  • Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients

  • Four 1/2-inch-thick slices country white bread
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 ounces Gruyère cheese, grated

Directions

  • 1. Heat a panini grill or place a skillet over medium heat. Place the bread on a cutting board and lightly brush each with the melted butter, being sure to butter the corners. Turn the slices over and pile Gruyère on 2 of the slices. Place the remaining 2 slices of bread on top of the Gruyère, buttered sides up.
  • 2. Grill the sandwiches on the panini grill or in the pan for about 5 minutes total, flipping once if using a skillet, until nicely browned. Place on the cutting board, allow to rest for 1 minute, and cut into 1-inch cubes. Dunk into soup, being mindful that if you don’t care for soggy grilled cheese, you’re going to want to add just a couple croutons at a time to your bowlful of steaming tomato goodness.
