Why Wisconsin loves grilled cheese
Wisconsinites love a grilled cheese sandwich for the same reasons the rest of the world does - it's basically a perfect food. But we also love grilled cheese because its simplicity really lets our Wisconsin cheeses take the lead. And boy were our cheeses were born to shine.
You may not know this, but Wisconsin is pretty much the promised land when it comes to cheese. Cheesemakers from all over the world arrived here in our fertile dairyland in the 18th century and have been making the world's best cheese for 175 years. Today, we have the only Master Cheesemaker program in the world apart from one in Switzerland. About 90% of the milk from our dairy farms goes into the cheesemaking process, which is why we produce more styles, flavors, and varieties of cheese than anywhere else in the world.
So next time you want to thrill your taste buds or comfort your soul with an awesome grilled cheese sandwich, make sure you're melting Wisconsin cheese on your bread of choice.
