunchtime, maybe this list will inspire you.

Nutella Dessert Pizza at Snap Custom Pizza

Since we rolled out our Fast Casual Tracker late last year to track the hot fast-casual concepts coming out of Philadelphia we’ve seen a whirlwind of activity. Of course there was the announcement that Urban Outfitters purchased Marc Vetri’s restaurants but also the ambitious plans of Snap Custom Pizza and Honeygrow’s continued growth.

We’ve recently updated the tracker and also made some changes, for one a concept has to have at least a second location announced before it is added (sorry Buena Onda and Scratch Biscuit).

Foobooz Six Pack: Stuffed Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


Put down the white bread and step away from the Kraft singles—we’ve found a list of stuffed grilled cheese sandwiches so loaded and gluttonous that they definitely aren’t your average comfort food must-haves.

These aren’t your mom’s grilled cheeses, and you know what? They aren’t even sandwiches you want to tell your mom about because you know she’ll start jabbering about silly things like cholesterol and pesky little heart attacks.

These sandwiches, stuffed with multiple meats and cheeses and standard menu items squished together between different breads slathered with different types of butters and sauces, are stuffed with a dictionary of culinary bad words: fat, bacon, cheese, grilled, fried, baked, crispy, oozing, dripping, melting…

You don’t have to be in a bad mood to eat them, but you’ll definitely feel happier once you’ve started in on any of these six stuffed grilled cheese sandwiches:
