The Easiest Way to Serve Grilled Cheese to a Crowd
Grilled cheese is the ultimate comfort food, which is why it’s such a crowd-pleaser. Whether you’re making lunch for a group of hungry kids or you’re having friends over for a cozy dinner party, you can’t go wrong with grilled cheese. The only downside? Standing over the stove with a spatula while those kids play unsupervised outside or your friends hang out in the next room. Enter: the sheet pan grilled cheese.
With this method you can make six grilled cheese sandwiches at once. You can cut them diagonally to make the traditional triangle-shaped halves or slice them into strips (perfect for dunking into soup) or cubes to use as “croutons.”
All you need for this recipe is your favorite sandwich bread, sliced cheese, and softened butter. Then you just have to do some strategic layering before putting the sheet pan in a 450°F oven to bake for about 10 to 12 minutes. You will have to flip them halfway through baking, but that’s still less of a hassle than watching and flipping each sandwich individually on the stovetop.
Heat up some tomato soup and pour some red wine (for the adults only, of course), and you’ve got perfect grilled cheese for a crowd!
