How to Throw a Grilled Cheese Party

Grilled cheese is┬áso much fun. They are simply the best food themed party I’ve had/thrown. It was popular when I hosted a party like this before. Maybe that’s why 54 people showed up to the 4th Annual Grilled Cheese party last month.


How it works:

Host provides sliced bread, butter/mayo for spreading, and tomato soup.

  • Guests bring the ingredients for their GC recipes they will be making.
  • Each guest prepares 2-4 sandwiches, then each sandwich is cut into 6 pieces.
  • Have a prep station for guests to assemble their sandwiches, while 2-3 other guests make their sandwiches on the stove top.
  • When the Sandwich is finished, put it in the oven with the rest of the sandwiches that are staying warm. Keeping the oven at warm or 200 F keeps them warm, the bread crisp and the cheese gooey.
  • When the oven is full/everyone is finished making their sandwiches, cut them up and serve them.

That’s right, it’s a grilled cheese party.
