Back when we lived in Ann Arbor, we held an annual Oscars Party complete with a red carpet, fancy dress (UK style, meaning costumes), and lots of champagne. The first year, our last guest left at 4:30am (yes, on a Monday morning), we had to split the bottles for recycling over the following four weeks, and those who made it to work the next day went with raging hangovers.

The second year, we got wiser and moved it to Saturday night (which was fine, since no on watched the awards show anyway), set up our George Foreman grill and made grilled cheese sandwiches to soak up all the champagne. 

Our dear friend, Bhavna, brought the ingredients to make grilled cheese the way she grew up eating them in India. OMG. A game changer! Think grilled cheese with Indian pesto. Our recipe is a riff on hers.

Oh, and we always bake our grilled cheese—that way no one is stuck at the stove and everyone can eat at the same time.

    When we’re not making these to soak up champagne, we like to serve with our Simple Tomato Soup
