Doctor Doctor

Taking simple comfort food and making it better is pretty much how I learned to cook. Take the classic grilled cheese and tomato soup combo, for instance.


I was working with what I had today, so there's nothing special about the sandwich (wheat bread, American cheese slices, and some margarine to grill it with), but the soup's been touched up considerably. First thing's first: Campbell's tomato soup is perfectly good in a pinch, but if you're making it with water and not milk, you may as well eat your own spew. Use 2/3 of a can of milk to get a thick, rich, creamy soup. Here's where it gets interesting: add in black pepper, crushed red pepper, basil, garlic salt and parmesan cheese to complement and accentuate the tomato flavor. Heat slowly and enjoy.

This whole meal costs about $2, takes under 10 minutes to prepare, and is utterly delicious. Seems like a no-brainer...
