"Nothing's more comforting than grilled cheese and tomato soup. This is a gussied-up version, with grilled Brie cheese sandwiches and spiced tomato bisque with basil. As the soup soaks into the sandwich, break into pieces with your spoon and ladle up with the soup." — amanda1432

freshly ground black pepper

This was good, fast and easy. I used two 14oz cans of tomato sauce and diced tomatoes because I did not have puree on hand and the texture was great.
I'm not a fan of rye bread, but I thought it was pretty good paired with the Brie. The soup, however, wasn't nice at all. I'd try this again but make my own tomato soup from scratch.
I used the variation given by the last review, 2 14oz cans tomato sauce and one can diced tomatoes instead of the puree. It Was EXCELLENT!!
Fantastic! Quick, easy, and delicious! I too used the sauce/diced variation and it came out fabulously!
This was absolutely delicious! It is very similar to the tomato basil soup you get at La Madeleine which I love. I used the 1 can of diced and 2 of sauce and when it was almost ready I used a hand blender to mash the diced tomatoes up a bit more. It turned out thick and hearty and the flavor was amazing!
I made the soup but not the sandwich. The soup is great. I cut down on the amount of cream cheese and left out the milk entirely. Very good.
A wonderful recipe! I made this for my co-op of 30 people, and it went over just wonderfully. It is pretty spicy, so if that's a concern I would suggest cutting the crushed red pepper a tiny bit, but I really suggest putting it in there -- it makes a world of difference! I think the next time I will do a quick run through with an emulsion blender to break up a couple of the chunks of tomato, but again, not too much because it really gives it a robust feel. Thank you for the great recipe!
SO easy and SO good! I did not follow the recipe exactly as far as the canned tomatoes are concerned. Did not make a difference...
