Ham-Red Pepper Jelly Grilled Cheese
Skip the skillet and turn on the oven: That's one secret to grilled cheese for a crowd.
Why This Recipe Works
To jump-start cooking and crisping our Ham-Red Pepper Jelly Grilled Cheese Sandwiches for a Crowd, we let the baking sheet preheat in the oven before cooking the sandwiches. When it came to the cheese, we found cheddar was full of flavor, but didn’t melt as readily as other cheeses. When we combined it with easy-melting Monterey Jack, we found the perfect combination of flavor and texture. Shredding the cheeses also helped them to melt faster. We didn’t have a panini press large enough to accommodate eight sandwiches, so we made our own makeshift one using a Dutch oven.
