ChezCindy: Simple & Delicious Grilled Cheese

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

Always a classic pairing, toasty grilled cheese sandwich and comforting tomato soup.  Nothing fancy, just the best ingredients to elevate this to a gourmet meal.  I used a blend of cheeses for flavor and melting; and fresh sandwich bread from the local bakery.  I served my favorite homemade tomato soup, with the recipe from a restaurant in Yountville, California, Bistro Jeanty. 
Simple and satisfying.

Process for Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Use your favorite blend of cheese.  I used cheddar, fontina and Swiss.  Grate the cheese and combine.  Generously spread real butter on one side of sliced sandwich bread.  Pile the shredded cheese onto one slice of bread; top with the other slice.  Place on the griddle, butter side down, over medium high heat.  Allow the first side to brown.  Flip over to toast on side two.  Remove the sandwich to cutting board to cool for several minutes.  Serve with your favorite soup.
