Winter still has a firm, unyielding grip on us here in Canada, the weather this week is seriously cold. While we may get some nice days between the -25 weather, winter deep freeze temps come back with a vengeance as soon as we get comfortable with warmer weather.
That said, I am still in winter cooking mode. Soup, stews, anything that can be made in my crockpot and will warm us up at the end of the day are tops on my list.
With my soups, I love to make biscuits, mainly because my soups can be very vegetable based and not as filling as a stew can be. I also love to make biscuits because they can be sent to school with the kids for lunches the next day, along with a container of soup.
While I love a plan biscuit to sop up my soup with, sometimes you want to jazz them up a bit. Bacon and cheddar do the trick.
It’s easy, simple and of course, oh so delicious when you add in bacon to my favorite biscuit!
