Need Your Killer Tomato Soup Recipe & Grilled Cheese Inspiration

ChristinaMason | Oct 19, 2009 11:52 AM

Hello Hounds! After reading through several threads, I was inspired by your tales of throwing a grilled cheese party where the host provides the bread and condiments/toppings and the guests bring the cheese. Brilliant! I can just imagine a big steaming pot of homemade tomato soup setting this over the the edge. Goodbye, Berlin cold-weather blues!

Here's where you come in:

1) Does anyone have a killer soup recipe? I am thinking something *not* laced with basil, as that might be straying too far from the Campbell's sense-memories. Also, it would preferably be based on canned tomatoes, as the fresh ones are pretty crap in Germany by now.

2) Here are some of my topping/bread ideas. What am I missing?

tomatoes
bacon
ham
pears
apples
sauteed mushrooms
arugula
spinach
pancetta/proscuitto
raisins
grapes
mustard
fig jam
cranberry/sour cherry jam

raisin bread
pumpkin seed bread
sesame seed bread
sourdough
plain white toast bread

Is beer the best beverage?
