While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Being April 1, we could tell you that today is "National Snake on Toast Day" or "National Chug Fryer Grease Day," but we like you so we’ll be nice.

April celebrates the grilled cheese sandwich. There’s something so perfectly comforting about this simple and humble dish.

Grilled cheese can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They can be devoured on their own or paired with soup; jazzed up or dressed down - it really doesn’t matter, they taste just as good.

Here are some tips for making the perfect grilled cheese:

It’s all happening right now. The election! MLB playoffs! The heat of the NFL season! BCS rankings! You’re probably either euphoric or miserable about something out there, whether it’s your guy’s/the other guy’s masterful debate performances; your team’s outstanding pitching/ineffective hitting; your team’s/the other team’s last second field goal; the Crimson Tide...I could go on.

Instead, I’ll offer some comfort foods that swing both ways: They can put the exclamation point on your party, or divert attention from your despair after you've thrown your flat screen to the ground.

Let’s hope you don’t miss that key April deadline. No, not Tax Day. I’m talking about April 12, National Grilled Cheese Day. If that illustrious date does pass you by, not to worry: Unlike failure to file your taxes, there are no financial penalties. Plus April is National Grilled Cheese Month, so there’s still plenty of time to celebrate.

I’m pretty much of a grilled cheese purist: I just need some bread, good melting cheese and plenty of butter. But there are lots of professionals out there who think much bigger than me. Here are some of the country’s more remarkable grilled cheese sandwiches.

Hot off the press: April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Day!

Whether you call it a cheese toastie or a grilled cheese, odds are you're going to love the magic that happens when you simply melt your favorite cheese between two toasty pieces of bread. Other ingredients are up to you, but they all begin with the same kind of deliciousness.

Best wines for grilled cheese

Ray Isle (@islewine on Twitter) is Food & Wine's executive wine editor. We trust his every cork pop and decant – and the man can sniff out a bargain to boot. Take it away, Ray.

Imagine a world without cheese - no pizza, no mac and cheese, no cheeseburgers, no cheesecake, no grilled cheese. It would mean the disintegration of society as we know it! The end of the world! Possibly the complete implosion of the entire known universe!

Well, thankfully, the big oil companies have recently patented the process of “cheese fracking,” insuring that none of us will ever face a future sans cheese. And that means we can go merrily on pairing wine with our grilled cheese sandwiches. And that, my cheese-fanatic friends, is a big relief.

A cheesy summer meltdown

When it gets so hot outside, everyone starts obsessing over ice cream sandwiches. Not me. Instead, I want to talk about savory, greasy, fried grilled cheese sandwiches.

Luckily for me, a lot of people are on my wavelength and they’re making terrific - or at least thought-provoking - versions.

As American as apple pie - the origins of picnic favorites

There's nothing quite so American as gathering your friends and family to celebrate Independence Day with a classic cookout.

We polled Eatocracy readers a while back, and nearly 38,000 votes later, it seems that the ultimate summer menu would consist of a burger (cooked medium and topped with cheese, lettuce and onions), potato salad, corn on the cob and watermelon, washed down with plenty of ice cold beer.

Only in the U.S.A., right?

Well, not quite. While those dishes may now be synonymous with American life, liberty and the pursuit of a really great picnic, like most of the citizens themselves, often their origins are elsewhere.

Techie turns toward a cheesier venture

What would you do after Cisco killed your beloved product? For Jonathan Kaplan, the inventor of the Flip video camera, the answer was simple: start a venture-backed nationwide chain of grilled cheese sandwich joints.

That may sound like Kaplan has lost his marbles, but bear with us.

Kaplan's genius, as shown in the highly popular Flip, is creating super-easy, mass-produced technology. With his new business, The Melt, he's done that twice over.

Buy a grilled cheese on your smartphone, and you get a QR code to swipe in store when you arrive. The back-end software ensures that you get a piping hot grilled cheese in your hands within 60 seconds of checking in.

5@5 - grilled cheese guru Spencer Rubin

5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

With just a couple days left, we're milking National Grilled Cheese Month for all it's worth - and for gouda reason. Bread, butter (or mayonnaise, depending on how you roll) and cheese - that's all a guy or gal really needs to turn a humdrum old loaf into a modern-day, ooey-gooey Mona Cheesa.

Here to help us fully behold the power of (grilled) cheese is Spencer Rubin. Rubin is the managing partner of Melt Shop in New York City where it's all grilled cheese, all the time - with a few milkshakes and bowls of tomato soup thrown in here and there.
