National Grilled Cheese Month is Here: Two Twists on a Classic Favorite!
|

Even though it’s not football season, it’s always cheesehead season in Wisconsin. That’s why National  Grilled Cheese Month is a big deal.

This month we are celebrating with classic options, which you can find here. We’ve also got a few twists on a classic favorite – Pesto Grilled Cheese and Bacon Avocado Grilled Cheese.

With just a few items from our Produce, Dairy and Bakery departments – you can be cheesin’ too! Celebrate the start of this glorious month with us on Friday, April 7, when we'll be offering samples of the classic grilled cheese sandwich, along with tomato soup, in our Deli Department from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
