Did you know January is National Soup Month? We’re always sharing our favorite, hearty, feel-good soups on Goodtaste.tv. So, what better sidekick to your soup than an ooey-gooey grilled sandwich? Dripping with everything from Havarti to Swiss, and with creative, flavorful (and sometimes healthy) additions like bacon, caramelized onions, and kale, we’ve rounded up 5 epic sandwiches for a serious soup slam dunk.
Resolving to eat more veggies in the new year? This recipe from Bon Appétit lets you do just that, without having to sacrifice any of the gooey deliciousness of a classic grilled Reuben. The secret is in the garlic-wilted kale, a hefty dose of sauerkraut, and a spicy yogurt sauce.
Love a little sweet with your salty? Get ready to dive into this melty Swiss sammie from Lemon Tree Dwelling. Sliced jalapeño and a smear of blackberry jam bring some fun, unexpected flavors to this bacon-and-Swiss melt. Dip it in a broth-based soup like minestrone or French onion for an ultra-comforting take on a classic wintertime pairing.
If there’s anything we love more than a classic grilled cheese sandwich, it’s this pimento grilled cheese from our very own test kitchen. Oh-so gooey and delicious with that classic pimento-cheese tang, it takes your grilled cheese game up a notch, and then some. Dunk it in a bowl of tomato soup and you may never go back to the classic version again.
Caramelized onion, homemade rosemary butter, and not one, but THREE different cheeses make this sandwich from The Chunky Chef one deliciously melty grilled cheese. Pair it with a puréed vegetable soup like butternut squash and a few apple wedges on the side. Now that’s a pretty superb lunch.
Pesto adds an easy, instant update to any grilled sandwich. In this version from Two Peas and Their Pod, we love the creative combination of creamy Havarti cheese and jarred artichokes. Try it alongside an Italian wedding soup (or any soup with cannellini beans) and with a glass of Chardonnay, of course!
