Tomato Soup and Salami & Muenster Cheese Sandwiches

This is another blast from the past recipe from my youth.  I had to QUICK make it before we turn to March on the calendar and I start putting away the soup recipes and getting out other things in preparation for the warm weather to come!

  This Homemade Tomato Soup recipe has always made me giggle a bit, since it calls for a can of Campbell’s Tomato soup, but hey, who am I to complain when it tastes SOO good!

Tomato Soup

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Onion, Chopped Finely
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ⅛ teaspoons Pepper
  • A Dash Of Each: Garlic, Basil, Oregano And Thyme
  • 14 ounces, fluid Campbell’s Tomato Soup
  • 2 cups V 8 Juice
  • 2 cups Milk

Saute onion in butter. Blend in flour, salt and pepper. Stir in 1 can tomato soup and 2 cups V-8 juice. Season to taste with garlic, basil, oregano and thyme. Bring to a boil, stirring continually for 1 minute. Add 2 cups of milk and simmer until serving time, being careful not to scorch milk.
Paxton in particular found this Deeee-licious! He had 3 bowls. 

Dale had Ramen Noodles with his sandwich, cause he is a big baby and won’t eat most things that involve warm tomatoes.  🙂

  We usually serve this Soup with Grilled cheese, but when my friend Stephanie Johnson told me about her latest sandwich creation on Facebook, I KNEW I needed to make it ASAP.  She totally had me at the Muenster Cheese!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  Sweet Dale stopped by the store and got the things for me on his way home, so I wouldn’t have to wait until a WHOLE nother week to pass before it was grocery shopping day again.  Awww!  🙂  {Ramen? What Ramen? You mean someone made Ramen Noodles for supper?!?!?!?!}

Salami & Melty Muenster Cheese Sandwiches

Salami & Muenster sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 12 slices Beef Salami
  • 4 slices Sandwich Sized Muenster Cheese (or More Per Taste)
  • 8 pieces Whole Wheat Bread
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter

Heat skillet while you butter all the bread. Place first bread butter side down in skillet and quickly add 3 pieces of salami and a nice fat layer of Muenster cheese covering to the edge of the bread. Top with other piece of bread, and grill until golden brown, just like you do your grilled cheese. Flip to side two, turn the heat down a bit and add a lid to your skillet to steam melt the cheese a bit, watching your bottom bread closely.
Pull when it turns golden brown and has a crisp to it, but the cheese is nice and melty!!! Eat it while its hot so the cheese stays gooey!

  This sandwich is FABULOUS, and tastes great with Nana’s Tomato Soup.  A HUGE thank you to my Foodie Friend, Steph, for telling me about this!

Now go, quick and make this!  It’s February 29th, we gotta get our Soup fix before Spring shows up!

  1. Sounds yummy. Tell Dale he and Grandpa need to get together on anything tomato. Grandpa dislikes anything tomato lately. His dad (Greatgrandpa Beckler) would not touch anything tomato. I grew up with lots of tomato soup.

  2. Just had to tell you that soup picture is AMAZING. Holy cow girlfriend! You’re amazing. Also, the 18-month photos of Pax are completely darling. Well done, friend!
