the perfect pair

Post image for the perfect pair

in my mind there are few things better than grilled cheese and tomato soup.  especially when it’s cold out – but really, it’s good any time. while i’m perfectly content with my usual campbell’s tomato soup and wheat bread + cheddar, i found some recipes online that look pretty out of this world.

this tomato basil soup looks sooooo good – love the idea of topping with fresh basil and thin slices of parmesan cheese!

recipe here.


now for the grilled cheese part – this one stopped me dead in my tracks.  its made with homemade beer bread, sharp cheddar and fontina cheese, dijon mustard and caramelized onions – and though i’d probably do it without the onions, it looks incredible – not to mention combines three of my favorite things ;)

Everything about those pics is gorgeously yummy. Oh my goodness! :)
The beer bread one made me immediately think of the grilled cheese sandwich Dock Street Brewery (in West Philly) had during Philly Beer Week.
They had a bread made using their “Man full of trouble” beer in a collab with Metropolitan bakery, and it was a m a zing!!!! Sosososososo GOOD! gah! :)
Thanks for posting these today, I know what I’m having for lunch ;)

There is really nothing better. Especially during the winter, it’s the perfect, simple meal to cozy up with, and you can always dress up a grilled cheese with all sorts of fun ingredients!

I agree- Tomato soup is a favorite of fine. I am so lazy though, and never make it myself. Campbell select has a great Tomato Basil, which is usually my go to cold weather lunch.

Oh, it looks so delish, and perfect for the cold weather we are having in Philly right now. I am going to make this one tomorrow while I watch the ice storm blow outside.
