The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (WMMB) is kicking off April, National Grilled Cheese Month, with the launch of their third annual Grilled Cheese Recipe Showdown contest.  This year, the contest is bigger than ever with a $10,000 grand prize.

The contest, which begins April 1 and ends May 12, 2014, invites grilled cheese fans to submit original recipes featuring at least one Wisconsin Cheese along with photos of their sandwich creations to  Recipes will be judged by a panel of professional food bloggers, including Grilled Cheese Social, Foodie Crush, and bell’alimento.

In addition, the Grilled Cheese Academy website was recently updated to include new functionality and an expanded recipe gallery. For more information, or to enter the contest, visit
