Four easy steps to a winning grilled cheese party:

  1. Use butcher or wax paper instead of a regular tablecloth… and don’t forget the napkins or paper towels!
  2. Lay out a variety of breads: nut bread, sourdough bread, rye bread, etc.
  3. Offer a wide selection of cheeses to suit all tastes: goat cheese, aged cheddar, Swiss cheese, blue cheese, etc.
  4. Finally, choose a few condiments to help make each grilled cheese unique: sundried tomatoes, Dijon mustard, pesto, sliced apples or pears, fresh herbs, smoked salmon, marmalade, chutney, etc.

Invite your guests to create their very own signature grilled cheese, then lightly brush both sides of the sandwiches with olive oil and grill to perfection on your BBQ! Now all that’s left to do is sit back and devour your ooey, gooey cheesy creations!

Grilled cheese preparation steps

Pair it with:

Light, refreshing whites from the Fruity and Vibrant category. We love El Petit Bonhomme, a Spanish wine made with local grape variety Verdejo, which is very similar to Sauvignon Blanc.

Feeling more red? Opt for light reds with supple tannins and serve them slightly chilled.
