Grilled cheese and tomato soup... what a perfect pairing.

Can't do tomato soup! When I was little I used to eat grilled cheese and tomato soup and I would almost always get a headache. I remember one time I had that at school and remember getting sick and being sent home. My mom said that she didn't want me to eat grilled cheese and tomato soup ever again. I remember being upset because grilled cheese was my favorite! Next time they had grilled cheese and tomato soup at school I just had the sandwich and didnt order the soup and lo and behold I didn't get sick :) To this day even as an adult I don't eat tomato soup. I don't even have it in the house but I still enjoy my grilled cheese!

I put a slice of bread on the skillet (lightly buttered) without adding the cheese slices which traps in moisture which hinders the bread from getting nice and crispy. I start off with not too hot a pan as to let it crisp up slowly to a nice crispiness. I then add the cheese slices, the other half of bread and flip it. However, the other side when cooking doesn't get as crispy as the first side, again probably due to the moisture content of common store bread.

Don't gourmet grilled cheeze places use a bread with a less moisture content?
I think you will get much better results if you use a different
bread...unless White Bread is your favorite. In order to get the
bread to "brown-up" and get crispy, it's very important to cook
them on Medium-High heat (about 350) butter the bread
normally and put the Cheese on it right away and then put the
other slice of buttered bread on top, right away.

By doing it this way the Cheese will melt better...or you can try
the "Double Grilled" Grilled Cheese Sandwich; as seen in the
pics below.

I mixed some Olive Oil into the Butter to make it a tiny bit more
healthy. Click on each picture to see it FULL size.



Next I buttered two slices of Sourdough Bread like normal..
this is the sandwich on the left..the slices of bread on the right
have been buttered on both sides...to make the "Double Grilled"
Grilled Cheese Sandwich.


As you can see, the regular Grilled Cheese is on the left, and I
have placed the Cheese on it as soon as the bread was put in the
skillet and put the top slice of bread on as well.
...the sandwich on the right has both sides of the bread
buttered


Next...I have flipped the two slices of bread on the right side
and will put the Cheese on the Grilled side of the bread now.


Next...I have placed the Cheese and the top on the "Double
Grilled" Grilled Cheese sandwich.


Next...I have flipped over the regular Grilled Cheese sandwich
on the left...look at how crispy the bread is.


Next...Here I have flipped over the "Double Grilled" Grilled
Cheese sandwich on the right.


see the next post for the final pics.

Lastly .....
...Below you can see the finished results of both
sandwiches, including the inside. Notice how crispy the bread
is on the inside and outside of the sandwich on the right, that's
why I call it the "Double Grilled" Grilled Cheese sandwich.

Are you sensitive to MSG? Lots of soup has MSG and it causes a weird sort of headache.

Not that I know of. I can eat most things and it doesn't bother me. I haven't had tomato soup since about 3rd grade. Its probably a traumatic food experience I've just not been able together past. But even the smell of tomato soup bothers me!
