Food trends come and go, but comfort food has staying power. Sitting down to a warm meal of savory soup and a filling sandwich is one of the most satisfying winter meals. Mixing and matching soups can give you endless mouthwatering possibilities.

Here are some tips for matching the perfect pair.

1. Classic combination
Everyone knows nothing goes better with a warm, toasty grilled cheese sandwich than a hot bowl of tomato soup. The melted cheese complements the zesty zip of the tomatoes.

2. Complement the flavors
Match up ingredients that have the same flavor profile. They could have the same ethnic twist or flavors that naturally complement each other.

3. Create a balance
Match hearty soups with lighter sandwiches or vice versa. Creating the perfect balance leaves you feeling perfectly satisfied...not too hungry or too full.

4. Separate the components
If your sandwich is heavy on the meat, vegetables or grains, try going light on those ingredients in the soup or leave them out altogether.
