Saks Fifth Avenue Tomato Bisque

Recipe by BecR

Rich tomato soup! I sometimes add a few tablespoons of sherry to this rich creamy soup. Lovely served with pate sandwiches Asparagus Pate Sandwich for a special luncheon. Or, serve in shot glasses as a tasty first course! From Saks Fifth Avenue Cafe.

This is simmering on my stovetop right now & it smells amazing. I will put it in the blender when its finished and return it to the stove to reheat. With some garlic bread with parm.....I can't wait.
