Ambre requested the ultimate sore throat sickness recovery comfort food: grilled cheese and tomato soup. I produced for her Cooks Illustrated Creamless Creamy Tomato Soup. Torn up pieces of white bread is the secret ingredient that adds creaminess without subtracting from the tomato flavor. As for the grilled cheese, I stuck with tradition. Kraft American Cheese and softened butter spread on both sides. Cooking it on medium-low allowed it to get evenly crispy and brown without burning, and letting the cheese get to room temperature helped speed up the melting. Simple, soothing and tasty. She loved it.
