Ingredients
    For Grilled Cheese:
  • 2 slices of bread (white or whole wheat)
  • 2 slices of cheese (cheddar, American, or your favorite melting cheese)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • For Tomato Soup:
  • 1/2 cup canned tomato soup
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: pinch of sugar (if the soup is too acidic for your taste)
Instructions
    Prepare the Tomato Soup:
  1. In a small saucepan, heat the canned tomato soup over medium heat. Stir in the milk or cream and let it simmer gently for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If the soup is too acidic, add a pinch of sugar to balance the flavors. Keep warm on low heat while you prepare the grilled cheese.
  2. Assemble the Grilled Cheese:
  3. Place a slice of cheese between the two slices of bread to form a sandwich. Spread softened butter on the outsides of the bread slices.
  4. Cook the Grilled Cheese:
  5. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Place the sandwich in the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  6. Serve:
  7. Once the grilled cheese is cooked to your liking, remove it from the skillet and cut it in half diagonally. Serve the grilled cheese alongside the warm tomato soup in a bowl.
  8. Enjoy:
  9. Dip the grilled cheese into the creamy tomato soup and savor the comforting flavors of this classic combination.
Note
  • Feel free to customize your grilled cheese by adding sliced tomatoes, cooked bacon, or caramelized onions.
  • For a quicker option, you can use store-bought tomato soup instead of making it from scratch.
  • Adjust the amount of cheese and butter according to your preference.
  • This meal is best enjoyed during colder months but is comforting any time of the year.
