Grilled Cheese For A Crowd

One pan, a dozen or so sandwiches and viola!  You have a grilled cheese, with this easy recipe, for the whole gang in under 30 minutes WITHOUT standing in front of the hot stove.

National Grilled Cheese Month is the best time to share my trick for making grilled cheese for a crowd!  When you have a party or have friends over for dinner the last thing you want to do is stand in front of the stove making sandwiches.

This recipe puts an end to that labor intensive method. 




Yield: 8-12 sandwiches

Grilled Cheese For A Crowd

One pan, a dozen or so sandwiches and viola! You have a grilled cheese, with this easy recipe, for the whole gang in under 30 minutes WITHOUT standing in front of the hot stove.
Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 15 MinTotal time: 25 Min

Ingredients

  • 24 slices of thick sliced bread (Texas toast is great)
  • 12 thick slices Swiss cheese
  • 12 thick slices mild cheddar cheese
  • 12 ounces Brie cheese, sliced thin
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. 
  2. Prep sandwiches: generously butter a slice of bread, place it face down on your jelly roll pan or baking sheet. 
  3. Place a slice of Swiss cheese on each slice of bread. Top the with slices of Brie, then finish each with a slice of mild cheddar with 3 slices total. 
  4. Place a slice of bread on top and butter the top of the second slice of bread. Set aside and repeat until you have enough sandwiches to fill your baking sheets. *I made 12 sandwiches
  5. Once your sandwiches are prepared, place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for approximately 8-10 minutes (or until very golden brown and the cheeses are melty), flip the sandwiches after the first 5 minutes of bake time.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
DONNA'S NOTES
  1. Check sandwiches at about 4 minutes. If they are starting to brown, flip them and watch them carefully.
  2. You can customize this recipe with different cheeses to suit your taste: Colby Jack, American, provolone, gruyere, Monterey Jack, pepper Jack, Havarti, Gouda, Manchego and Fontina are all great melting cheeses and amazing in grilled cheese.

  1. Been wanting to try this since I read it on your blog. Had the opportunity this morning to use the same technique for french toast!
