Grilled Cheese Bar to Celebrate National Grilled Cheese Month


Grilled cheese – a simple combination of butter, bread, and cheese.  There is something truly magical about the soft butter spreading on bread, hitting a hot pan and browning perfectly while the cheese inside becomes ooey gooey.  A truly sublime experience and one that can be enjoyed at any time of day for any meal or at snack time.  Here are some of our favorite grilled cheeses shared with us on instagram by cheeselovers from around the foodiesphere  – what great inspiration for your grilled cheese celebration.

Inspiration for your Grilled Cheese Party Bar

Everyone loves being in the kitchen for a party so we made the kitchen the party and set up a grilled cheese bar to bring everyone together for April Sandwich Night and to celebrate this great month.  Don’t worry, if you miss Grilled Cheese Month, any day, any month, any hour is reason to celebrate the Grilled Cheese.

The great thing about grilled cheese – the measurements aren’t exact as grilled cheese is all about what looks right piled between the slices of bread.  The sky is the limit – anything can go between two pieces of bread – so let your imagination soar.

1.  Assemble a Plate of  Cheeses

Most grocery stores these days have a wonderful cheese case where you can select many cheeses for your grilled cheese party.  Pick some strong cheeses, some mild cheeses, some colorful cheeses, some savory, some sweet . . .we are drooling just thinking about it.
