You guys took our Grilled Cheese Deathmatch so seriously last week, we knew would appreciate a little more cheesy goodness as a thank you for all your votes. And today is the day you get that gooey, crispy, buttery thank you note.

Is there any sandwich more comforting than a grilled cheese? Have we as humans invented anything more satisfying than melted cheese and buttered bread? We can't think of anything right now, but that's probably just because we've been looking at these sandwich photos all day.

For us, nothing beats simplicity: butter, bread, cheese. But sometimes you want something a little fancier, so we did some digging to find you the most decadent and outrageous grilled cheese recipes on the internet.
