We love local cheese (including our own). To celebrate local Western cheesemakers, we’re going to publish a Great Grilled Cheese Sandwich story in our July issue. Who will create these crunchy, melting beauties?

You, our readers!

Yes, this an open invitation to all of you to send us your favorite grilled cheese sandwich recipes, preferably using Western cheese(s).  If we choose your concoction, you’ll get a cheese-filled gift basket. And the glory of getting published in Sunset, of course.

To enter, send your original recipe to OR Grilled Cheese Contest, Sunset magazine, 80 Willow Rd., Menlo Park, CA 94025.

Deadline: April 13.

We’re standing by, waiting to try your killer grilled cheese sandwich.

    So sorry, Nancy and Essays–that grilled-cheese competition did indeed happen, and it was 2 years ago. If you’re craving grilled cheese, you might want to check out this link to the sandwiches we ended up picking:

    How do I know that my grilled cheese sandwich recipes were received. I didn’t get a confirmation.

    Mmm, brie and figs. That sounds like a tasty combination.

    Any bread (preferably one with lots of seeds), any cheese (prefer brie) and any jelly or preserve (prefer fig or blueberry). butter one side of each slice of bread, spread with jam, apply cheese, grill. YUMMMY!!!
