Build The Bar
As host, 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. (You can always ask guests to bring extras from their homes.) 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

VEGGIES: Spinach, Pea shoots, Fresh tomatoes, Sun dried tomatoes – whatever is your favorite!
