The Huffington Post     First Posted: 04/12/11 12:55 PM ET   Updated: 06/12/11 06:12 AM ET

It's not rocket science. Carbs plus fat equals comfort and joy, which is why we're so happy about National Grilled Cheese Day. Of course, the entire month of April is actually National Grilled Cheese Month, which is why people have been buzzing about the snack for a while now. Check out LAist for their gorgeous "Cheese Of The Week" slideshow and their write up of the Eva Restaurant/Grilled Cheese Truck grilled cheese pairing.

For hardcore fans, Tillamook cheese is sponsoring the annual Grilled Cheese Invitational on Saturday, April 23 at the Los Angeles Center Studios. Tickets are $12 online and $15 at the door. If you think you've got what it takes to challenge the pros, register to compete in one of four categories: "Love, American Style," "The Missionary Position," "The Kama Sutra," and "The Honey Pot."

As for those who just want to eat grilled cheese, here's some of the best in Los Angeles.

Campanile claims they're the first ever restaurant to offer a grilled cheese menu in Los Angeles, so we'd be remiss if we didn't put them in the number one spot.

Pictured: Croque Monsieur with ham, gruyere, wild mushroom, and mornay sauce.

Pair With: Don't argue with Chef/owner Mark Peel. He suggests "a side of our fantastic french fries and a pint of imported Belgian ale."
