Best Of All Sandwiches

DuPont sponsored a contest in 2004 to search for the Greatest Grilled Cheese Sandwich in America. The overall winner was Ashley Berman of Coral Springs, Florida with her creation The Caribbean Grill. The sandwich featured a mango salsa, curry powder, swiss, and honey mustard on fresh Italian bread. There were some pretty other amazing winners like the regionally inspired Dairyland Cheddar Cranapple Grill and the culturally influenced Queso Con Verde.
