The Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches in Baltimore

Apr 5, 2021

Anthem House residents, did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? It’s time to celebrate the versatility of the cheesiest sandwich around! 

The grilled cheese is less than 100 years old and originated right here in the United States, becoming an American staple after the creation of sliced bread in 1928. The grilled cheese was an easy, cheap and delicious meal to make during the Great Depression and great for both kids and adults. Grilled cheese can be made in many ways—all you need is bread and cheese, then you can add whatever else you want to it! Here are some of the best restaurants for grilled cheese in Baltimore, each of them putting their own unique twist on the classic sandwich.
