By baking this grilled cheese in the oven you can make up to 10 sandwiches at a time!  And I should tell you that you can make this ahead of time, and reheat it in the oven and it’s just as good as the first time around!  So if you have a busy night make this earlier in the day and then as the fam rolls in you can reheat their Parmesan Crusted Grilled Cheese for them.  I know. It don’t get any better than this…am I right?! It tastes like pizza but it looks like grilled cheese, but my kiddos say it’s better than both!

The key to the parmesan getting all crusty and scrumptious on the outside  is a hot oven, and preheating the top pan first.  So while you are assembling the sandwiches, place a baking sheet in the oven allowing it to get hot, then place it on top of the grilled cheeses,  give it a light press with your oven-mitted paws,  put this back in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes and zer ya go!

The best grilled cheese on the planet is ready and waiting!

I have never met a cheese that I didn’t like. I love cheese!  Cheese GLORIOUS Cheese…Oh how I love cheese, everything about it is exciting…..when I start to eat it I want MOOOORE! (This was sung to the tune of the well known song Cheese Glorious Cheese.  You can find this song…only in my head.)   More cheese please.

DIY- photo project

I am not a DIYer, well let me clarify.  I do DIY, but I do not do it well, nor do I enjoy it.  I’d rather be in the kitchen making 80 pies or a feast for 50 than painting walls, or refinishing furniture.  I have done both of those, I also have sewn quilts […]

Chicken Fajitas (for a crowd)

When we travel I like to eat out, but honestly it gets to be a bit much especially when traveling with a crowd, so usually I will cook half of the meals in and the other half we will eat out.  Vacation meals are never fussy.  A protein, veggie, maybe a salad and bread….always bread. […]

Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodle

There are many versions of this classic cookie.  People have their definite opinions (at least in my house) on what a snickerdoodle should taste like.  Chewy yet crisp, melt in your mouth and cakey, big but not too thick, and definitely not thin.  They’re not picky or anything.   I’m gonna go out on a […]

Read any great books lately?  I was hoping to get more reading done this winter than I have.  My list of “want to read” keeps getting longer, and the pile of books beside my bed keeps getting bigger.  Gives me something to look forward to I guess….how awful would it be if you couldn’t’ find […]
