Let's get this straight: Just because we're nearing the end of winter's blustery cold days doesn't mean we need to ditch all of our favorite seasonal comforts quite yet. In fact, if you ask me, there are some cold-weather favorites that can be adapted to be just as great year-round, with the unparalleled duo of grilled cheese and soup being my personal fave.
In case you're new to whipping up this savory sandwich on your own, I'll let you in on the tricks of the trade. Always be sure to butter one side of both of your bread slices, then add them butter-side down on a skillet over medium heat. Cooking your sandwich open-faced lets you ensure both slices are cooking evenly, plus it give you a pretty solid visual on how the inside of the sandwich is coming along. Once the bread is in the skillet, carefully add your cheese and other toppings, waiting to close the sandwich until you see the cheese starting to melt.
Continue cooking the closed sandwich in the skillet until both slices of bread are a golden brown, then enjoy them with one of Pacific Foods' clean and simple soups that are guaranteed to bring your meal to celebrity chef status.
