EASY Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Today we served up a batch of Garlic Cheese Biscuits. They turned out great. I doubled the batch and there were hardly any left. They went very well with our homemade tomato soup.
Garlic Cheese Biscuits
1 1/2 C. flour
1 1/2 T. sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 teas. salt
3 C. shredded cheddar cheese (I didn't double the cheese)
1 C. milk
1 egg
1/4 C. melted butter
1 T. garlic powder
Stir together dry ingredients, then stir in cheese. In another bowl beat together the liquids. Pour into dry ingredients and stir to combine well. Bake at 375 for 20-25 min. Enjoy!
Tomato Soup
4 T. butter
2 T. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
basil (looks and taste)
1/4 C. flour
3 T. tomato paste
1/2 t. dried thyme
2 cans (14 1/2 oz.) chicken broth
2 cans (28 oz) whole peeled tomatoes in juice
Melt butter, add onion, oil, salt and pepper. Cook until onion is translucent. Stir in flour and tomato paste, cook 1 minute.
To a saucepan, add thyme, broth, and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. Blend to smooth or I put in the blender before heating which reduces the risk of burns. But I only chopped everything fine rather than a complete blend. Heat and serve.

My dear friend, I just wanted to tell you that I was trying to chose between photos to post on Nathan's missions trip, and the one I didn't opt on, was of him feeding the children the lollies (candy) and the children were all around him! I saw your comment and had to come tell you :D Just like your son's experience with the candy and the children!

Thank you for your always encouraging comments... they are a blessing to me...

I love the sound of these biscuits as I love garlic and cheese ;)

How many do you think this soup recipe will serve? Do you double it?
P.S. Wonder why it will not come up on the comments right?

This sounds like a yummy meal that I will have to try for my dinner sometime. Since I haven't had lunch yet, it also made me very hungry. :)

Making it for dinner tonight. The biscuits spread a lot and don't look as good as yours but they taste yummy. Soup's still simmering but taste tests say, "mmmmm, mmmmm". Thanks for sharing!

Christy, mom of 4 + 1 in heaven + 1 on the way. Blessed!

You know what it probably was? I forgot I had to use rice milk instead of regular. I don't think that sets up as well. Like I said they tasted great but they were pretty flat. They went great with the soup, too.
