Appetizer Essentials:Grilled Cheese & Soup Dippers

Andy Anderson !


What is more heartening than a nice yummy grilled-cheese sandwich, and then dipping that sandwich into some homemade tomato soup. That, to me, is the quintessential comfort food.

Why not miniaturize the lot, and make them an appetizer?

These are insanely easy to make, and the presentation is brilliant.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Appetizer Essentials:Grilled Cheese & Soup Dippers


  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. Warm up your tomato soup, and reserve.
  4. Brush the melted butter on one side of each of the two slices of bread.
  5. Add one slice of bread, butter-side down, to a skillet over medium heat.
  6. Mix the two cheeses together, and spread over the top of the bread slice.
  7. Place the second slice of bread, butter-side up, on the cheese.
  8. Chef’s Note: Cook until the bottom slice begins to brown, and the cheese gets melty, about 2 – 3 minutes.
  9. Flip, and cook for an additional 2 – 3 minutes.
  10. Chef’s Tip: For me, cooking the ultimate grilled cheese is not about two flips, I might flip it several times, until I achieve the exact level of browning that I want.
  11. Remove from the pan, and carefully cut into strips.
  12. Chef’s Tip: The strips need to be thin enough to dip into the tomato soup.
  13. If you are in the market for a good tomato soup, here are two suggestions:
    Cold Weather Comfort Food: Tomato Soup
    Autumn Essentials: Creamy Tomato Soup
  15. Pour the soup into a tall shot glass.
  16. Lay two of the grilled-cheese strips on the side and serve. Enjoy.
  17. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
