Baked Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Top

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.
