Think of a grilled cheese sandwich; hot, melty, crisp grilled bread.... and I bet you thought of tomato soup on the side didn't you?
Cream of tomato soup has to be one of those comfort foods that I love best... and if you add grilled cheese to it ..well it doesn't get better than that.
Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches remind me of blustery days in the early spring. I am not sure why, they just do.
I am pretty sure you can eat it all year, at least I hope so. If not the Soup Nazi probably has my picture on his wall.
There are admittedly a lot of ways to make a great tomato soup. I love tomato basil soup, for example. Yet, cream of tomato soup is my favorite. Simple flavors that melt together to create pure tomato heaven.
Rich and creamy, this homemade tomato soup can be in your bowl in less than 10 minutes.
Make sure the cream or milk is warm before you add it to the tomato to keep it from curdling.
A great homemade tomato soup recipe that you can make in minutes....

I was craving a grilled cheese with tomato soup and found this EASY delicious recipe! I was lucky to have everything for it and it literally took me 10 mins to whip up! Keeper recipe! So good. Only thing I didn’t add clove because I didn’t have any but I didn’t need it.
Yipee for this recipe. My favorite soup and to have your recipe is exciting. Thank you so much.
Thanks for the recipe! I tried it yesterday and the whole family LOVED it 🙂
It was really simple to make and tasted so good 🙂
Thinking of putting some croutons on top next time! 😀
Sooo GOOOOOOD!! Next time I may cut back on the milk. I never added all the water called for in the canned stuff...so, I like it a little more tomato'y.
yeah, I have always liked it really creamy
Do you have the specific amounts for the tomato paste and tomato sauce? The cans I have for paste are 6 oz, and for sauce 15 oz.
