June is National Dairy Month and I’m partnering with the American Dairy Association MidEast to celebrate dairy and the farming families, who work hard to provide us with healthy, wholesome dairy foods!Grilled Cheese has been a favorite in our family since forever. Even before Ken and I had kiddos we would make ourselves grilled cheese for lunch or dinner!
It’s the last week of school!! My oldest son, Noah, graduated from high school this year, he has been out of school for a few weeks, but the other three have school until Friday and then its OH-fishally summer!! Lord help me. Let the never ending stream of kids in and out of our house begin! Eat, swim, eat, swim, play basketball, skateboard, swim, eat, eat, eat, REPEAT!
If you find yourself with a houseful and you’re not quite sure what to feed them, may I suggest setting up a grilled cheese bar? Because who doesn’t like grilled cheese? You already know how cheesy I am, we always have several varieties of cheese on hand.
Cheese is so good for you! Let me give you some cheesy facts…..
Grilled Cheese Bar
- panini press /maker
- Italian Bread sliced 1/2 inches thickness on a slight angle
- Cheese -Cheddar Swiss, American, Mozzarella, Havarti, Provolone, Pepper Jack, Colby (did I miss a cheese, put out what you have no cheese is off limits)
- Extras: Deli Meat sliced thin, bacon, vegetables (tomato, avocado, pepper, greens), thin sliced Apples, Pineapple (put out what you have!)
- Preheat griddle or panini press. Butter one side of two pieces of bread. Place butter sides down on a clean plate or surface, place a slice of cheese on both sides of bread, and then add any other additional ingredients you like in the middle. Place stacked sandwich on hot surface, press down with a spatula, flip when sandwich is desired amount of crispy brown. If using a panini press, place prepared sandwich and press until desired doneness.
