This is the best creamy tomato soup ever.  So delicious!!

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 (46-oz.) bottle tomato juice
  • 2 (14-oz.) cans diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons chicken base
  • 3 – 6 tablespoons sugar (I used 3)
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream

Melt butter in a large pot or Dutch oven.  Saute diced onions in butter until translucent.  Add tomato juice, diced tomatoes, chicken base, sugar, pinch of salt and pepper, if desired.  Bring to a near boil, then turn off heat.  Add in cream and stir.  Top with grilled cheese croutons.  Serve immediately and just see if you’re not in heaven!

Serves 6.

Grilled Cheese Croutons

  • 4 slices of white bread
  • 4 slices of cheese (your choice) (I used Co-Jack)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Heat a panini grill or fry pan.  Butter one side each of the 4 slices of bread.  Make sandwich with 2 slices of cheese on unbuttered side.  Grill until nicely browned.  Cut into 1-inch cubes.

Makes 2 sandwiches.
