Carol's Tomato Soup
Tori Willis from Champaign, Illinois shared her Aunt Carol's recipe. Aunt Carol was who taught her the grilled-cheese crouton trick...sounds SO tasty, doesn't it?
4 tomatoes, peeled and diced
4 c. tomato juice
1/4 c. fresh basil
1 c. whipping cream
1/2 c. butter
salt and pepper to taste
In a stockpot over medium-low heat, simmer tomatoes and juice for 30 minutes. Purée tomato mixture and basil in a food processor; return to pot. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cook over low heat, stirring until butter is melted; do not boil. Garnish with Grilled Cheese Croutons. Serves 4.
Grilled Cheese Croutons:
1/4 c. butter, softened
1/4 t. dried thyme
6 slices bread
3 slices American cheese
Combine butter and thyme; spread over one side of each bread slice. Place 3 slices in a skillet, buttered-side down. Top each with a cheese slice and a bread slice, buttered-side up. Cook over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes per side, until toasted and golden. Cut into one-inch squares.
