Quick & Easy Creamy Tomato Soup
The cold is really hitting us here in Cincinnati. The temperatures have dropped and the cold is here to stay for a bit. During the cold months, our family likes to have soup and sandwiches for dinner quite often.
Soups are the ultimate comfort food. Before I started doing so much cooking at home, we would purchase tons of the different canned soups to keep on hand in our pantry. Now that I like to cook often, I make homemade soups. They are so much better than the store bought versions.
There happens to be nothing better during the cold months than tomato soup and grilled cheese. It always warms me up. Yesterday evening, I needed a quick dinner. So I made creamy tomato soup with these super simple and tasty grilled cheese croutons.
The kids love it when I make these little croutons. I love to make them because I do not need make sandwiches in small batches on the stove top. So super simple.
The tomato soup is made right on the stove and has very few ingredients. Perfect for throwing together so quickly. The soup is not overly seasoned. If you prefer more salt… add more in. I like to toss fresh basil on top too for a little bit of additional flavor.
28 oz can Crushed Tomatoes
32 oz Chicken Broth
1/4 Onion, diced
1/2 tsp Garlic
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
3/4 cup Milk
6 slices Bread (I used Texas Toast)
6 slices American Cheese
In a large saucepan combine all soup ingredients except milk.
Bring to a boil over medium high heat.
Lower heat to medium low and add milk.

Use an immersion blender or transfer to blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
Lightly toast bread in a toaster.

Place on baking sheet.
Cut each cheese slice into 9 squares and top each toast square.
Broil until lightly brown.
