Nothing fancy — just a classic, family-friendly combination of Classic Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup using our sweet, addictive Prairie Sunset® cheese.


  • For Soup:
  • 1 cup canned tomato sauce
  • 1 cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce of choice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • For Sandwich:
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • 4 slices (about 3/4 ounce each) Roth Prairie Sunset® cheese
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Fresh basil, sliced scallions and/or pesto, for serving (optional)


  1. Combine tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, Worcestershire, and hot sauce in a saucepan, then stir to blend. Bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and season, to taste.
  2. Heat heavy skillet over medium heat. Butter one side of bread slices. Place 2 slices, butter-side-down, in a hot skillet. Arrange cheese and avocado slices over bread. Close sandwiches, placing top butter-side up.
  3. Grill until bottom slice is toasted and cheese begins to melt, about 2 minutes. Flip sandwiches. Grill until cheese is fully melted and bread is toasted.
  4. Ladle soup into bowls. Serve with scallions, fresh basil and/or pesto, if desired. Plate the sandwich, and dip to your heart’s content!
