Head to the Whole Foods Cheesemonger, Stat!

As the San Mateo evenings begin to take on that fall chill, it’s the perfect time of year to cozy up with a classic comfort dish, grilled cheese and soup.  Luckily, with Whole Foods Market just a short stroll from Bay Meadows there are some tasty pour-and-heat soup options available to bring home. And while we all love the traditional cheddar melted between pan-fried bread as a complement to our soup, it’s nice to take this classic to a whole new level with a variety of delicious sandwich/soup combos.

Courtesy of our SF Peninsula neighbors at Whole Foods, here are some tasty meals sure to up your grilled cheese game.
