Not your mom's tomato soup

When I was a kid, few things got me as excited as when my mom would make us tomato soup with grilled cheese. I would slurp down that hot-like-lava goodness, burnt tongue be damned! And that ooey-gooey grilled cheese was only better dipped in the soup.

As an adult, I still love this comfort food classic as much as ever. Here's my spin on it, which just makes it a little more amazing, but no more difficult than opening a can and adding water!

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Ready in: 10 min
Yields: about 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cans Campbell's Condensed Tomato Soup
  • 32 oz 33% Less Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 1.5 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a 5 quart soup pot, except cheese. Bring to low boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 5 minutes.

      Thanks, Dee! I 'test kitchened' a stove-top mac and cheese recipe today that will be the next one going up soon :) Maybe I'll do an interesting grilled cheese after that one. Tomato soup definitely needs grilled cheese with it!

      I miss my mom's tomato soup. Your recipe reminded me of how good it can be with a grilled cheese (what about this recipe next?).
