I know, I know, any one can make tomato soup and grilled cheese, but this was AWESOME! I used two jars of my homemade canned spaghetti sauce dated 12/25/15 that I had stored in my pantry.
-4-5 cups of spaghetti sauce, marinara sauce, or your favorite sauce. Mine is seasoned with Rosemary, Italian Seasoning, Salt, Pepper.
-1/2 cup sour cream
-Splash of whole milk or heavy cream (your preference)
Bring to a simmer and you have very tasty and creamy tomato soup.
Cast Iron Grilled Cheese
I dedicate a small cast iron skillet specifically for grilled cheeses. Its big enough for one sandwich if that tells you the size. I do this because the cast iron flavors itself with whatever you cook in it. Mine has a good layer of butter!
-2 pats of butter
-Bread of your choice
-2 slices of Havarti cheese
Add 1 pat of butter to your skillet. Once melted, lay down your bread and add two slices of your favorite cheese. I used Havarti. Before you flip your sandwich keep another pat of butter on standby to crisp the other side.
That’s it! Super crispy buttery grilled cheese and homemade tomato soup. It’s delish!

OMgosh!!! That sounds really good! Very awesome idea, and I believe I have some of the stuff on hand. I adore tomato soup. I put some up last year, following someone’s recipe. AWFUL!! So sweet I wanted to cry! That is a lot of work to realize it tastes wretched!
It was!!!! My babydoll’s “go to” lunch. I always can pretty plain tomato sauce and on average about 16-18 jars at a time. I can then make anything under the sun! Thus he loves my quick tomato soup. I don’t like a lot of recipes because I feel they are overly complicated, to seasoned, or not seasoned enough. Let me know what you think! I made this the other day but added a ton of fresh basil and O.M.G. 🙂
