Judge’s Choice: The Madisonian
By: Alice Choi of Waunakee, Wisconsin
“The Madisonian is my favorite because not only was it totally delicious, but to me it really captures the essence of Wisconsin. Every part of this sandwich adds so much flavor and, together, the ingredients work brilliantly. The cheesy bread is one of Wisconsin’s star creations, and it works so beautifully with the bratwurst and the mac’ n’ cheese (a genius addition to any grilled cheese in my book!). I seriously love everything about this sandwich!!” - MacKenzie of grilledcheesesocial
Yes, Madison, Wisconsin has a lot to offer — including a grilled cheese sandwich that combines all of the city’s unique flavors and flair. The Madisonian is a delicious ensemble of Wisconsin cheddar, bratwurst, sauerkraut and Dijon mustard on hot and spicy cheese bread. We’re sure your taste buds will enjoy their visit.

“This Dixie sandwich had everything a grilled cheese lover craves, but mainly a healthy dose of deliciously flavored Wisconsin cheese! The melted gooeyness played perfectly with the subtle crunch of the fried green tomato and smoky bacon flavors. This sandwich had all the ingredients for a showdown winner.” - Heidi of Foodie Crush
With a wink and a nod to traditional Southern comfort food, The Dixie aims to please. So much so that it boasts not one or two, but three Wisconsin Cheeses — sharp cheddar, sharp white cheddar, and cream cheese. Add bacon and a fried green tomato on a crispy baguette and you have yourself grilled cheese perfection.

Ooh la la. This tongue tantalizing temptress is the true definition of delicious. With Wisconsin brie, brown sugar roasted pork belly, candied walnuts, and Bosc pears on French sourdough bread generously smothered in onion and fig spread, there’s truly a lot to desire.
Judge’s Choice: The Siesta
By: Sarah Leung of Chester, New Jersey
“I chose The Siesta as my judges’ choice sandwich because of its big, bold Mexican-inspired flavors and textures. It brings the flavors of Mexican cuisine to an American cheesy classic treat. What’s not to love about that?” - Paula of Bell’alimento
Nothing can wake up your taste buds quite like The Siesta. A heavenly combination of cinnamon and chile-spiced carnitas, cilantro-lime cabbage slaw and Wisconsin aged cheddar and swiss, this Mexican-inspired grilled cheese sandwich is an amazing combination of flavors and textures.

By: Laurel Ziemienski of Kenosha, Wisconsin
Are French fries French? Doesn’t matter. Because The Monsieur holds nothing back when it comes to all things flavor. It features crispy duck fat fries happily mingling with Wisconsin parmesan, brie, gouda, and cheese curds. Did we mention the eight thick-cut slices of cherrywood-smoked bacon? Bon appétit.

There is something about a good culinary pun that also tastes good, isn’t there? Well, there was no way to help myself when I got my hands on Wisconsin juustoleipa, also known as “bread cheese.” I had to create something fun to play off of its nickname.

“Grilled cheeses are an important part of our lives. They’re there when it’s cold. There when we had a bad day. They’re even there when we have a bowl of tomato soup. Grilled cheeses are such a vital part of our getting by in life that we’re always looking for ways to make it even better — like covering it in gold.”
