Grilled Cheese For A Crowd

Two pans, 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

Grilled Cheese For A Crowd

Two pans, 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 good bread
  • 1 1/2 pounds Colby Jack cheese
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place 2 jelly roll pans (or cookie sheets) in the oven, on separate racks.
  2. Meanwhile, shred cheese with a cheese grater. Set aside.
  3. Then prep sandwiches: generously butter a piece of bread, place it face down on a cutting board. Add a handful of cheese on top of the bread. Place a piece 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, but with wider slices you will only get 8 sandwiches.
  4. Once your sandwiches are prepared, remove 1 hot cookie sheet from the oven and place it on a cooling rack. Place sandwiches on cookie sheet and place the second cookie on top. Place the stacked sheets into the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes (or until golden brown), flipping the sandwiches half way through.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
DONNA'S NOTES
  1. Check sandwiches at about 5 minutes. If they are starting to brown, flip them and watch them carefully.
  2. You can also use cheese slices. Place 2 slices on each sandwich.

  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!
