Hi friends! This past weekend I had a little project for work in South Florida and since the boys had a four day weekend off from school we decided to take them with me.
We had a blast and, even though it wasn’t all vacation for me, we certainly ate like it was a vacation and now it’s back to reality. Needless to say I’m going to be having a few lighter meals in preparation for the holidays ahead. Now I know Cheddar Bacon Biscuit Poppers don’t sound particularly “light” but bear with me.
Like me, I know a lot of you love soup – especially when the weather gets cooler. For me, soup is also a really convenient thing to take for lunch since most days I am running around like a lunatic and hardly have a chance to eat anyway!
I also find that if I don’t take lunch with me I either skip lunch (no bueno) or end up ravenous and then I make realllly bad food choices.
I was excited to partner with Campbell’s® to try their Homestyle Light soups. At 100 calories a serving for the soup, plus about 100 for the biscuit popper, I personally think that is slightly better way to eat lunch than say… a bag of chips or a few mini candy bars. 😉 I did add just a few bacon crumbles on top and a sprinkling of cheese so we are at just around 200 calories or so once we add a little popper on the side.
I love that Campbell’s® Homestyle Light starts with farm grown vegetables, they add no preservatives and the soups are available in 29 varieties. That, my friends, means a different soup for lunch almost every day of the month. Love that @Campbells! Excited about adding some new delicious Campbell’s recipes into my daily lunch routine.
And now for these Biscuit Poppers…
- 1 can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (5 biscuits)
- 2 cups shredded medium Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
- 2-3 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- Prepare a cookie sheet by spraying with a little non-stick oil.
- Separate dough into 5 biscuits then separate each biscuit into 2 layers.
- Press each to form 4-inch rounds.
- Place 1 tablespoon cheese in center of each round.
- Add a few bacon crumbles to each.
- Pull up dough around cheese, and pinch to seal.
- Place poppers seam side up 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
- Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve with your favorite soup!
Hope you are enjoying the fall weather wherever you may be!
