I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. Now that Christmas feasting is over, it’s time for New Year’s Eve party food. Who doesn’t love tomato soup and grilled cheese? Wow your party guests with this comfort food appetizer, tomato soup shooters with mini grilled cheese.
This appetizer can be prepared a few days in advance. I made the soup and kept it refrigerated for a couple of days and reheated when I was ready to serve and I think tastes better because the flavors develop.
The mini grilled cheese can be made in minutes. I used Jewish rye because I love the flavor of the rye with the sharp cheddar and soup. The best way to butter the bread for cooking them is melt the butter first, then you can brush the butter evenly on the bread.
I served the soup in a variety of different shaped shot and cordial glasses. This makes for a pretty presentation and the height differences give more dimension to your party table along with rosemary sun-dried tomato olives and a pear ginger champagne cocktail.
