A soup and sandwich meal, served with chips

The soup and sandwich combination meal consists of a soup accompanied by a sandwich. It has been a popular meal in the United States since the 1920s. Some U.S. restaurant chains specialize in the meal, and it has been mass-produced as a prepared frozen meal.

 

The soup and sandwich combination meal is common in the United States. Depending on the intended size of the meal, the sandwich might be either half or a whole sandwich, and the soup may be served in either a cup or bowl. The combination of a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup is a common example in American cuisine, and has been described as a comfort food.

 

A grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup

The soup and sandwich combination became a popular lunch dish in the United States in the 1920s, and remains as a common dish at American luncheonettes and diners. It was also a common lunch dish in some earlier U.S. department stores that had dining rooms. In contemporary times, it is sometimes consumed as a light dinner. Some soup kitchens, outreach organizations and churches routinely provide the dish to the needy.

 

Some American restaurants specialize in soup and sandwich meals, such as the Panera Bread Company, Hale and Hearty, and Zoup! restaurant chains. In September 2016, the fast casual restaurant Panera Bread had a total of 2,024 stores at North American locations, some of which go by different company names. Panera plans to expand its product delivery availability, which began in early 2016, to include 35% to 40% of its store locations by the end of 2017. In October 2016, Zoup! has a total of 96 stores in the United States, with 93 franchise stores and three company-owned ones.

The soup and sandwich combination has been mass-produced in the United States and purveyed to consumers on a national level, the Campbell’s Souper Combo frozen soup and sandwich meal being one example. Initially, the product realized promising sales revenues, but consumer interest later tapered off, with the initial high sales attributed to consumer curiosity about the new product and “one-off” purchases per this initial interest. The Souper Combo was a short-lived product, and was eventually discontinued.

The Corner Bistro is a line of mass-produced frozen prepared soup and sandwich meals marketed under the Stouffer’s brand. The sandwiches are manufactured as stuffed melt sandwiches.

Today’s Menu: Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits w/ Grilled Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 77 degrees and sunny out today. I went to Meijer after I had my Tea. Just needed a few items and then stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Did a few things around the house and then got the cart out of the shed and enjoyed this beautiful day! For Dinner tonight it’s all Comfort Food! I prepared Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits w/ Grilled Cheese.

 

Potato Soup with a Grilled Cheese sounded pretty good for Dinner tonight. ! I’ve always loved Soup and the Campbell’s Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits is one of my  favorites! Another easy to prepare item; just empty the contents of the can into a sauce pan and heat. Heated it on medium low heat, stirring often. I love a thick and hearty Soup and this one is perfect. Campbell’s Chunky Baked Potato Soup with Cheddar and Bacon Bits is one of the best there is.

 

Then for my Grilled Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Deli Deluxe Sliced American Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Layered 2 slices of the Sharp Cheddar on top. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a skillet, heated it up on medium heat and lightly coated it with a 1/2 pat of Butter. When the Butter was melted I added my sandwich. Grilled it on both sides until it was golden brown and the Cheese melted. For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Noodle Soup

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I a bowl of All-Bran Wheat Flakes, used 2% White Milk. Had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea afterward. 68 degrees and cloudy out today. Got the cart, rake, and leaf blower out for some outside work. I washed off the deck, driveway and shed real good. I scrubbed the deck to remove the dirt built up during the Summer. When done I took the hoses off the spigots drained both hoses and stored them in the shed for the Winter. Then turned off the valves to both spigots for the year. Cleaned up around the yard then. For Dinner tonight I prepared some Chicken Noodle Soup.

 

 

Well the commercials got me for Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup! I’ve been seeing the commercials for it quite a bit on TV and it looked so good I purchased a can the other day at Meijer. Easy to prepare just heat it in a saucepan, and done!

 

 

 

 

It has an excellent Broth, perfectly seasoned. Nice chunks of Chicken and Carrots, both are very tasty! Plus it’s only 100 calories and 12 net carbs per serving. There’s 2 servings per can or plenty for 1 serving for one hungry guy, like me tonight. Served it with a side of Kroger Wheat Saltine Crackers. I’ll be buying more cans of the Chicken Noodle Soup soon! For a Snack later a Bottle of Diet Peach Snapple, love Snapple! Stay Safe and Take Care All!

Today’s Menu: Loaded Potato Hearty Soup

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 60 degrees and partly cloudy out there today. 68 degrees and partly cloudy out today. After my Tea I went to Kroger and then over to Meijer. Stopped and got the car washed and got gas on the way home. Back home it was raking leaves time again. So many leaves out there and we are not even in prime time leaf falling yet! For Dinner tonight I prepared Loaded Potato Hearty Soup.

 

I wanted something light for Dinner so Soup seemed perfect! I’m trying the Idahoan Loaded Potato Hearty Soup. It comes in a packet and easy to prepare. I’ll be preparing the Soup on the stovetop. Start by heating 4 cups of water to a boil in a 2 quart pot. Whisk in the contents of one pouch of soup all at once. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 5 min, stirring occasionally. Remove the pot from heat and let stand 5 min to cool slightly before serving.

 

Really a very good Potato Soup! I topped it off with Sargento Off the Block 4 State Cheddar Cheese. Plenty of Potatoes and the Soup had excellent Seasoning. I’ll be adding this to the Pantry! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Vegetable Barley Soup
This warming vegetable barley soup uses easy-to-find produce and frozen veggies, making prep simple and easy. It makes plenty to feed a hungry family, plus it freezes beautifully so leftovers can be enjoyed again and again……………………

Tomato-Basil Soup with Herbed Focaccia Croutons
Created by chef Fabio Viviani of Siena Tavern in Chicago, this vegetarian tomato-basil soup recipe takes full advantage of fresh tomatoes. Roma or plum tomatoes are fleshy, low in seeds and cheap–making them a good candidate for tomato soup. During peak season you may also see other suitable plum-shaped heirloom varieties at your farmers’ market, but you can also ask for any low-seed, fleshy varieties they may have. While this silky soup is the perfect partner for grilled cheese sandwiches, the homemade croutons add an herby-crunchy accent that should not be missed……………………………

Slow-Cooker Lentil, Carrot and Potato Soup
Puréeing some of the lentil-vegetable mixture, and then combining it with the remaining vegetables and lentils gives the soup a texture that satisfies those who love a creamy soup and those who prefer it chunky. Serve this slow-cooker lentil soup with crackers………………………….
