Just saying the words “grilled cheese and tomato soup” makes me feel nostalgic. So warm, so comforting, these mini soup shooters bring that uplifting feeling right to the heart of any party. Serve as a party appetizer for several guests, or as a party-of-one treat on a cold day. Now, consider yourself warned, these are not your average grilled cheese sandwiches! I add bacon and dip them in milk before grilling for that special smoky ‘n sweet, French toast style crunch. And adding cream cheese to this soup makes it creamy, rich and perfectly thick in minutes. How about a round of applause for that old school feeling!
