We wanted to end off National Soup Month with a post that eats like a meal… warm, delicious and pure comfort for your daily reading. So we enlisted the help of Hamilton’s souped up team at The Burnt Tongue to ladle up and share their favourite comfort food dishes-turned-soups.

The challenge? Turn these five hearty dishes into soup:

1. Stuffed baked potato
2. Cabbage rolls
3. Buffalo chicken wings
4. Macaroni and cheese
5. Choucroute garni (sausages and sauerkraut)

Challenge, accepted!

Why is it that most people think of soup as the mere gateway to a meal? At our restaurant, soup is the main feature and we have five hearty recipes to prove it. You can make these soups from scratch or use the leftovers of the meal that inspired the soup itself.

These five soups are guaranteed to eat like a meal.


Loaded Baked Potato Soup 


One of our all-time best-sellers, this soup is definitely going to fill
you up. If it’s meat and potato you’re after, this bowl is for you!

Cabbage Roll Soup 


When it comes to making cabbage rolls, you’re probably already making
too many in a single batch anyway! This soup is perfect for squeezing an
extra meal out of just two leftover cabbage rolls.


Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup


This soup has Americana written all over it. Our favourite pub fare from
just across the Peace Bridge is now a hearty bowl of soup, blue cheese
included. Made with Franks Red Hot sauce, this spicy soup pairs
perfectly with fresh-cut celery and carrots on the side.


Macaroni and Cheese Soup


This classic comfort food has been tried and tested in almost every way
imaginable, and mac & cheese-style soup is our kick at the can.
Classic mac & cheese and soup: two of the world’s most beloved
comfort foods join forces in this tasty new spin.


Sausage and Sauerkraut Soup


Was it wurst night at your house last night? Don’t know what to do with
the last of that sausage and sauerkraut? Maybe you should use it to make
one of the tastiest soups ever, complete with mustard and beer!
