My Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

Vail Bee


Seriously one of my favorite things to make AND eat! It's good for any time of year - picnic in the summer or next to a fire in the winter. Hope you enjoy it.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Tomato soup and grilled cheese is a classic flavor combo that Vail has managed to take over the top. Don't skimp on all four types of cheese. They are a must to complete this dynamic duo and make for a gooey grilled cheese. The tomato soup is creamy and robust. We can't imagine a better way to warm up after being outside on a cold day.
