INGREDIENTS

  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • 28 oz. crushed tomatoes
  • 3 c. chicken (or vegetable) stock
  • 1/4 c. heavy cream
  • Fresh basil, for serving
  • 8 slices white bread, crusts removed
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Make soup. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion cook until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, stock, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Bring to a boil and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in cream and garnish with fresh basil.
  2. While the soup is simmering, make the grilled cheese roll-ups. Using a rolling pin, roll bread into flat, 1/4-inch thick squares. Place a cheese slice on each slice of bread and roll up tightly.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, add the roll ups to the skillet, seam side-down. Cook, turning often, until all sides are golden and the cheese has melted, about 3 minutes. Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel and add more butter before adding more roll-ups.
  4. Ladle soup into bowls and serve with grilled cheese roll-ups.
