Yesterday was wine and cheese, and today I present another classic pairing: tomato soup and grilled cheese! Sometimes the simplest pairings are the most delicious, such is the case with this grilled cheese. Gooey cheese and a layer of concentrated tomato soup spread on each slice brings that classic flavour right into the palm of your hands. No spoons needed!

I must admit, my first attempt at this one was a complete disaster, see exhibit a)

Exhibit a) Failure. Delicious, delicious failure.

For my first attempt, I tried to do this french toast style, adding a little milk to the soup concentrate, dipping the bread in, then frying it. Of course this ended in a soggy grilled cheese mess, but boy was it delicious! Not one to be wasteful, I grabbed a fork and dug in. Cheese melting all over the place, tomato soup juicing everywhere, a caramelized crust of tomato soup and cheese, such a beautiful mess!

Once I got this out of the way (and into my belly), I proceeded to plan B, which fortunately what a success!

I know some people aren’t big fans of the grandiose grilled cheese sandwiches, so this one is for you guys! Super simple, still classic, just slightly reinvented!
