Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Tomato Bisque- yes pleas. One of my favorite wintertime comfort soups. Creamy, delicious and so good to warm you up during the cold season. Also my kids love it too so its win-win for me when I struggle to find new ways to give them something fun and nutritious.
I also like to serve it room temperature. Its fun to have it in a small shot glasses when you are having a party with your friends. This little tomato shutters a fun and really awesome way to present this comfort food and elevate it to a new elegant way. Its a easy and delicious and so so good.
