11 Best Soup and Sandwich Combinations

One of the simplest and most satisfying weeknight dinners has to be the classic soup and sandwich combo. Not only is it satisfying, but it’s easy to plan for and make.

Plus, more often than not, the soup can be made ahead of time which means all it takes to get dinner on the table is slapping together a sandy and reheat the soup. What a win!

Gruyère & Apple Toasts with Thyme and Honey

A silky-smooth butternut squash bisque pairs perfectly with an open-faced cheesy sandwich. The toast recipe calls for ham and gruyère but deli turkey and smoked gouda also works wonders. If you’re vegetarian, or cooking for someone who is, simply leave off the deli meat. The sandwich will be just as delicious!
