Today is National Grilled Cheese Day … one of my favorite days of the year! Last year, we shared the insanely delicious Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich from Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land on Disney Parks Blog. This year, we are again celebrating and sharing another ooey, gooey sandwich recipe, this one from ABC Commissary at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich!

Our chefs
have taken the grilled cheese to the next level and created a cheesy, melty sandwich
with just a hint of heat from the buffalo sauce. This sandwich has the perfect
combo of buffalo
chicken, Monterey Jack, provolone, cheddar, and cream cheese between grilled
sourdough. If you want the full ABC Commissary experience, serve this sandwich
with steak fries or an arugula-farro salad, and have a side of extra buffalo sauce at the
ready. Or go old-school with a steaming bowl of tomato soup for dipping. Happy National Grilled
Cheese Day!
