We’ve been wanting to recreate the old standby of grilled cheese and tomato soup since enjoying them in a couple of local restaurants (The Rumor Mill in Ellicott City, and Donna’s in Columbia–both excellent and subjects of future posts) a few months ago.  So, Spike set to work.

The sandwiches were made from delicious sourdough bread from Wegmans.  Oh Wegmans, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways.  Inside was a combo of Gruyere and sharp cheddar, with a little bacon for good measure.  The soup was also homemade, and was quite good! Definitely beats Campbell’s from a can.  Spike threw in a little habenero hot sauce for just the right amount of heat in the background.  Definitely a recipe worth repeating!
