Grilled cheese is the perfect pair with tomato soup. But what cheese are you using? Be bold and try a blend of three!

Is there ever any doubt that the perfect sandwich to pair with tomato soup is grilled cheese? Surely there is not! Which is why when I made the Creamy Tomato Basil Bisque this sandwich was a necessity.

The only dilemma I ran in to, was deciding on which cheese to use. There are so many delicious options and combinations! Smoked gouda is a frequent pick.

The first time I posted this recipe I went with a three-cheese party including asiago, sharp white cheddar, and fontina. When I updated this post 9 years later I went with provolone, smoked gouda, and smoked sharp cheddar. I’ve also added cream cheese before (obviously not shredded) for the ultimate creamy factor!
