Grilled Cheese with Spicy Beef & Cabbage Soup (Slow Cooker Style)
This evening we had "soup and sandwiches" for dinner; two of my favorites, grilled cheese and my Slow Cooker Spicy Beef & Cabbage Soup. When I came home at lunch time today, I put the soup ingredients into my slow cooker and got that started (I forgot to do it in the morning before I left). When I got home this evening, I turned the crock pot temperature to high and let it cook on high for the last couple of hours -- it turned out great. I also made a quick batch of my Sesame Seed Sandwich Buns to use to make grilled cheese sandwiches with. I was excited to try the new flavor of sliced cheese I picked up this weekend -- Kraft's Smoky Chipotle White Cheddar Cheese w/ Chipotle Peppers. I thought it would be great in a grilled cheese sandwich and that it would go nicely with my soup since it's also spiced with ground chipotle chile pepper. The sandwich bun recipe makes 6 buns. I topped 3 of them with sesame seeds and left the other 3 plain. I used the plain buns to make the grilled cheese sandwiches. I simply cut them in half and turned the flat sliced inner side outward to use as the side that got grilled. I placed the cheese in the middle and brushed the outside with melted Kerrygold butter and grilled it in a nonstick pan until browned. It was my first ever "round grilled cheese sandwich" -- and you know what? It tastes EXACTLY the same as a square grilled cheese sandwich! LOL It went great along with the soup. I've got plenty of soup leftover to make several lunches for me this week. I snapped a few photos below of my delicious "soup and sandwich" dinner. I made one slight change to tonight's soup. Instead of adding the 14.5-ounce can of diced fire roasted tomatoes to it, I added a 28-ounce can of crushed tomatoes instead so it would be a little more "tomatoey." Here's the link to the recipe for the soup: Spicy Beef & Cabbage Soup. Here is the link to the recipe for my sandwich buns: Sesame Seed Sandwich Buns. Enjoy!

First link for the soup takes you to the buns lol....
That's pure delicious comfort food! Looks perfect for a cold rainy day tomorrow. After a couple of lovely days in the 70's, we're headed into another cool spell. But ... I saw daffodils today. Yay!
I found your site on Pinterest when I was looking for a low carb sweetened condensed milk recipe. All of your recipes look so delicious. So far all I have made were your crackers, and they are fabulous, but I plan on making most everything I've seen on your site. I love to cook but I'm not very creative on my own. Thanks for all the work you do!
Thanks for the heads up! I've fixed that and the link now directs you to the soup like it was supposed to. I need to SLOW DOWN a little! Thanks for letting me know. ;-)
It was really good. We had leftover soup for our dinner this evening and I made myself a sandwich to go with it...why? Because I could -- there were buns in the house! LOL Who eats a turkey sandwich with beef soup after all? I do! P.S. -- We actually have a few roses open today! My grass isn't even green yet. ;-)
Hi Anonymous! Thanks so much -- I'm glad you stumbled upon my Pinterest page. It does make is somewhat easier (I think) to get a quick overview of what is on my blog without having to scroll through page after page. Glad you enjoyed the crackers and hope you find some other recipes you like as well. Welcome! :-)
