You can thank Orange County, California-based gourmet sandwich shop Burnt Crumbs for coming up with the cheesy carb bomb (starch on starch, yo!). According to Foodbeast‘s Marc Kharrat, it was actually created as a bit of an afterthought, when the head chef decided to slap some leftover spaghetti and cheese between two slices of garlic bread.
Although it seems like something that would be polarizing — because seriously, do we really need spaghetti and bread and cheese, unless we’re planning on running a marathon or angling for the world’s best nap? — the spaghetti grilled cheese sandwich has taken off like wildfire.
