Years ago, a coworker brought in a slow cooker full of Tomato Soup. The soup was delicious and perfect for the cool temperature that we were having outside. The best part was that my friend had left the recipe written down on a recipe card in front of the pot of soup.

From what I can remember her note said that it was a recipe that her aunt made every year at Christmas so the family had always called it Christmas Soup.

I wrote the recipe down, and tucked it away until recently. I’ve been on a soup kick and was really craving Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese. I pulled the recipe out and started reading through it and decided that although the original was delicious, it was a little heavy (1 stick of butter and 2 cups of sour cream) and had no extra seasonings other than salt and pepper to taste.

I used the recipe as a guide for my version of Christmas Soup. This creamy Tomato Soup is sure to be a hit especially when served alongside my Spinach and Artichoke Dip Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.

  • 2 cans of Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Soup
  • 2 cans of milk
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1 can of stewed or diced tomatoes (don’t drain)
  • 2 Tbsp. of tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp. of minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. of dried parsley
  • 1 tsp. of dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. of dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. of black pepper


Add all of the ingredients to a large non stick soup pot and bring up to a simmer.  Note – use the soup cans to measure the milk.  I use whole milk, but use whatever you usually buy.

Stir the soup often to incorporate everything together and to prevent the soup from sticking to the bottom of the pan.  I cook the soup for about 15 to 20 minutes on low to warm everything through.  If the soup starts to boil turn the heat down.  Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.

Serve with grilled cheese or crackers if desired.
