Winter Soup & Sandwich Pairings

It’s the time of year when soup makes a regular appearance on our dinner table. The weather outside is chilly, and warming up with a comforting bowl of soup always sounds like the perfect way to end the day. I love soup and consider it to be worthy of a main dish, but my husband always wants something a little more substantial, so pairing it with sandwiches makes the meal complete. Here are a few of our favorite winter soup and sandwich pairings.

The Best Soup & Sandwich Combinations

1. Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup

This is probably the most classic soup and sandwich combination. I enjoyed it as a child and still love it today! Try this Creamy Tomato Basil Soup with this Grown-Up Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Tip: Give your grilled cheese more of a protein punch, and add some sliced ham, turkey or roast beef. They’ll all pair well with cheddar cheese.

2. Roast Beef Sandwiches & Potato Soup

Potato soup is one of my absolute favorites, and I think it’s hearty enough to eat alone, but an Open-Faced Cheesy Roast Beef Sandwich would definitely pair nicely with it. Tip: Beefy French Onion Soup is another delicious option to serve with roast beef sandwiches.

3. Portobello Panini & Chicken Noodle Soup

When it comes to Homestyle Chicken Noodle Soup, you can’t go wrong with this Grilled Portobello Panini as a perfect match. Tip: Want a side of chicken with your chicken noodle soup? Just toss a few slices of chicken breast into the Portobello mushroom sandwich, and make it a super protein-packed meal.

4. Meatball Subs & Minestrone Soup

I think this Minestrone Soup needs a good Italian partner, don’t you? Whip up an Italian sub, or if you want something heartier, opt for a classic meatball sub. Soups and sandwiches were meant to be together, so what are you waiting for? Start planning dinner now!
