Soup and grilled cheese! They go together like pb&j, bacon & eggs, and milk & cookies! There is nothing better than a warm bowl (or mug) of your favorite soup with a grilled cheese. My husband loves a good potato soup, but my boys and I LOVE tomato soup! I have the best memories from my mom making me Campbell’s tomato soup and grilled cheese when I was a kid and it’s a tradition I have kept going with my own! There is something nostalgic about making your kids a meal that was a favorite that your own mother made for you. But sometimes you just need to mix it up a little, or sometimes in my case, I run out of white bread (otherwise known as the ONLY bread, besides sourdough, that should ever even be considered when making a grilled cheese!) and come across a can of crescent rolls in your fridge and inspiration strikes.

Thankfully my gut idea paid off and these were delish! The best part is they are so quick and easy that my boys can make them themselves once I have prepped and assembled the ingredients for them. They have quickly become a family favorite, that I’ve already made them twice this week. We are currently experiencing an ice and snow storm, so comfort food is a must for any cold day. These bites are so versatile that you can mix and match your favorite cheese with the soup of your choice! Use some pepper jack with a spicy chicken quesadilla soup, or Colby with your corn chowder. But cheddar is the only way to go when it comes to tomato soup hands down! They would also make fantastic appetizers for the BIG GAME!
One can crescent rolls
Cheese sliced into long chunks
2 tbsp. melted butter
1/2tsp garlic salt
Unroll the crescent rolls and separate into 8 pieces
Using your fingers, smush the rolls with your fingers, flattening out the edges as much as you can
Mix the garlic salt into the melted butter, and brush on the crescent roll.
Lay out your cheese and roll the crescent roll up around the cheese.
Place on aluminum foil that has been sprayed with nonstick spray and brush the tops with the rest of the melted butter.
Repeat for each crescent roll.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 mins, or until the cheese is melted and the rolls are golden brown
Let the rolls sit several mins for the cheese to firm back up.
Enjoy! I know my little guy sure did!
