Amazing things happen when a creamy and velvety tomato soup meets some grilled cheesy bread in the same bowl

This post is written in collaboration with Tuxton Home. All opinions are mine alone.

If you are looking for an easy dinner idea that is comforting and scrumptious, easy and cheesy all in the same pretty bowl, you’ve come to the right place. Today I present you my latest creation. Take a look! And if you are wondering … it is as good as it looks 🙂

We all know that tomato soup is one of the most comforting food you can find in a bowl. And when you serve it next to a hot-from-the-grill cheese sandwich, things are bound to get delicious. 

But wait, I’m taking this soup/sandwich duo up a notch with this silky and dense tomato soup topped with grilled bread cubes and a hip full of grated Gruyere cheese. All baked in the same bowl to melty perfection. And sorry, no dunking needed. 

I know some of you will ask about the bowls I served this soup on. Aren’t these the cutest?! These are the Duratux Onion Soup Crock  (8 oz) by Tuxton Home, on top of their Reno Wide Rim Salad Plate. Both crocks and plates are really great, so pretty and elegant. Made with high quality ceramic, they are designed for heavy duty use, and can go from freezer to oven to table. Just what I need!

Thank you Tuxton for the amazing plates!
