Vampire Blood Soup with Monster Grilled Cheese Sandwiches for #SundaySupper

Hi friends! We’re just a few days from Halloween and I’m excited to share my Vampire Blood Soup and Monster Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with you. I’ve been wanting to do soup in vials since a friend had them at a party a few years ago. I think they’re just perfect for Halloween!

Monster Grilled Cheese and Vampire Blood Soup

This smoky tomato soup goes together in less than 30 minutes, gets served in vials along with small, monster head, grilled cheese sandwiches. They are quick and easy for eating while donning costumes or dancing the night away with your favorite Zombie!

A Halloween twist on the classic Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. Use cookie cutters and decorative glass vials to create an easy grab and go dinner before trick-or-treating or to serve as easy finger foods at a party!

  • For the Soup
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 Large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme
  • 3/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 3 lbs. Very ripe tomatoes, crushed (OR 1 28-ounce can tomatoes)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh black pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked salt
  • For the Sandwiches
  • 8 slices sandwich bread
  • 10 slices of your favorite cheese
  • soft butter
  • Monster shaped cookie cutter

In a heavy stockpot or Dutch oven, heat the oil and butter for the soup. Add the onions and cook over medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until the onions are translucent. Add the flour and mix until the onions are coated. Slowly add the broth, a little at a time, stirring constantly. Add the remaining ingredients (minus the smoked salt), put a cover on the pot and let simmer 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings. Use an immersion or stand blender, puree the soup. Stir in the smoked salt and serve in glass vials alongside the monster grilled cheese sandwiches.

Using a monster shaped cookie cutter, cut bread and 8 of the cheese slices into shapes. Assemble the sandwiches with two slices of shaped cheese in-between two slices of bread. Carefully butter the outside of the bread slices. Cook on a heated griddle or large skillet until golden brown, flip the sandwiches and toast on the other side. Use the remaining two slices of cheese to make hair (I used a ravioli cutter) and eyes, or mouth. I used raisins and pumpkin seeds for the noses, but feel free to use more cheese too! Let the hair and eyes melt a little on one side of the bread. Serve immediately.
