So...
Do I win the 'worst mommy' award if I admit that my boys have never been to a sleepover?!?! Never. Ever. Not one.

I mean, we have gone on overnight road trips with friends and countless camping trips with other families. So, does that count? The point of a sleepover is to have fun with friends for a hefty block of time, right?

So, on our trips with friends, we do crafts...


We cook...


We hike...


And we lounge on the couch and watch movies...


I think it counts. I'm just gonna say it counts. Anyway, I love hosting 'bars' for group meals. You know S'mores Bars, Taco Bars, Bloody Mary Bars.


It takes all the last minute assembly of a dish off the host or hostess and anything that is less work for me, lets me enjoy the party even more. Here's how I host an easy sleepover dinner...

DIY Grilled Cheese Bar

First, grilled cheese is not all about the cheese. You think that grilled cheese is about the cheese and that's certainly important, but there are a lot of elements needed to inspire grilled cheese creativity. And, yes, I did actually buy that cheese (pictured above) because it had my name on it!


As I wrote: I like to inspire creativity in my food bars. So I provide a variety of ingredients for guests! At this DIY Grilled Cheese Bar, I gave them everything from nasturium blossoms to prosciutto and radish flowers to dandelion pesto. I pickled onions, made blackberry jam, and crisped sage leaves. 


I offered six different kinds of cheese and four different kinds of bread.

Here are some grilled cheese basics to get you started...

Choose a hardy bread. Breads with dense crumb stand up better on the grill. 


Use thin slices of cheese in multiple layers. While thick slices of cheese are great to grab off the cutting board, thinner slices melt more easily. 

It's all about the extras. Well, it’s a balance, I suppose. But lots of extras add personality and intrigue to the sandwiches. Just make sure that there is a balance of extras plus cheese so that it all melts together into gooey deliciousness.


To cook the sandwiches, keep your heat low and melt slowly. Turning up the heat too high results in burnt bread and unmelted cheese.


What do you think? How do you make the perfect grilled cheese sandwich?!
