Grilled Cheese Sandwich Soup

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan heat butter over medium heat until melted. Add onion, carrot, and garlic; cook and stir 4 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add broth and potato. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 20 to 25 minutes or until potato is tender. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  2. Using a handheld immersion blender, blend broth mixture until smooth*. Stir in half-and-half and mustard. Remove 1/2 cup soup to a small bowl; stir in cream cheese until smooth. Whisk cream cheese mixture back into soup. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until heated through. Reduce heat to low. Gradually add 3 cups of the shredded cheese, whisking until cheese is melted.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Brush both sides of bread slices with oil; place on a baking sheet lined with foil. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat 2 to 3 minutes or until toasted, turning once. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup shredded cheese. If necessary, broil until cheese is melted.
  4. Top each serving with 2 cheese-topped bread slices.
