In 1910, Otto Frederick Rohwedder invented the first machine that could slice bread. This invention revolutionized the way bread was packaged and sold. Sliced bread became popular quickly, as it was convenient and saved time for consumers.
In the 1920s, creative cooks started experimenting by adding cheese to their grilled sandwiches. The combination of melted cheese and toasted bread appealed to many people, making it a popular choice for a quick and delicious meal.
During the 1930s, grilled cheese sandwiches gained even more popularity. However, the name 'grilled cheese' wasn't widely used until picture framing materials came onto the scene.
In 1949, the phrase 'grilled cheese sandwich' started gaining prominence in recipe books and menus. Picture framing materials at the time often had a grilled cheese finish, which referred to the toasted and melted appearance. In the same way, the sandwich resembled the appearance of frames with a toasted cheese exterior and a warm, gooey interior. Hence, the name 'grilled cheese sandwich' emerged and stuck.
In the 1980s, grilled cheese sandwiches gained recognition beyond just being a popular meal. April became the National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month, celebrating this beloved comfort food and giving it the recognition it deserved.
