Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches are
comforting on a cold winterís day. These sandwiches are made
with Cheddar cheese, which originated in England. Orange Cheddar
cheese is actually colored with a natural dye called annatto
made from the pulp surrounding triangular annatto seeds.
Caribbean Indians were once known to paint their faces with the
same coloring. My husband makes these under the broiler, but I
prefer to fry them in a frying pan. If you butter the slices
before toasting, they will have an even crispier texture.
Shredded mozzarella is also a delicious cheese for these
