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!
Build Your Own Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Here are our picks for the ultimate grilled cheese party spread:
Step 1: Choose Your Butter
Cabot’s creamy award-winning butter, of course!
Step 2: Pick Your Favorite Bread
Wheat sandwich bread, White French loaf, Mini rolls
(Mini rolls are adorable for making bite sized grilled cheeses—and they fit our Cabot Cracker Cuts perfectly!)
Step 3: Stack Your Favorite Cheese(s)
(We think anything from our Cracker Cuts line is ideal—and comes pre-sliced for your convenience!)
Step 4: Add Toppings
|VEGGIES: Spinach, Pea shoots, Fresh tomatoes, Sun dried tomatoes – whatever is your favorite!
PROTEIN: Ham, Pepperoni, Salami – or your other go-tos
SPREADS: Fig Spread, Hot pepper jelly, Pesto – be creative!
