Grill up a fireside classic: fire roasted 3-cheese paninis

Grill up a fireside classic: fire roasted 3-cheese paninis

Aug 24 2018

It’s nearly impossible to bite into a grilled cheese and not feel happy. But grilled cheeses have come a long way since the days of sliced American and white bread in a pan. Your built-in BBQ grill offers you an array of ways to experiment with exciting options for reinventing this classic fall and winter treat.

Escaping the kitchen and exploring fire-ready cooking tools that remind everyone of simpler times can create new traditions and bring people together around the fire in a timeless, but unexpected way. So turn on the oldies, hide the devices, set up your outdoor living space, and create a fire-roasted panini bar outside to enjoy a new way of dining your friends and family won’t forget.
