Growing up I was raised by a single mom who worked long hours as a nurse.

She would often be home late at night, so I would have to make dinner for my brother Bob and me.

One meal I often made for us was grilled cheese and tomato soup.

Even now as an adult, when the weather gets cold I love to have a big bowl of tomato soup with a couple of grilled cheese sandwiches.

LoveFood did an article discussing the best grilled cheese shops in America.

Two slices of bread and a bit of cheese might sound simple but, to many, finding the perfect grilled cheese is an endless (very tasty) mission. There are the purists, who like theirs with handfuls of Cheddar and finished under the grill. Some prefer a sandwich with several types of cheese, while others might want all the loaded extras.

If you're looking for the best grilled cheese in Michigan you can find it at Hopcat.

This is what the experts at Love Food had to say about Hopcat's Madtown Grilled Cheese.

The Madtown Grilled Cheese at this sports bar chain is so good, some would pick it as their very last meal. It uses a blend of dill Havarti, smoked Gouda and muenster cheeses, sandwiched in sourdough with apple slices, garlic aioli and a drizzle of honey – and it really does live up to the hype. HopCat has several locations in Michigan, including in Detroit and Grand Rapids, and has taken its crave-worthy grilled cheese to other states too.

 

I'm a big fan of Hopcat but have never tried the Madtown Grilled Cheese.

Looks like I know what I'm getting next time I visit.
