When you make a grilled cheese sandwich, are you a traditionalist meaning it just has bread, cheese, and butter?  Maybe you get all fancy with it? A new survey from PR Newswire got pretty in depth.

Here are five stats about how we eat grilled cheese:

1. 55% of people prefer to use just one type of cheese. The most popular is American cheese!  You guessed it, cheddar is second.

2. Surprisingly, just 27% of us like to stick with the classic, cheese-and-bread combo.  73% put at least one other ingredient in there.  For some reason, blondes are slightly more likely to do it than brunettes.

3. The four most popular add-ons are tomatoes, bacon, ham, and eggs. Opinion question, isn’t that an egg sandwich?  Is it really still a “grilled cheese” if there’s egg in there?

4. The four WEIRDEST things we’d be willing to try on a grilled cheese are sauerkraut, tuna, peanut butter, and chutney. (Anyone? Chutney?  Had to Google it myself)!

5.  64% of people said they’d be willing to take a bite of a “mystery” grilled cheese, where they had no idea what was on it. As long as there’s bread and cheese, about two-thirds of us would give it a go.
