Grilled Cheese Photo Contest: The Results Are In…


April was National Grilled Cheese Month, and we held a little photo contest: submit your best pictures of grilled cheese, and the four best of the week receive a free copy of our most recent Cheese+ pairings issue and one grand prize winner gets a year’s subscription of culture.

Well, the month has closed and we have our winners!

First up—this sandwich is a melted whirlwind of Havarti, cheddar, smoked gouda, and Muenster. Let’s give it up for… @mayergirl77!

Second up—we got several slices of a simple yet elegant grilled-cheese combination of Kerrygold Cheddar and Ina Garten’s apple chutney. A warm round of applause for… Dugie Graham!

“My favorite Grilled Cheese sandwich is one with Kerrygold cheddar and Ina Garten's apple chutney recipe.”

Third on our roster of excellent cheesy photogs—she’s a whiz at Instagram filters and can style a strand of melted mozzarella like nobody’s business. A big ol’ HOO-ah to… @Aashi0829!

The fourth and last of our weekly winners crafts a mean, green machine of a cheesy grilled sandwich by throwing apple slices and kale slaw into the mix. Let’s all salivate in unison over the grilled cheese by… Kristen Suzon Butler!

“I love to add sliced apples and tangy kale slaw to my three or four cheese sandwiches for a fresh and tasty crunch... #GrilledCheese2015!  :)”
