Pro-Tip: Red Pepper Soup is like fucking delicious-er tomato soup, especially with crushed garlic. So damn good with a grilled cheese.

My mind interpreted the subject as "soup made from grilled cheese and tomatoes" as opposed to tomato soup and a discrete grilled cheese sandwich.

Pondering if that would work better as a soup or as a flavor of potato chip.

damn now I'm hungry too :(

#9 Posted by MikkaQ (10294 posts) -

Those are both good, but I don't really see a reason to have them together. If I had either one for lunch I'd be satisfied.

Now I know what I am going to have for lunch tomorrow.

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup is my go-to winter meal. Delicious.

Can never go wrong with tomato soup and grilled cheese.

#13 Posted by drac96 (671 posts) -

When I was in college I ate grilled cheese almost every single day and didn't get sick of it. Tomato soup was not offered very often though, which was a major bummer.

Man, now I need some grilled cheese.

#14 Posted by Andorski (5331 posts) -

Slightly Off Topic:

I have some wheat bread. Should I make grilled cheese with that or is that a travesty (because grilled cheese should only be made with white bread)?

#15 Edited by Demoskinos (14886 posts) -

@andorski: I'd totally eat a wheat bread grilled cheese. I say make it then report back with the results.

I'll need to buy some tomato soup first. Any recommendations (other than making it from scratch; I'm too lazy to do that)?

#17 Posted by Animasta (14698 posts) -

oh my god I don't have tomato soup in my kitchen

you got my hopes up for NOTHING

JERK

I will often dunk said grilled cheese sandwich into said bowl of soup. Fuck yeah.

This is one of the most lopsided polls I've seen here in a long time. At least you guys chose the only correct answer.

@rebel_scum: Take a can of Campbell soup to the can opener hit the button dump in a pot add water. BOOM. Tomato soup.

#24 Posted by triple07 (1196 posts) -

Grilled cheese is awesome but fuck tomatoe soup! That shit has tomoatoes in it! I would totally take pretty much anything else with the grilled cheese though. I've had grilled cheese and sushi before...what? Don't look at me like I'm crazy!

#25 Edited by BaconGames (3445 posts) -

I like grilled cheese a lot. I've had it with tomato soup. It was okay. I'll have it with a little bit if it's available.

That's it.

#26 Posted by TheUnsavedHero (1255 posts) -

Love me some Grilled Cheese with Tomato soup. Goldfish crackers are mandatory for my soup if I make it. Some heavenly stuff right there.

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup is the best cafeteria day. Probably the cheapest food day too.

#28 Posted by Demoskinos (14886 posts) -

@theunsavedhero: I can't believe I never thought of that before. Shit, now I need to try this ASAP.

How do you guys like your grilled cheese? Because in my head its kind of gross, but that's because I can only picture wonder bread and kraft singles.

#31 Posted by Demoskinos (14886 posts) -

So next question Is which I should have already asked but... buttered bread or no butter on your grilled cheese?

#32 Posted by Slag (4459 posts) -

@demoskinos: oh buttered definitely

deep fry the sucker for bonus points.

Butter on Pepperidge Farms and your deli's finest cheese makes an excellent grilled cheese.

#34 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11804 posts) -

This feels like a Hizang poll, not that I'm complaining. Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup is never not great.

Fuck that does sound good. I wonder how many people will actually eat a grilled cheese they wouldn't normally have because of this thread.

#36 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

Grilled cheese is great and all, but tomato soup is some hot fucking garbage.

Fuckin' A they do, man!

Oh dear lord no. You need some good bread and real cheese. I'm a fan of the classic style grilled cheese so for me it's some good po-ta-to bread (buttered on the outside for sure, inside if you're feeling luxurious) and just tillamook cheddar. Some people like sharp cheddar but I feel it melts poorly and it's got too much of a bite to it for grilled cheese. You can also experiment with various cheeses and breads to find your favorite. I've done a baguette with some good cheddar and that was certainly tasty. Another great option is to pry the sandwich apart right when you take it off the pan and add a decent layer of classic homemade mac and cheese. Not that kraft shit (shit is a strong word, I honestly love craft mac), has to be the real deal. Ads some texture and flavor and substance to the sandwich, still goes great with tomato/red pepper soup.

#38 Posted by Sanj (2404 posts) -

Never had it, so I can't comment on whether I'd like it. Sounds like something that could go either way with me.

#39 Posted by GS_Dan (1403 posts) -

So grilled cheese is cheese on toast, right?

If so, fuck yes. If it's just cheese melted on top of the soup, that's still a fuck yes.

That's the only acceptable way to eat such a dish. Steep that sandwich like a tea bag.

That sounds like an unlikely combination, and a potentially desirable one. I was unaware this was a thing.
