Wine and cheese are a classic pairing for a good reason: Astringent items (like wine) and fatty foods (like cheese) balance each other on your tongue, making each flavor stand out more. Next time you're having a party, tempt guests with savory bites loaded with goat cheese, Brie, Gorgonzola and more. You should probably plan to make seconds!
Hot tip: You can make these grilled cheese sandwiches up to an hour ahead of time. Just heat in a 450 degree oven for 3 to 5 minutes to warm them through before serving. We won't tell if you taste-test a few!
