Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup was another one of those meals that I used to cringe at when my parents would say that’s what was for dinner. I HATED Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup growing up, definitely a meal I would avoid at all costs.
Now that I am a little bit older and a little bit wiser, I am able to dissect where exactly this meal would go wrong.
Here are the conclusions I came too:
- My parents made the grilled cheese with a tasteless bread I never cared for.
- They would use American Cheese (american cheese taste like poop)
- They used Campbell’s Tomato Soup ( more poop)
- They would butter the hell out of the grilled cheeses so they were very greasy.
Nothing against my parents, but I have found away to revamp this combo to make it a little bit healthier and one of my favorite meals.
I bring to you Meghann’s Revamped Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup.
This grilled cheese packs a mean punch thanks to the last two slice of Jenna’s Oatmeal Bread I used to contain the gooey cheese. My other secret ingredients? Swiss Cheese, Goat Cheese, Apple and Spinach. Holy Yum! Now this is a grilled cheese I love to sink my teeth into.
Also instead of going the buttery fry pan routed I ‘grilled’ this sandwich on the George Foreman. I’m happy to say this Grilled Cheese was grease free.
And now that I am breaching out into the soup world I have discovered the wonders and joys of Amy’s Chunky Tomato Bisque Soup.
A 1 Cup serving was perfect for dipping the cheesy sammy.
So what do you think about this grilled cheese creation? Do you make grilled cheeses or any other sandwich different then when you were growing up? I know PB &J was another sandwich I hated growing up, but again with a few slight changes I am able to enjoy it on my terms. The differences? Toasted good bread, Cashew or Almond Butter and fresh berries instead of jelly. A revamp on a classic sandwich that I enjoy 10 times more then the original..
Before lunch I snacked on a mixed nut combo that included Almonds, Pecans and Brazil Nuts.
Time to get back to work. I have a Team in Training run tonight, which should make for another 5 minute meal tonight.
