My Favorite Tomato Soup Hacks

Tomato Soup with Fire Roasted Tomatoes

Growing up with a “kitchen-challenged” mom, ice storms meant Campbell’s tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches…

…and it still does!

Nowadays I like to do a few things to bring my soup up to the next level:

2 cans Tomato Soup
1 “can” 1/2 & 1/2
1 can “fire roasted” Diced Tomatoes
1/2 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded fine (or mozzarella pearls for a caprese thing)
1/4 cup fresh basil, chiffonade

Over medium heat, slowly whisk milk into he condensed soup. Stir in the tomatoes and basil.

Bring all to a simmer, stir in cheese, and stir until melted.

American and Smoked Gruyère Grilled Cheese with Tomato n Dill Rye breadServe with a great grilled cheese sandwich (I like American and Smoked Gruyere with Tomato on Dill Rye bread).

What’s your favorite “Icy Weather” dinner, and does it hold a special memory?
