Creamy Tomato Soup with Rosemary Fontina Grilled Cheese Croutons for a cozy soup and grilled cheese experience. Comfort food defined. 

Course Main Course
Cuisine American
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 2 slices sourdough bread (3/4" thick)
  • 1/8 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 4-6 slices Fontina cheese (or another melting cheese like gruyere, Monterey jack, etc.)
  • 1 tbsp salted butter, room temperature

Instructions

  1. Butter the outside of the bread slices. I'd suggest a full coverage of butter, smeared evenly over the bread. This butter is what will make your bread golden.

  2. Heat a non-stick pan to med-low heat. Place one slice of bread, buttered side down into the pan. Top with cheese, sprinkle with rosemary, and top with remaining slice of bread, buttered side out.

  3. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until bread is golden brown and cheese has started to melt. Flip and cook for 3-5 more minutes, until the second side is also golden brown.

  4. Transfer sandwich to a cutting board and cut into 1" croutons.

  5. Place croutons on top of a bowl of warmed soup.
