Remember the good ol' days when Mom used to serve up melty grilled cheese with a cup of creamy tomato soup? We sure do, which is why we came up with this irresistible twist: Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Bake!

What You'll Need

  • 3 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1 (1-pound) French bread, cut into 1/2-inch slices (about 22 slices)
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can condensed tomato soup
  • 1/2 cup milk

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly spread butter on one side of bread slices and place on baking sheet, butter side down.
  2. Bake 5 to 7 minutes, turn over, and bake another 5 minutes, or until lightly toasted.
  3. In a 9- x 13-inch baking dish, arrange half the bread slices in a single layer, butter side down. Sprinkle bread with 1-1/2 cups cheese and top with remaining bread slices, butter side up.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine tomato soup and milk. Evenly pour over bread.
  5. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with remaining cheese, and continue baking 10 minutes, or until heated through.

melanannie....As is your comment.

For those who have made this...does it end up soggy?

the picture is the dish that was prepared on Tuesday 9-22, but the title and recipe are not????? It looked like a good dish and I was looking for the recipe.

Hi there! The picture on this page goes along with the recipe for Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Bake. You can see all of the ingredients listed above being used in the video (Click the link to watch video!). Enjoy!

This is good, and easy. Anyone tried adding bacon pieces with the cheese layer?

very good!

I have not been able to find a condensed tomato soup without high fructose corn syrup. We try not to use products that have that in them.

Why do you people that find it necessary to complain, even bother to post comments? You are very annoying!!!


Me too. High fructose corn syrup is so terrible. Mercury eats your brain. We are getting more and more careful about what we eat these days!

Have you thought about making your own tomato soup to use in this recipe. Then you control how much salt, sugar, etc is in it. Ctoney88 5567182 I don't believe JustOneVoice was complaining like you but stating a fact, and that was not as annoying as yours.

When I prepare grilled or baked cheese sandwiches I omit butter on the bread and lightly spread olive oil on the bread instead. It toasts up beautifully! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes. I've prepared many. :)

I have made this twice now. It is now a go to meal. The only thing that I do differently is I spray the bottom of the dish so that it is easier to get out and I reduce the oven to 350 degrees before I begin to bake it. The casserole comes out perfect. I also make extra soup on the side for those who want more for a dipping sauce.

My family really liked this. I added spinach and onion to the sandwich, my husband wants ham in them next time.

I made this over the weekend so simple and soooo good!

Looks delicious we plan to try it tomorrow night!!

Which way do you place the buttered side of the bread?

I bet it would be great with much less butter or even just using the dry toasted bread. The cheese has lots of buttery type fat already. I think I might even try it using low fat cheese and dry toast, perhaps with a bit of cooking spray on the pan first. I'll bet it will still taste "sooooo good".

I was thinking of doubling the amount of butter.

Place the butter side up when you bake them initially, then after baking 5 to 7 minutes, turn them over and bake another 5 minutes or until lightly toasted. When assembling the sandwiches, you can place the buttered side either way.
