Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Bake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. + standing
We really liked this recipe. It was a bit soggy so I crisped it up in a frying pan after baking. I know an extra step but it was worth it. Loved the flavors . It was more like an Italian calzone with tomato sauce flavor wise instead of grilled cheese and tomato soup. Will make again
I too thought it was soggy and it was very much like eating overnight french toast. My husband, who will eat anything, didn't even like it.
This is very yummy....the whole family gobbled it up as a nice little treat before Thanksgiving tomorrow. I baked mine a little bit longer for an extra crisp texture. Thank you for sharing this take on grilled cheese
To me, this recipe was very tasty! I used sliced Asiago cheese for sandwiches and the shredded Mozzarella for the top as recipe suggested. I used a 10x14" greased baking dish. I also used 4-oz. cream cheese instead of 3-oz.
We enjoyed it but it was more work than just making grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. We can still dip our sandwiches into the soup as we eat it. I like the 1/2 " slices of Italian bread and the addition of the cream cheese to the grilled cheese.
i guess i should have read the comments before trying this one. Agree it is somewhat soggy even though i expected it to be more soupy... also sliced my bread thick. flavor was good but i think we will stick with our soup and sandwiches separate
I expected more liquid from something that called itself grilled cheese and tomato soup bake.As it was, the tomato came out as kind of a paste. Enjoyable but not what we expected.
Very soggy, the flavors were good, but there's a lot of room for improvement. I'd be willing to experiment to make it better, but as is, it was disappointing.
My family did not like this at all. We will stick with separate soup and sandwiches.
Learned how to make this at the cooking school and I am obsessed with it.One thing I change significantly...which does not help with the calories (but makes it taste a little better ;) ) is use half and half instead of milk, and only 1 egg. I've also toasted the bread in the oven slightly before assembling the sandwiches (which I cut in half before putting in the baking dish) and this has resulted in a slightly less soggy casserole. It disappears at our house!
