Today is the most important day of the year — at least for those of us who consider bread and cheese to be their own (highly esteemed) food groups.

Yes, that's right, it's National Grilled Cheese Day! And whether you're a traditionalist who likes their sammies well-done, made with white bread and American cheese (and dunked in a steamy tomato soup, of course), or an adventurous aficionado who's been known to throw some brie, prosciutto or pears into the mix, you should be celebrating.

To help make all your melted mozzarella wishes come true, we've rounded up a few of our favourite takes on this childhood classic. Whip one up for dinner tonight, and delight in all the dreamy, cheesy goodness!
