Grilled Cheese Bar Ideas

Step 1

Choose your butter! Cabot is an easy choice.

Step 2

Pick a bread!

Step 3

Stack up your favorite cheese. Any of our Cabot classic or flavored cheeses are going to be a win!

Step 4

Add Toppings. Veggies, protein, spreads – get creative and bold!


How to Build Your Grilled Cheese Bar

You will need to provide:

  • An assortment of breads, cheeses, vegetables, proteins and spreads (see below for ideas)
  • Cutting boards and knives for assembly
  • Griddles, large skillets and/or a Panini press for cooking the sandwiches. We love our Lodge Cast Iron Square Panini Press.
  • Plates and napkins
  • Optional: A pot of tomato soup—the classic pairing for grilled cheese sandwiches. Our Tomato-Cheddar Soup recipe serves 6!

If someone wants to help, ask them to supply drinks and dessert! We paired our creations with a lovely Rosé and a variety of delicious beers.
