Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Bake

Today’s recipe is Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Bake. This recipe was very easy to make. A combination of two dishes that go well together…just ask TomChee, right? They took a great idea and ran with it. This recipe came from Taste of Home Magazine, one of my favorite places to get yummy, easy recipes.

I used Kroger cheeses and bread from their bakery. I added a salad to complete the meal!
