  • Return puree to pot and add milk, vegetable broth, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer over low heat while preparing sandwiches.

  • Butter one side of each bread slice. On unbuttered side of 1 slice, distribute about 1/4 cup cheese. Top with 2 slices Canadian bacon and another 1/4 cup cheese. Top with another slice of bread, unbuttered side down. Repeat step 3 to make 4 sandwiches.

  • Place a large grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Place sandwiches in pan and cook until golden, about 5 minutes per side. Cover sandwiches with foil to keep warm.

  • Just before serving, stir basil into soup and spoon into bowls. Top with sour cream, if desired. Slice each sandwich diagonally and serve alongside soup.
