According to a new study by The NPD Group, Americans collectively eat 2.2 billion grilled cheese sandwiches every year, but none quite like these. Lindsey Granger and Toasted’s Samantha Singleton have three unexpected cheesy creations that will melt your heart.

1.  The Fat Elvis

Traditionally, Elvis Presley liked his sandwiches with peanut butter, jelly, bananas and bacon. We just took it a step further and added white cheddar, and not just any peanut butter – make it chunky! Make it really stand out with some strawberry preserve so you're getting full strawberries in there too. YUM!

2.  The Trailer Park

This is a fun take on the classic Frito Pie. The ingredients are simple with bread, cheddar cheese, American cheese and the chili of your choice. Then coat it in Frito crumbs and deep fry it. Just don’t even think about the calorie count – it’s too delicious to go there.

3.  Chocolate Chip Grilled Cheese

This fun creation has no clever nickname. You get exactly what you see – chocolate chip grilled cheese, which takes decadence to a whole new level. Just use chocolate chip cookies, Hershey’s chocolate and white cheddar cheese. You're just going to heat them up and get that chocolate kind of warm. It’s a perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth!
