Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Place a slice of Kefalograviera (Greece), Kerrygold (Ireland), and Red Gouda (Holland) cheese on two slices of old country bread. Spread with a bit of butter and place on a hot pan or panini press until the cheese melts.

Combine slices of Raclette (Switzerland), Organic Sharp Cheddar (Australia) and Asiago (Italy) on slices of focaccia (Italy) bread. Spread with a bit of butter and place on a hot pan or Panini press until the cheese melts.

Combine Limburger (Germany), a unique aged soft cheese, with Pepper Jack Cheese (America), sprinkled with spicy peppers, on slices of Pullman bread. Spread with a bit of butter and place on a hot pan or panini press until the cheese melts. Zoitas says that she thinks this combination creates the ultimate grilled cheese.

Mini Welsh Rarebit with Roasted Pepper Chutney

Welsh rarebit (or rabbit) doesn't actually contain meal from the floppy-eared animal. These cheesy toast and pepper bites are a great addition to any party spread.
