Still, even though it’s still feeling a bit like summer outside, I’ve decided to start having more soup…just because I’m convinced it will bring fall weather a little faster. I know, I’m kind of crazy.
Even though I love making homemade soup, sometimes it’s just as good to grab a can of soup and heat it up in the microwave! We are big fans of Campbell’s ChunkyTM soups because of their hearty ingredients and great flavor. It tastes just about as good as a homemade soup…just made in a fraction of the time. There are so many delicious Campbell’s recipes, and this biscuit is a great one to add to any of them!
I don’t think a bowl of soup is really complete with some kind of bread to dip in it. So, even when I make just a bowl of soup in the microwave, I’m always tempted to make some homemade bread to go with it – like these buttery baking powder biscuits. They are so easy!
Biscuits are actually something I always have trouble making, so when I finally perfected this recipe…I was SO excited. Instead of turning out like flat little pieces of bread, they were tall, fluffy, and oh-so-buttery. Perfect for dipping in soup (or, quite honestly, just putting in a big bowl of soup and eating it that way.) They are also fantastic covered in honey! I recently made these biscuits to pair with a big bowl of @CampbellsChunky BBQ Seasoned Pork soup, and they went together so well. Jack and I shared a bowl with one of the biscuits for lunch, and I think he ate more than I did. It was just one of those feel-good meals with a lot of flavor.
