Host a Grilled Cheese Party

Host a Grilled Cheese Party

Fall has arrived, and the falling leaves, the greyish skies, and falling raindrops have us all wanting to keep warm all day long. October is a wonderful time for friends, and among the hustle and bustle of preparing your Halloween costumes, why not throw a fall get together just for the heck of it? No costumes necessary.

Gather your friends for a grilled cheese and tomato soup party. Here’s how.

Lay out a piece of parchment or brown paper material on your counter and label your types of cheese, meats, and bread available for each guest. Have a crockpot going with a batch of tomato soup, too. Have 2 skillets on your stove with some butter (or non-stick spray) warm and ready to go!


Breads: sourdough, foccacia, ciabatta

Cheeses: extra sharp cheddar, American, brie, smoked gouda, spicy pepperjack, havarti

Meats: turkey, ham, roast beef

Tomato Soup Fixings: pepper flakes, halved cherry tomatoes, sliced avocado, diced red onion, cooked rice, crushed tortilla chips, sour cream

Have your guests choose their poison, and dish up!
