Add bacon, avocado, grilled onions, or tomatoes. You can’t really go wrong. Dip your grilled cheese in creamy tomato basil soup if you are feeling extra fancy. Yum!
4. Chicken Broccoli Cheese Casserole
This cheesy chicken broccoli casserole is something your grandma would whip up at Thanksgiving. But why wait for Thanksgiving when you can just make it yourself? We love an independent cooking queen!

Macaroni and cheese is such a classic childhood favorite. If your grandma or mom didn’t make you some bomb mac and cheese, this is your chance to make it yourself! Get some elbow pasta at the grocery store, and melt cheddar cheese, butter and herbs over a hot stove. Mmmm! Comfort food at its finest.
