It’s National Grilled Cheese day today, did you know? Any excuse to have a delicious, gooey grilled cheese sandwich is totally fine by us.  Here we’re highlighting our favorites, made by the masters at The Queens Kickshaw.  What are you favorite grilled cheese sandwiches in the nabe? We’d love to know!

Great hill blue

Mmmm…the Great Hill Blue grilled cheese is pretty magical and contains slivers of crunchy pears, sharp blue cheese, pickled blueberries on earthy cranberry walnut bread.  It’s like a savory dish and a dessert rolled into one!

GoudaThis Gouda is their big grilled cheese winner, as featured on CBS’s 7 Most Creative Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, and we love it.  A most unusual combination of black bean hummus, guava jam and pickled jalapenos makes this a sophisticated and comforting dish.

We hope you hit up The Queens Kickshaw for one of these beauties today to celebrate this foodie holiday.  If you come on the later side, they’ll be featuring the Homesick Hound Dogs band at 9 p.m. tonight.  Happy National Grilled Cheese day, Astoria!
