Makes 4-6 Servings
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
3 (10 oz.) cans tomato soup
1/3 lb cheese, cubed
16 slices of toast, or english muffin halves, toasted
Melt butter slowly in skillet. Blend in flour to form a roux. Mix until all the lumps are gone. Add soup, just as it comes in the can. Stir to combine. When thoroughly heated, add cheese. Stir gently until melted. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve over toasted bread or english muffin halves.
Forget about all the other recipes out there on the web that you can easily google. This one is the REAL, original recipe from the Girl Scout handbook in the 60's and dates back to WWII times when they rationed food. This is the tastiest recipe for blushing bunny out there--it is soo quick and easy, and what kid doesn't like tomato soup with cheese on it? And to put it on top of toast, well that's even better! It is dirt cheap to make, and if you MUST have meat with your meal, just serve it with some grilled chicken strips or something. But you are getting protein in there with all that cheese--which, by the way, we ALWAYS add more cheese than that, at least a whole pound of it! We like it super cheesy.
