Grilled Cheese Cut Outs
- 8 slices bread (or more)
- 4 T butter (or more)
- 8 slices cheese (or more)
- cooking spray (optional, depends on what kind of pan you have)
Heat a pan on medium. Once heated, add oil, onion & garlic. Cook for 3-5 mins. Then pour pan contents into Vitamix or blender. Add the rest of the soup ingredients (except for milk) in Vitamix/blender. Process on high speed for 4-5 minutes. Add milk and process an additional minute. Note: If using a Vitamix, soup should heat up as it is processed. Alternatively, ingredients can be blended, transferred to the stove, brought to a boil and reduced to a simmer for 4-5 minutes.
Pre-heat a skillet over medium heat (non-stick is preferable). Spray the pan if necessary. Generously butter the outside of two slices of bread. We used about 1 T of butter per sandwich. Place one slice of bread with its buttered-side down onto the skillet. Add 2 slices of cheese and place the second slice of bread on top, buttered-side-up.
Grill the sandwich for 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned, and then flip over. Once cheese is melted and both sides are browned, remove from skillet. Wait a minute for it to cool. Then, use a cookie cutter of choice to cut shapes into your grilled cheese.
Serve grilled cheese cutouts with tomato soup. We also microwaved some frozen veggies on the side for extra nutrients.
We recommend all children's meals be served with milk.
