    UPDATE: Just because Grilled Cheese Month is over, doesn't mean that our love for the melty snack isn't. This story was originally published on April 23.

    As die-hard grilled-cheese fanatics surely know, April 12 was National Grilled Cheese Day — and April is National Grilled Cheese Month. But just because the month is nearly over doesn't mean we're going to stop celebrating this absurdly decadent childhood classic. There's plenty of comfort food we won't turn down — pizza, ice cream, mac 'n' cheese, the list goes on…but none of those compare to a perfect, tummy-warming, ooey-gooey grilled cheese.

But then, you grow up and learn there's a whole world of gourmet ways to switch things up—fig jam and goat cheese on thin and crispy bread? Manchego with pickles on challah?

Click through to see the winners — and don't even bother trying to exercise that self-restraint.
