I had never really eaten tomato soup up until about 2 years ago. Never really had a desire to order it anywhere and for some reason I also thought it would be complicated to make (I’m all about simple, easy dishes). I remember the first time my husband and I went to eat at Boudin, he ordered a bowl of tomato soup with a sloppy grilled cheese sandwich. I took one bite together and my love affair with the combo so began. What I didn’t realize at the time was how completely simple making your own is. I don’t make soups too often, but this is one the whole family loves!
Do you have a panini press? If you don’t you MUST get one asap. 2 slices of bread with anything in between pressed for 2-3 minutes? DE-licious. Seriously, its ridiculous. We use ours all of the time and no matter what combo we use, what type of bread we have, it always turns out perfect. It really is like magic. My favorite is a French bread roll though…. add some cheese and/or some fresh sliced chicken breast and you have yourself one of the best combos to ever hit your mouth! So crunchy on the outside, soft and melty and warm on the inside. Dipped in the soup? Perfection.
