Onboard Holland America Line

Lunch for a Rainy Day

Grilled cheese and tomato soup aren’t just for rainy days...or kids, for that matter. We added innovative twists to these classic recipes to make them sophisticated enough for your adult palate. We skipped the cream in our creamy tomato soup but ended up with a soup that was thick, rich, and full of fresh tomato flavor. And we took a cue from Swiss fondue to add intense cheese flavor without losing the gooey melting factor that makes grilled cheese worth making.

Grown-Up Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Cheddar and Shallot

Our grown-up grilled cheese sandwiches start with flavorful aged cheddar to which we add a small amount of wine and Brie. 


Creamless Creamy Tomato Soup

A surprise ingredient—a slice of white bread torn into pieces—helped give our tomato soup recipe body without added cream.
