Nothing fancy here but sometimes grilled cheese and tomato soup really hits the spot. I was going to be getting home late and the wife said she and the kids were having grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner and she would save back some soup for me and I could make my sandwich fresh when I got home. Now dont get me wrong ...white bread and american cheese slices are the classic grilled cheese i grew up on but I wanted to do something else. So a block of my smoked cheese came out of the fridge and shredded. I wanted to share how I did mine. It was really tasty.

First thing is to make the cheese filling. Pretty simple. 8oz block of smoked cheese shredded and 1/4 cup Dukes mayo. You can use whatever cheese you like. I used Colby jack this time. I like to use sharp cheader and add a small jar of pimento sometimes too. Into the stand mixer with the paddle and give it a whirl. My wifes stand mixer is another "pretty" piece of kitchen equipment that makes me feel manly when using it lol!

Then an Italian loaf sliced for the bread

I did like my grilled cheese and tomato soup. That looks great! The smoked cheese really set them off. I like doing that as well.

That looks great. For some reason, in the 60+ years I've been around I never thought to make grilled cheese from shredded cheese. Thanks for sharing. You learn something new everyday.

Thanks! It works real good. Especially when you mix the mayo into it. Makes it nice and creamy

Looks great! That’s a common meal for us when we don’t know what to make for dinner or don't want to put much effort in.

I hoard my smoked Cooper sharp for this particular reason!

Yum!

Well, I'm going to have to smoke some cheese. I've been planning it for awhile, but now I have a good reason.

Yes sir a great idea to upscale a grilled cheese. An old stand by around here too. Do you dip the sammie in the soup?
