Breakfast Grilled Cheese

National Grilled Cheese Month might be my favorite food month. Not that I need any excuses to consume copious amounts of cheese.

Today I’m sharing a breakfast grilled cheese to help you kick start the day the right way. If you’re short on time, make the hash browns and sausage the night before, then assemble and grill the morning of. Of course don’t forget to complete the assembly with some Tillamook Cheese, a heathy sprinkle of green onions and a fried egg.

Look at the fatness of that sandwich. It’s a serious affair, so make sure you are wearing clothes that also allows you to also wear your food. It’s a messy one.

Enjoy!  And to help you along Tillamook is offering a dollar off coupon for National Grilled Cheese Month.
