“This recipe has a twin! French Onion Grilled Cheese- it should be a law that both of these are served together. This is far and away the best tomato soup you will have. I love tomato soup and I've experimented with many recipes, but this one simply takes the cake. Simple ingredients make a great, complex tasting, yet still 100% comforting soup. It is wonderful!! I must say to serve it with the French Onion Grilled Cheese sandwich. Two doses of comfort food that are a perfect pair! I also want to say that I normally shy away from cooking sherry- it really makes this dish so go ahead and use it!”
