I love comfort food, especially on a cold winter day. One of my favorites is a good, hearty soup.
However, the only thing I don’t like about making soup is how long it can take. When I’m ready for comfort food, I want it 10 minutes ago.
But, that’s not the case with Idahoan® Steakhouse® Soups. Idahoan Steakhouse Soups give you the flavorful, slow-cooked taste of restaurant-quality soup at home, in just five minutes.
With 4 delicious varieties to choose from, Loaded Potato, Creamy Potato, Cheddar Broccoli and Cheddar Potato, it’s there when you want it, how you want it.
Now that’s what I call perfect comfort food on demand.
I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes, so these soups are a great choice for me and my family. All I have to do is add a simple side and I’ve got a complete meal.
Being the carbaholic that I am, I love eating bread with my soup. Plus, it’s pretty much a comfort food all on it’s own.
The other day, when I made Idahoan Steakhouse Soups Cheddar Broccoli Potato Soup, I also made a fabulous tomato cheese bruschetta to go with it.
Making Tomato Cheese Bruschetta
- All you need is a good loaf of French bread, 8-12 slices of baby Swiss and a sliced tomato. Yep, it’s that easy.
- First, you’ll want to be very careful when slicing your bread. Pressing too hard can cause the bread to get smashed, which is no good for bruschetta.
- Next, place your slices of bread flat on a baking sheet.
- Then, simply layer 2-3 slices of cheese on top of each slice of bread.
- Broil on high for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is nice and melted, even slightly brown.
- Once out of the oven, top each slice of bread with 2 slices of tomato. I topped mine with some green onion, to add a bit more flavor and color.
The best part? You can make the tomato cheese bruschetta while you’re making your soup.
Plus, Idahoan Steakhouse Soups use real, red Idaho® potatoes with flavorful seasonings and rich cheeses giving you a creamy taste in every spoonful.
And all you have to do is add water.
That’s right, you simply boil water, whisk in your soup, and let simmer for 5 minutes.
Once you let it stand for another 5 minutes, you’re ready to enjoy a cheesy, creamy, winter weather bowl of comfort.
