    The Best

    Tomato soup and grilled cheese, you can't have one without the other. But IMHO, it's the best comfort food there is. If I'm feeling down, this is usually where I go.

    Cheddar Grilled Cheese With..

    I agree with most everyone especially if you live some place that rains a lot or is colder most of the year. I enjoy it on a rainy day or a snowy day. Cheddar cheese is my favorite, though I am starting to like swiss more especially when I combine the two cheeses. I also like to...

    My mom almost never makes it. She'll make grilled cheese at times, but never with tomato soup. It makes me feel deprived. Grilled cheese on rye bread, with swiss cheese and tomatoes, is the best. My aunt made it for me once... at least she makes me good food. I really like all...

    Addicted To Grilled Cheese

    I enjoy them both. However, I've never had them together, as far as I can recall, for the same meal. I can eat tomato soup till the ploughs come home. But grilled cheese, that's something else. My mother grilled cheese for us as kids. Tasty cheddar. Under a full temp griller for...

    This is something my mother would make me

    and my sister when we were kids and it just stuck. It's so simple yet so good. I rarely cook as I don't particularly care for it. But I make myself this quite often.

    Tomato soup makes a good dipping sauce for grilled cheese sandwiches... Of course, once the sandwich is gone, you've gotta put so many crackers in the soup as to allow your spoon to stand up straight in it, LOL. ONLY THEN can you eat it!

    Feeling Down?

    There's nothing like comfort food to cheer me up.  A bowl of Tomato Soup cries out to be paired with Grilled Cheese.  Yummmm.    Mashed Potatoes with Gravy...mmmmmm.     Ice Cream with Chocolate Sauce.   Oh...there's that time during the month...

    Ultimate Comfort Food.

    Grilled cheese and tomato soup is perfect for cold days. I put some garlic and Italian seasoning in my soup and dip my grilled cheese in it. It's such a comfort.

    Tonight, A Twist!

    Tonight, I had tomato soup, nothing different.  But instead of grilled cheese I had garlic toast.  What it lacked in cheesy melty wonderfulness, the toast made up for in crispy-toasty goodness!

    Really want 3 nice golden brown grilled cheese

    sandwiches and a steamy hot bowl of tomato soup... We have bread, we have milk, we have a can of tomato soup, we have butter... What we don't have is the damn cheese. Why must the cheese be gone?

    Memories of Grandma

    She would make that ALL the time, in fact I knew I was going to eat it at least once before I left her house. It was her staple, as was chicken noodle soup, but tomato and grilled cheese was always one of my favorites. warm food memory to go along with the meal :)

    Always Nostalgic

    It was one of foods that I loved as a kid and still love now. My mom would always make it based on this recipe from a Disney cook book. I like my grilled cheese with tomatoes and mushrooms and I like my tomato soup plain.

    Edam Cheese Is the Best

    I made it like a schnitzel. 5mm slice in an egg, flower and bread crumb fried to golden colour with french fries and tartar sauce. Drink with nice chilled beer. Yummy You can add slice of ham to it for more taste. Enjoy
