Who knew it was possible to skip the skillet and make oven grilled cheese? I didn’t until recently. But as I found myself having to whip up a fast dinner for four very hungry kiddos after a long day out, I thought… Why not?
How to make grilled cheese… In your oven
Things I love MOST about this recipe:
- You can make so many sandwiches at once
- There’s literally ZERO cleanup
- They’re all hot when you serve them
In the past we’ve always had to do grilled cheese in batches (because so many kids, y’all), and we end up eating in shifts rather than all together, with many exclamations of “I’m hungry!” or “I want more!” in between. And there’s always a greasy pan and work area to scrub afterward. But not anymore!
This simple trick has totally revolutionized the way we do food.
This recipe is pretty versatile. You can make normal grilled cheese by using just cheddar or colby jack cheese, or transform it into elegant paninis by using mozzarella and proscuitto or salami. We’ve also added a touch of mustard to make the flavors really pop. Let me know what your favorite combination is!
