Introducing Grilled Cheese In A New Light

“Grilled cheese and tomato soup is the 

ultimate comfort meal.” - Ina Garten 


One of the best things about modern weddings is that they often incorporate the comfortable into the formal, the familiar with the traditional. Nowhere is this more evident than in the food served at most wedding receptions: From fun bite-sized dishes to comfort foods and even more exotic fare, wedding food and wedding desserts tend to be a highlight for many guests and it also reflects the couples’ shared traditions, goals, and approach to life. If there is one thing that “Barefoot Contessa” Ina Garten knows, it is how to host a party and, above all, how to make people feel welcome and comfortable.


Fun Facts on Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grilled Cheese are mentioned in Ancient Roman texts — the French have been making their famous croque monsieurs since the early 1900s. During World War II, Navy cooks prepared countless "American cheese filling sandwiches" — as instructed by government-issued cookbooks — in ships' kitchens. In the 1940s and '50s, these were usually served open-faced, also known as "Cheese Dream" during the Great Depression, and consisted of one slice of bread topped with grated cheese.

On that note, grilled cheese recipes are growing in popularity and in exotic ways that incorporate savory, sweet, and unique combinations in a format that everyone can understand. It is one of the most popular food categories out there and often ranks alongside home staples such as macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, fried chicken, and other foods associated with comfort and family.

Dips and Sides that guarantee 
a great Grilled Cheese

But there’s also something else that is awesome about grilled cheese sandwiches that make them perfect for wedding receptions, aside from their versatility. And that is their price. You can get more out of your catering budget if you incorporate a few of these ideas into your wedding menu. Trust us, it’s no small thing to be able to economize in this area as, more often than not, people underestimate their need for food and how much guests want to eat.

Sparkling/White Wines that pair well
 with a great Grilled Cheese

You want your ceremony to be beautiful, and the reception memorable. To do that, you will want to offer guests something new, something old, and a little bit of something out of the ordinary. We’ve kept that in mind while looking through the many, many food and dessert ideas that would bring all three. So, we narrowed it down to grilled cheese sandwiches that combined the exotic with the comforting and also looked at presentation as well as general tenor of the dish itself. Some of our favorite ideas include the peach bacon brie grilled cheese, chicken parmesan grilled cheese, and the decadent blackberry cheesecake grilled cheese sandwich. While a great grilled cheese stands alone, sometimes a great dip or a side dish can make it even more delicious - pickled vegetables, tomato sauce, salad dressing, soup, or chutney/jam.  And, they all pair well with a great bottle of sparkling/white wine - Muscadet, Moscato Sparkling, Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc, Vinho Verde, White Chardonnay, just to name a few.

Introducing Grilled Cheese In A New Light
Final Thoughts
Whether you’re going for very formal fare or you want something a little bit more fun, grilled cheese sandwiches come in such a variety that you can’t help but find something that will work with your ceremony. If it is the decadence of chocolate, the sweetness of jam and brie, or the savory combination of bacon and cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches are perfect for large and small receptions and also arrive at price points that are pretty hard to beat. This will allow you to not only show off your creativity but also give you that extra bit of wiggle room in your wedding budget for use elsewhere such as on more food, better quality food, decor, or whatever your heart desires.

  6. Wonderful idea for a party of any kind. Do you make them 'on command' as folks want them or set out big platters? I am hosting a party in the middle of June, about 30 people. I have access to 3 panini makers.

    1. Sorry for the delay Liz. We encountered a little problem with the blog platform. With that, I think it's best to make them on demand for your guests. This way it will be warm and crunchy and not soggy. Let me know how your event in June turns out. Remember, pair with either a sparkling/white (chilled) wine.
