Mayonnaise, for spreading on baguette
slices whole-grain baguette, cut into 1/2-inch slices
cans (19 oz each) Progresso™ Heart Healthy Soup Creamy Tomato Basil
(8 oz each) canning jars (lids removed) or ramekins
Chopped fresh basil, for topping
small (approximately 4-inch) bamboo skewers
Prepare your ingredients and heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.
Meanwhile, assemble sandwiches: Cut each cheese slice into 6 rectangles. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise on one side of each baguette slice, then top half of baguette slices (mayonnaise-side down) with cheese. Top with another baguette slice (mayonnaise-side up) to form 8 mini sandwiches.
Melt a small pat of butter in heated skillet, then add sandwiches to skillet (in batches, if needed). Cook on both sides until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 8 minutes total. Remove from heat.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat soup until warm. Divide soup evenly among canning jars or ramekins. Top with chopped fresh basil.
Cut each grilled cheese sandwich in half, then skewer 2 halves onto each skewer. Place skewers on top of jars of soup just before serving.
- Jazz up your grilled cheese! Add a small slice of deli ham or Italian seasonings to the sandwiches.
- Drizzle balsamic vinegar over soup before topping with fresh basil for extra flavor.
