Also known as....Almost as good as 4B's Tomato Soup!

Just for the record...I'm one of those people that does NOT like tomato soup. Not a fan...or I wasn't until I made my way to the great state of Montana for college & met 4B's Tomato Soup! 4B's were a chain of restaurants up in the Big Sky State. They have the most creamy & delicious tomato soup I've ever tasted ever! Oh my goodness, it is dreamy.

Later I the gypsy trail would take to Havre, Montana for work and the amazing Ms Kaye Young of Norman's Ranchwear shared her Almost 4B's Tomato Soup Recipe with me. I make it every winter & love it! Today I'm going to pass the favor along & share the delicious Tomato Soup Recipe with you.

I paired mine with toasted cheesy bread. (Just add CHEESE to Uncle Jim's Famous Beer Batter Bread recipe & grill up on the George Foreman Grill) Also, I usually double the recipe. Takes the same amount of time & you can share with friends.

  1. Hey Mindy, How do you keep the milk/cream from curddling? Mine always does. I heat the milk,

  2. Hi Kari,
    I just get the milk mixture hot but don't boil it. Kaye actually gave me a tip about that too. If you do curdle the milk...microwave to heat it back up & it seems to help.
