Hot Holding Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi Chefs.

 

I will be hosting a outdoor event later this month and we will be serving Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. I need to have a large number of them ready to be served over a short time.  Due to the lack of time and grill space I need to have the sandwiches cooked and ready to go for service. 

 

What would be the best method to hold the sandwiches and keep them from drying out or going soggy? Even a 20 minute holding time, as long as it did not affect the quality of the sandwich would be a life saver.

 

Many thanks in advance

 

Pierre.

I hate grilled cheese for just that reason. In two years of trying I have not come up with a decent method of holding them other than wrapping in foil.... which only works for about 20-30 minutes. After that they get hard around the edge, soggy in the middle and become the bane of my existence. The only thing I've found that works any better is increasing my food costs exponentially and using a heartier bread like sourdough or shepherd's bread.
