Little Lucy Tomato Bisque

Little Lucy Tomato Bisque

A quick lunch to warm you up on a cold Fall day! And we have plenty of cold days in Minnesota. Typically this recipe is best served with a grilled cheese sandwich on the side, but sometimes we just got to have the cheese--hold the bread. We created our own variation of this simple, yet delicious soup by topping it with a sliced disc of our beloved Little Lucy Brie.
