Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons

Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons

A meal in a matter of minutes, this tastes like your grandmother’s tomato soup with just two ingredients. We've added a fun twist on the classic grilled cheese and tomato soup combo with the croutons, allowing you to turn an everyday favorite into a fun filled appetizer.

Serves 4

Soup Ingredients:

  • 1 jar Classic Vodka Sauce
  • 1 ½ cups stock (chicken or vegetable)
  • ¼ cup heavy cream (optional but advised)

Method:
Pour the contents of the jar of vodka sauce into a saucepan. Add most of the stock, keeping a little back to pour into the jar to make sure you get every last drop of yummy vodka flavor. Simmer on a low heat until piping hot, about 3-5 minutes. Add cream at the last minute.

Grilled Cheese:

  • 4 slices of bread, we used sourdough
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese

Method:
Butter 2 slices of bread and place butter side down on a heated nonstick pan. Place 2 slices of cheese on each slice of bread. Top each with the remaining bread and spread butter on the top. After 2-3 minutes, when the underside is nicely browned, flip both and leave for a further 2 minutes until cheese is melted.  Transfer to a board and cut into 1” squares, removing any hard crusts.

Divide the soup between 4 bowls and top with grilled cheese croutons.
