When it comes to cozy, it’s hard to beat a soup and sandwich combo. Whether you’re planning a dinner with your SO, or you’re cooking for one, you’ll find the five recipes on this list a perfect soup and sandwich match for your palate. 

1. Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

No soup and sandwich list would be complete without this classic combination. It’s a comfort food staple you can prepare in under 10 minutes, a harmony of salty, savory flavors that will warm you up like few other dishes can.

For our recipe, we’ve selected a simple but delicious fried mozzarella grilled cheese that serves as an ideal pairing for your soup. It puts the fresh mozzarella center stage where it can shine alongside the rich tomato flavor.

2. French Onion Soup With Steak and Portobello Sandwiches

Of all the soups on this list, french onion is probably the one you’d be most likely to find on a fancy restaurant menu. While it’s good enough to stand on its own, a hearty steak and mushroom sandwich is the perfect accompaniment.

Topped with balsamic vinegar and a homemade horseradish sauce, this might be a soup and sandwich pairing that requires a few extra napkins. Don’t let that scare you, though — the flavors packed into this dish are worth the effort. Just make sure you have toothpicks to hold the sandwiches together.

3. Lobster Rolls and Corn Chowder

Nothing beats a buttery lobster roll. Add to that classic dish some creamy and savory corn chowder, and you’ve got a Maine-style feast you can make right in your own kitchen.

The richness of the lobster and butter are all you need to make this a standout dish. There’s no sense overcomplicating it, but for a fittingly decadent soup combo, try out this corn chowder with bacon and potatoes

4. Butternut Squash Soup and Turkey Club

Turkey reigns supreme for homemade sandwiches, and it deserves as spot among the upper echelons of soup and sandwich royalty. A quality turkey sandwich makes a delicious complement to some heartwarming butternut squash soup.

This recipe uses tangy gouda cheese, avocado and toasted whole wheat bread to create the perfect match to your squash soup.

5. Matzo Ball Soup and Toasted Reubens

Here’s a soup and sandwich combo that delivers a classic flavor along with the comfort and heartiness of matzo. Salty roast beef, crisp Swiss cheese and the right combination of condiments make the Reuben a classic all by itself, but one that pairs well with a bowl of matzo soup.

As with all these recipes, toasty, crunchy bread is an important component. What Reuben would be complete without two buttery slices of crisp toasted rye?

Mix and Match Your Soup and Sandwich

These five classic combinations range from old-timey goodness to Instagram-worthy food fun. You can take pleasure riffing on each one using different toppings, condiments, breads and cheeses.

Maybe that’s what makes this combo so comforting — it’s low-stress for something that tastes so delicious.
