Tomato Soup with Cheese and Bacon Toasties

If end-of-season tomatoes are on sale, make a double batch of soup (omitting the cream) and freeze, up to 3 months. Stir in the cream after thawing and reheating the soup.

Cook's Notes

To create a velvety texture without using a lot of cream, puree the soup until smooth in a blender.

    The sandwiches were good and the soup was fine but it didn't seem any better than Campbell's.

    I didn't make the sandwich, but I made the soup and it was delicious! Instead of using cream I used skim milk, Thickened it with a little bit of corn syrup, added a pinch of cumin and basil... delicious! I recommend it!

    I've made this recipe at least a dozen times. I use Roma tomatoes, 2 cloves of garlic, and sometimes fresh herbs, if I have them. Although the sandwich looks good, I usually just give the kids grilled cheese or something quick. I can't imagine having canned tomato soup after having this great soup.

    I just made this soup, and it is amazing! I added a little extra garlic and a little cumin. My 6 yr old and 2 yr old both give it 2 thumbs up!

    I made this soup using a 28 can diced tomatoes as winter tomatoes are tasteless and it turned out thick and creamy. It was delicious. I made mysandwiches with munster and pepperjack cheese as it is Lent and I can't have meat today and they were great especially dipped in soup. This is a quick, simple and fantastic meal.

    Would not recommend this recipe. Followed this recipe EXACTLY as written. Checked and double checked it to ensure I followed the instructions. It was way too thin, and not very flavorful at all. I will not be making this again.
