My Grilled Cheese And Tomato Soup Recipe @pinch

Tomato soup and grilled cheese are a classic flavor combo that Vail has managed to take over the top. Don't skimp on all four types of cheese. They are a must to complete this dynamic duo and make for a gooey grilled cheese. The tomato soup is creamy and robust. We can't imagine a better way to warm up after being outside on a cold day. Seriously one of my favorite things to make AND eat! It's good for any time of year - picnic in the summer or next to a fire in the winter. Hope you enjoy it.

  • For the grilled cheese
  • butter one side of each slice of bread. (It's important to butter the bread and not the pan so that the toast browns more evenly.) Put an even amount of slices of each type of cheese on half of the bread slices. Top each with a second bread slice to form your sandwiches. Grill on a flat pan or use panini press or personal-size grill for about 5-7 minutes.
