Want to raise things up a notch and hit all the hunger senses? Add in a grilled cheese with bacon and tomato and you have now reached the extreme yum factor.  My husband went crazy over this soup and he is not a soup lover by any means; but this Tempting Tomato Soup with the grilled sandwich was a hit. I got a big hug in the end and his ever so pleasant and warm remarks of, while deep breathing and patting his belly saying…’ahhh, that’s why I married you!’

  1. I was strolling through your soups and saw this one. PUT the brakes on! Wow. I had to come read how to make it. Will do so soon! This looks very tempting indeed. I love the bacon. And the toasted cheese sandwich is the perfect partner for a warm comforting bowl of this tomato soup! My hubby will wish he had married you:)

  3. hello Tina.
    i recently made a soup, my first because i am not a soup fan, but my mother loved it. so i want to try more.
    i just have two questions about your lovely recipe,
    what is the herb you used?
    and can i use anything else other than bacon?
    i am from india and bacon is not the most popular meal option here in my state.
    thanks 🙂

    • Hi Insanely Roy! You can omit the bacon, it’s more of a garnish for the top that adds just a little extra flavor. You may not be able to find the herb seasoning where you are, so I broke down what was in it so you can use them separately if you have the available ingredients. You can use dried spinach, dried onion, dill and garlic (fresh or powder). If any of these are not available, change the seasoning to your liking. It still come out fantastic. Oh,and let me know if you make it, and how you changed it. I’m always looking for different ways of fixing something. 🙂

    • Thank you Richard,
      It really is and well worth the time to make it. My husband will not buy can tomato soup any longer, so I make this up by the quart jars.
