Recipe for Creamy Reuben Soup with Rye Toasts
If you like Rueben sandwiches, then you’ll love this Creamy Rueben Soup with Crispy Rye Toasts. Dinner will be ready in less than 30 minutes, since it utilizes the Basic Cream Soup Mix. If you don’t have the soup mix on your pantry shelf, it takes only a few minutes to make, and it is the base for dozens of different soups that can be made very quickly.
While you’re at the grocery store, pick up a loaf of cocktail rye bread or cocktail pumpernickel bread. It takes only a minute or two to brush the little bread slices with butter and pop them in the oven; the crusty slices are perfect with this soup.
