Grilled Cheese + Tomato Soup

September 6, 2011

Grilled cheese + tomato soup = ultimate comfort food. This classic staple brings me back to Mom’s kitchen at the start of a new school year. Mom never let us “starve” as we claimed we always were. It was typical to throw our backpacks by the door, give Mom a hug, and politely beg for a snack. After all, thinking makes a growing brain hungry! If we were really lucky she’d bust out one of our favorites, grilled cheese (made on leftover french bread used from making french toast) and tomato soup. Sometimes we’d have it for a rainy fall saturday lunch. It’s just the best and so are the memories associated with it.

Well, passing the tradition on I took a go at creating a homemade tomato soup recipe and an updated rendition of the classic American sandwhich. Bubba had his “kabob” style. While the Mister said that was too dainty for his liking.

Either way you slice it, this has now become one of our family’s favorites!

    Yum! I can’t wait to try this for my blog – I love trying out new tomato soup recipes as it is my FAVOURITE flavour of soup and every recipe seems to taste just a bit different! Btw, love the idea of serving it in mugs too – I’ve done that before but never clear ones, and that just shows off its amazing colour to the fullest! Amazing, Missy!

    I’ve been making this for a few weeks now, and it is delicious! I love the flavor of the soup, so unique and nothing like regular tomato soup. I just use a normal artisan loaf from Costco and the grilled cheese is to die for. Thanks for the recipe!
