Creamy Tomato Soup

A thick, creamy, and super flavorful tomato soup that is so easy to whip up, you will never miss your go-to canned soup. 

Put that canned tomato soup aside and make this grown up version. Creamy Tomato Soup is thick, creamy, and comes together in under 30 minutes.

This soup was an absolute hit with the family. I'm not going to lie, ever since I was a little girl I have loved tomato soup out of a can and grilled cheese sandwiches. You really can't have one without the other in my opinion.

I would buy the large family size cans and keep on hand for a quick dinner on a busy night. My kids love it. I wasn't sure how the family would react to this homemade version since we all love the canned variety so much.

My husband kept telling me how much he enjoyed it. He tends to tell me when you likes something but to tell me over and over again I knew this was a winner.

We eat some form of soup pretty regularly during the cold months. In fact, at the time of writing this, I just made another BIG pot of my Moma's Vegetable Soup to eat on for a couple of days. Whenever there is snow or blustery cold temps in the forecast, I start thinking about what kind of soup I'm going to make.

Of course, we serve this soup with a grilled cheese sandwich. I took it a step further and made them into croutons. Grilled cheese croutons y'all! Oh my word, pair that with Parmesan cheese and this grown up version has become a menu staple.
