Get an inside-out grilled cheese at the Indiana State Fair

Grilled Cheese You Say? Yes, Please!

Perfectly browned crispy cheddar cheese on the outside of two pieces of buttered garlic toast filled with hot gooey gouda cheese. YUM! I was finally getting to try the winning grilled cheese sandwich at the Indiana State Fair dubbed the “inside out grilled cheese” and it was worth the wait. Better yet, the cheese comes straight from Heritage Ridge Creamery.

For the last three years, the American Dairy Association of Indiana has hosted the Ultimate Grilled Cheese Contest during the State Fair. The winning entry joins the other grilled cheese options at the Main Street Dairy Bar the following year. Other menu options offered at the Main Street Dairy Bar are milk shakes, yogurt, ice cream, mozzarella sticks, white and chocolate milk, pretzel bites, applesauce and cottage cheese. It’s not hard to get your “3-A-Day” of dairy at the Indiana State Fair!

Each day at the Dairy Bar provides a chance for fair goers to get a meal at a great price. For only $6, they receive a grilled cheese sandwich and a milkshake. The Dairy Bar even offers 50 cent cups of milk with only 25 cent refills and sippy cups or bottles are filled for free.

“I appreciate a healthy option for meals while at the fair. We always look forward to visiting the Dairy Bar for sandwiches and milkshakes every year,” said fairgoer Jeanie.

The best part of the Main Street Dairy Bar is they use Indiana’s own Heritage Ridge Creamery cheese to make the grilled cheese sandwiches. After the Indiana State Fair, come visit Heritage Ridge Creamery in Middlebury to purchase cheese to make your favorite grilled cheese or even create a fun, new combination to enter in the 2019 Ultimate Grilled Cheese Contest using lots of cheese and butter.
