On days like this, I crave comfort food–the culinary equivalent of my favorite slippers–and one of my favorites is the classic combo, grilled cheese and tomato soup.
However, being an alleged “grown up,” I’ve made a few upgrades to the Wonder bread/Kraft Singles/Campbell’s Soup standby, so put on your slippers, bring the duvet out to the couch, and let’s get cooking.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- French bread (about 1/3 loaf)
- Danish Havarti cheese
- 1 Roma tomato
- Olive oil
- Pacific Roasted Tomato and Red Pepper soup (comes in a box; Trader Joe’s house brand is good too)
Start by cutting four slices of bread. Cut diagonally to increase the surface area. Set the remaining heel aside.
