Are you a fan of soup?  Me, too! But if you’re like me, you like to dab up every ounce of it from the bottom of that bowl, you need something to dip, something like these Cheesy Cornbread Drop Biscuits!


January is National Soup Month

January is National Soup Month.  That might be one of the best things January has to offer?  Typically, at least where I live, January means bitter cold, grey skies, and gloom.  In fact, by the end of the month, it feels like about January 87th. It just drags on and on and on…..

I make a whole lot of soup in January.  I bet we have it for dinner a couple of times a week.  But sometimes there just isn’t time to dice up all of those vegetables and cook a pot of soup all day.  Sometimes, even “foodies” like me need an easy way out.  Last week, I had one of those days.

Soup & Biscuits in a Snap

The kids headed back to school after winter break, and it was time for me to get myself back on track with work, and with the clutter left behind from the holidays. 

It was one of those days where, before I knew it, it was lunchtime.  Then the next time I looked I was rushing out the door to get them at school.  The day flew by and I hadn’t even given a thought to what was for dinner that night.  I went digging around my pantry, to see what I could scare up. 

We needed something to warm us because it was a frosty -14 outside.

Look at that rich bowl of soup!  Everything I made for dinner, I had on hand.  I whipped up a pot of Idahoan Steakhouse Soups Loaded Potato, opened up one of those bags of lettuce where all of the toppings and dressing is right inside, and made a batch of Cheesy Cornbread Drop Biscuits to go along with it all. 

In about 30 minutes, dinner was served.

Mix it all up, drop by 1/4 cup sized scoops onto a cookie sheet, and bake them for 15 minutes.  Serve them warm alongside a warm bowl of Idahoan Steakhouse Loaded Potato Soup, a small salad on the side, and dinner is done!

  2. Homemade biscuit is the best, and when it’s this fast to bake a fresh batch, there is no reason not to make them all the time. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. These biscuits look and sound so good! I’m tempted to make some and have them with a bowl of soup right now.
