Tomato Soup with Mini Grilled Cheese Sticks

These mini bites of grilled cheese and tomato soup are the perfect party or game day comfort food!

Ingredients

3
slices cheddar cheese
Mayonnaise, for spreading on baguette
16
slices whole-grain baguette, cut into 1/2-inch slices
Butter, for the skillet
2
(19 oz.) cans Progresso™ Heart Healthy Creamy Tomato Basil
8
(8 oz.) canning jars (lids removed) or ramekins
Chopped fresh basil, for topping
8
small (approximately 4-inch) bamboo skewers

Directions

  • 1 Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.
  • 2 Meanwhile, assemble sandwiches: Cut each cheese slice into 6 rectangles. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on one side of each baguette slice, then top half of baguette slices (mayonnaise-side down) with cheese. Top with another baguette slice (mayonnaise-side up) to form 8 mini sandwiches.
  • 3 Melt a small pat of butter in heated skillet, then add sandwiches to skillet (in batches, if needed). Cook on both sides until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 8 minutes total. Remove from heat.
  • 4 Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat soup until warm. Divide soup evenly among canning jars or ramekins. Top with chopped fresh basil.
  • 5 Cut each grilled cheese sandwich in half, then skewer 2 halves onto each skewer. Place skewers on top of jars of soup just before serving.

These mini bites of grilled cheese and tomato soup are the perfect party or game day comfort food!

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

These apps may be little, but they’re big in flavor and presentation.

What could be a better comfort food for game day than soup and grilled cheese? Tomato soup with mini grilled cheese sticks, that’s what!

Not only are they fun to look at (and easy to assemble), they taste delicious! Melty and crispy grilled cheese sandwiches to dunk into warm, basil-kissed tomato soup? Excuse me for a moment while I eat all of them before my guests arrive.

To start, it’s best to have all of the ingredients pre-chopped, pre-sliced, etc. I use sharp cheddar cheese and a whole grain baguette to make my mini sandwiches, but feel free to use your own favorite combo or jazz them up with added flavors—sliced deli ham or Italian seasoning, for example.

Here’s a neat little trick I learned in my grilled cheese adventures: To get that perfectly crispy, golden-brown crust on the sandwiches, spread a very thin layer of mayo on the outsides. That, plus a little pat of butter melted into the skillet or griddle, will give you perfect results.

Cook sandwiches on a buttered skillet or griddle (in batches, if needed) until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted. Set the sandwiches aside to cool slightly.

Meanwhile, heat your soup over the stovetop until warmed through. I love the creamy, slightly sweet texture and flavor of Progresso™ Creamy Tomato Soup with Basil, so I often pair it with my grilled cheese. Divide the soup evenly among small canning jars or ramekins—whatever small bowls you have around will work! Top each bowl of soup with small ribbons of chopped fresh basil.

Cut each grilled cheese sandwich in half and place two halves on each skewer. Top your mini bowls of soup with the skewers, and serve! Your guests are going to love these, I just know it. (Because I ate all of mine, that’s why. Ahem.)
