Directions

In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 7 minutes.

Using the blender, puree half the soup; combine with the other half. Stir in 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, then stir in the cream. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm over low heat.

Preheat the broiler. In a medium bowl, using a fork, combine 2 cups Kraft 2% shredded cheddar cheese, canadian bacon, and mayo. Season with pepper. Spread the mixture on both halves of the bread and broil until bubbly and golden. Cut into 8 pieces and serve with the soup. Makes 8 servings.
