Cozy Slow-Cooker Soup & Sandwich Pairings
Fend off freezing temps with a serving of slow-cooked soup and a quick-prep sandwich.
Soup: Slow-Cooker Butternut Squash Soup
Sandwich: Toasted Turkey and Bacon Sandwiches
Why it works: This velvety squash soup teams up beautifully with a cheesy-ranch BLT on the side. Prepared ranch dressing and turkey breast from the deli make this sandwich come together fast.
Soup: Slow-Cooker Beef and Bean Soup
Sandwich: Quick Grilled Quesadilla
Why it works: Supplement the Southwestern flavors of this hearty soup with a versatile quesadilla made with Old El Paso tortillas, cheese and bacon bits. Feel free to mix up the quesadilla fillings, depending on your family’s preferences, and don’t forget to serve extra salsa on the side!
Soup: Slow-Cooker Cheesy Potato Soup
Sandwich: Ham and Cheese Foldover Sandwiches
Why it works: Keeping this soup chunky allows the delicious potato flavors to shine through. (It’s no wonder it’s a Betty fan favorite!) Serve it with a hearty ham and cheese wrap for a deliciously filling dinner.
Soup: Slow-Cooker French Onion Soup
Sandwich: Make-Ahead Roast Beef Sandwich
Why it works: French onion soup gets even more depth thanks to an extended cook-time in the crock. Enjoy it with a prep-ahead roast beef sandwich for a fuss-free, yet fancy-feeling supper.
Soup: Slow-Cooker Chicken-Corn Chowder
Sandwich: Club Sandwich Skewers
Why it works: The rich flavors of sherry, cream cheese and chiles elevate this chicken-corn chowder to soul-warming status. Offering a traditional club in skewer form on the side makes the stacked sandwich easier for little mouths to eat.
Soup: Slow-Cooker North Woods Wild Rice Soup
Sandwich: Hearty Ham and Pear Panini
Why it works: The holy trinity of celery, carrots and onions are supplemented by nutty wild rice and smoked turkey in this rib-stickin’ soup. Pair it with a crispy grilled focaccia sandwich, filled with melt-y mozzarella and juicy pear.
Soup: Slow-Cooker Vegetable Minestrone
Sandwich: Chicken Muffuletta
Why it works: This pairing combines two Italian classics: minestrone soup and a muffuletta sandwich. Piled high with texture and layers, this chicken sandwich is the star, and the veggie-packed, tomato-based minestrone is the perfect accompaniment.
Soup: Slow-Cooker Beef-Tortellini Soup
Sandwich: Roasted-Garlic Hummus and Goat Cheese Sandwiches
Why it works: In search of big flavors? Then this match is made for you. Big hunks of beef in the soup hold up nicely against the robust roasted garlic in the sandwich spread.
