Wow! That's a stretch to call that grilled cheese though, eh? Sounds good though. I forgot about the tomato soup though. We always have that w/ grilled cheese.

I don't try to jazz up a grilled cheese. It's comfort food.

White bread, butter, sliced cheese - usually American or muenster.

Heat a non-stick pan, butter the pan and add the assembled sandwich. When the first side is brown, remove the sandwich, butter the pan and flip the sandwich over into the pan to do the second side. Use a wide spatula to move the sandwich and to press it down while it's cooking.

Add-ons include sliced tomato or ham.

IMO if you put ham on it, the ham trumps cheese and it becomes a ham and cheese sammich.

I call it a grilled ham and cheese. The ham gets top billing. For whatever reason, I call the tomato version, grilled cheese and tomato, with the cheese retaining top billing.

I guess I value meat over cheese and cheese over tomato.

Cubes of avocado are also very good with the sour cream in your tomato soup and/or (slices of avocado) in the grilled cheese!!!!
