Fall is quickly approaching, and with the changing seasons comes changing menus! It’s almost time to say goodbye to fresh watermelon, outside barbecues, and pool parties and hello to warm, hearty fall soups, stuffed sandwiches, and flannel sweats to keep you warm in the cooler months. Here are just a few of the best fall soup and sandwich combos that you need in your life this upcoming season:
1. Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
It doesn’t get much more basic than this! People of all ages enjoy this classic combination all year round, but for some reason, it always seems tastiest in the fall! Grilled cheese and tomato soup have been around for ages – because it is THAT good!
Melt some of your favorite cheeses on thick slices of bread, make your favorite fall tomato soup recipe, sit down with a huge bowl and prepare to enjoy one of the best fall combos there is!
2. Basil, Pesto, and Mozzarella Sandwich With Chicken Noodle Soup
This pair is truly a match made in combo heaven! It is definitely unique, and it may seem like there is a possibility that the flavors may not necessarily mix well together, but trust me, this is a combination you will definitely want to try this fall! The sharp taste of the basil and pesto mix well with the classic chicken flavoring in the soup, and the melted mozzarella adds the creamy touch that every soup and sandwich combination needs!
3. Toasted Ham and Cheese Sandwich and Creamy Potato Soup
This is just about as hearty as any fall combo can get! Everyone loves a classic ham and cheese sandwich, but throw it in a panini press or toast it on your stovetop and it brings your basic sandwich to the next level. Pair your sandwich with a bowl full of creamy potato soup topped with chives and cheese for the perfect fall soup and sandwich combination!
4. Gouda Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Butternut Squash Soup
These may be the two of the most fall flavors ever, and trust me, they both work so well together! Melt some pieces of fresh gouda cheese between thick pieces of sourdough bread. Try buttering the bread or using smoked gouda for an even tastier treat! Pair your fresh gouda grilled cheese sandwich with a hearty bowl of butternut squash soup and enjoy the way the flavors work with one another for a true taste of fall!
5. Grilled Brie, Turkey, and Pear Sandwich With Vegetable Soup
I don’t think I have heard of a sandwich with flavors that encapsulate fall more than a grilled brie, turkey, and pear sandwich! Brie, turkey, and pear are three classic fall flavors that go extremely well together. This sandwich is both savory and sweet – combining both types of flavors to create the perfect taste. Pair this sandwich with some basic, hearty fall vegetable soup and you have the perfect fall meal to enjoy all season long!
6. Pan-Fried Monte Cristo Sandwich and Split Pea Soup
There is no comfort food better than an eggy, pan-fried monte cristo sandwich. With melted cheese oozing out of the sides of two slices of toasted brioche bread surrounding fresh pieces of ham, you are guaranteed to feel full and satisfied after munching on this classic sandwich in the fall. Pair it with a steaming bowl of split pea soup and you have the perfect fall combo.
