a little comfort food from my childhood, often consumed with the infamous tomato soup! seems it's been forever since I had one. guess I'm often lazy about lunch, being by myself I just grab...whatever. well...hub is home, and suddenly there he was ...wanting fed. (funny how he shows up for food) LOL behold! that grilled cheese sandwich came to mind. YUM...double YUM!!! all gooey goodness..hot..crispy...oozing cheesey wonder. I think I have a renewed addiction. :) now..if only I had my mama's tomato soup!

I love mine made with Swiss cheese, or good sharp Cheddar.
American cheese will do, in a pinch.

I love them, too. With a mix of cheeses on them. American (NOT singles!!) and Greuyer are my favorite mix.

Grilled cheese is a fav here along with tomato soup! Another fav from our childhoods - fried bolonga sandwiches! YUM!

We had grilled cheese (the evil gooeyness of Velveeta and the sharp goodness of sourdough bread) and tomato soup for dinner last night. First time in oh, maybe 10 years and then suddenly this thread appears. I think someone is trying to tell me something ;)

Did someone mention grilled cheese sandwiches? Yum. My favorite sandwich.

I like mine with bacon and sliced tomatoes - cook the bacon first then add the bacon and tomatoes to the cheese sandwich before grilling it in the bacon fat in the frying pan.

I also like grilled Velveeta or cheddar sandwiches done open faced under the broiler with a little bit of sliced onion on them - so nice all bubbley and browned. I call them 'growlies'. Delicious.

Grilled cheese....yum. My daughter would eat them night and day! Agreed, they are most perfect with tomato soup. Am I the only one who likes tomato rice soup?

I like mine on sourdough rye best of all. BTW- the George Foreman grill does a pretty good job of it.

Roasted red pepper 'n' tomato soup and grilled cheese is always on the menu when we go camping. The other families we camp with are always envious :).

I like a bunch of different kinds of grilled cheese sandwiches, but when making just a "plain" one, I use whole wheat bread, Miracle Whip on the inside, two slices of American cheese, and butter on the outside.

I've had many people say they were really good and wondered what the "secret" was, lol. I don't really know unless it's the Miracle Whip, I found most people don't use any kind of dressing on the inside, just the cheese, bread and butter. My sister's favorite is this old standby, but with a couple of thin slices of smoked ham in the middle.

Okay, now y'all have made me hungry for one! lol And some tomato basil florentine soup. I've already had dinner, maybe I'll make it tomorrow. :)
