This Wednesday (12th April) is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day and Graham’s the Family Dairy has created a monster cheese challenge as part of National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day.

The challenge dish includes eight delicious layers of gooey goodness sandwiched between layers of sourdough and Italian style breads. Inside each tier of Graham’s Mild Red, Mature and Extra Mature cheddars a different complementary flavour can be found, from sweet fried onion, to succulent pulled pork.

On the menu at Nic’s NYC Deli in Glasgow (396 Byres Road) and Meltmongers in Edinburgh (80 Bruntsfield Place) between 10am and 6pm, the dish is thought to be the biggest grilled cheese sandwich ever made in Scotland – and special rewards are promised to those who can polish it off.

If plates are successfully cleared, stuffed diners will receive an official ‘I Conquered The Cheese Stack’ filter for their social profiles – and the ten people to finish it off most quickly will also win a year’s supply of Graham’s the Family Dairy cheese*.

Carol Graham, Marketing Director at Graham’s the Family Dairy said: “Whether you prefer to call it grilled cheese, toasted cheese or roasted cheese, next Wednesday is the perfect opportunity to order the ultimate comfort food; hot, melted, buttery cheese – ten whole layers of it. It’s time for Scotland’s cheese lovers to step up to the challenge.”

Nic Sharp of Nic’s NYC Deli said: “We were delighted to partner with Graham’s the Family Dairy on this cheesy competition. Our customers love a food eating challenge, and what better way to get a ‘slice’ of the action than on National Grilled Cheese Sandwich day?”

Martin Boyle at Meltmongers said: “As Scotland’s first dedicated grilled cheese establishment, our regular customers are fanatical about cheese, so any excuse to eat more they’ll happily take. Graham’s mature cheddar makes the grate-est grilled sandwiches and we’re looking forward to seeing who’ll become a champion of the Ultimate Cheese Stack.”

Sweet fried Onions
Cranberry sauce
Three cheese
Pickled gerkins

The Graham’s Cheese Stack is priced at £19.95.
