The Sims 4 has a lot of different fun aspirations to play and many of them lend themselves to realistic game play. However, the game also has some much loved less realistic features like setting your life’s goal to eat as much grilled cheese as possible!
The Grilled Cheese Aspiration is in the base game and has to be unlocked through game play, so you cannot set it as your sim’s first aspiration in CAS.
Here’s everything you need to know about playing this aspiration:
How to Unlock the Hidden Grilled Cheese Aspiration
Get your Sim to eat three plates of grilled cheese in a row to unlock the aspiration – it’s that simple!

Tips to Help You Complete the Grilled Cheese Aspiration
Traits (To Use)
Sims with the “Glutton” trait get hungry easily and will enjoy eating no matter the quality of the food. This is useful for the Grilled Cheese Aspiration because your Sim may not have a high cooking skill when starting the aspiration, so their grilled cheese sandwiches might be low quality and Glutton sims will still happily eat all of them!
Sims with the “Foodie” trait will be able to gain cooking skill from watching cooking shows and have fun when cooking, so getting them to make grilled cheese sandwiches over and over again won’t bother them.
Reward Potions and Traits (To Purchase)
All of these potions and traits increase the speed that your Sim increases their cooking skill and with that increase the quality of their grilled cheese sandwiches!
Inspired Potion (200 Satisfaction Points)
Morning Sim (1,000 Satisfaction Points)
Night Owl (1,000 Satisfaction Points)
Stoves and Grills Master (1,500 Satisfaction Points – comes with the Sims 4 Outdoor retreat)
Savant (4,000 Satisfaction Points)
With these traits your Sim will also gain other skills quickly, which is useful for the charisma and rocket science skills that also help in completing the Grilled Cheese Aspiration. You can easily cheat your sim’s satisfaction points (check out this post!) if they don’t have enough to buy the rewards traits.
Lot Traits (To Assign in Build Mode)
Useful lot traits for skill building to help in completing this aspiration are:
Both of these lot traits come with the base game.

Click on the rocket ship and the option to do this task will appear. There are different ways of finding a rocket ship in the game:

The Grim Reaper will come to your lot if any Sim dies (pet or not) and your Sim can then chat to them about grilled cheese. You might have to force the death of a Sim to be able to complete this task!

I love playing with this hidden aspiration especially when my Sim unlocks it accidentally because grilled cheese is all they have in the fridge and their hunger bar is super low so you just kept making them grab servings. I also like playing this aspiration as a fun addition to the game if I have already completed my sim’s first aspiration!
