It's cold out and you probably feel like hiding under your blankets and watching movies all day, so I'll skip the small talk and get straight down to business.
Namely, this creamy and comforting tomato soup! In my book, there is no such thing as"too many soup recipes," especially when winter is concerned. Growing up in the Northeast meant plenty of snow and days with temperatures below freezing, so my mom always had a soup recipe up her sleeve, ready to keep us warm and cozy.
Her go-to was usually some form of chicken noodle, but as I got older I came to love creamy tomato soups with a side of grilled cheese. There's nothing better than dunking a crispy, crunchy, cheesy sandwich into a bowl of hot delicious soup...Until now.
Forget dunking your grilled cheese; now you can make deliciously fun grilled cheese croutons! They are super simple and take this tomato soup from amazing to UH-MAZE-ING. Oh, and did I mention this soup comes together in your slow cooker? It's the perfect recipe for a snow day; simply put it on in the morning when you wake up and the soup will be ready when you and your kids (or friends) come in from having a snowball fight or building an igloo.
The base of this hearty tomato soup is a combination of caramelized onions and tomatoes, which cook right in your slow cooker for less mess (and less stress!). After pureeing, the soup gets a wonderful creamy kick from PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese. It's an effortless way to make soup taste richer and creamier.
You and your family will be warm and toasty with this Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese Croutons! Keep warm, my friends!
