Comfort food

We are finally experiencing some fall weather here at chez foodie. And, for me, cooler weather means comfort food. Add to that the fact that more than half of the family is recovering from a vicious stomach bug and you have the perfect reason to make one of my favorite comfort foods. Grilled cheese and tomato soup.

As the mother of three boys who are only getting hungrier and hungrier by the day I envision a future where my trusty skillet with it's two sandwich capacity will be painfully inadequate. So you can imagine my excitement when cook's country published a method for making grilled cheese en mass.

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place two rimmed baking sheets in the oven to heat up.
2. Assemble the sandwiches in the desired manner.
3. Remove one sheet from the oven and place the sandwiches in a single layer. Carefully place the second sheet on top of the sandwiches (rim up) and place on the middle rack of the oven. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes or until the sandwiches are golden brown.

You can make 8 sandwiches this way! That should be enough to keep my boys at bay for a few minutes!
