Yes. You can have a grilled cheese sandwich without tomato soup. But I never eat tomato soup unless I’m having a grilled cheese sandwich (and as soon as the sandwich is gone the rest of the soup goes in the trash).
Any kind of cheese can be used that will melt with some consistency or combined with another cheese that will.
Personally, I would never willingly eat American cheese but I’m a snob that way.
Is to me. Since I don’t like tomato soup in any other context no reason to get fancy. And the smoother/creamier the better since it is really just there to get sucked into sandwich bread.
I just do whatever the can says.
Anything big enough for the sandwich to be dipped into.
No spoon needed because tomato soup on its own is gross. Only that which is attached to the sandwich gets consumed.
Whole relatively uncooked tomatoes are the work of the devil so should never be anywhere near something that will be eaten.
I don’t eat pork so no bacon.
But if I do add something to a grilled cheese sandwich (like sliced turkey breast) then I do still consider it a grilled cheese if it is thoroughly melted and served closed face. At some point if you add enough the other ingredient would dominate and no longer be a grilled cheese sandwich.
No, once I’ve added other stuff to the sandwich I no longer have any interest in tomato soup with it. Regardless of how many extraneous e’s the soup has.
I’m still waiting for a ruling from the Global Sandwich Eating Governing Body so until then I just pull it apart or dip the corner of a whole sandwich in. If still hot, all cutting in half does is give the cheese time to get somewhere other than in the sandwich.
Just about any kind of bread can work and I’ve found pretty much any of them can produce a good sandwich.
What am I, your spellcheck?
Oh the hell with it. Anyone got the number for Pizza Pit?
