If you’ve ever made a pot of soup or chili and wanted bread to go with it, but realized you have none, you have two options. Run to the store and get some or make some yourself. (I guess three options if you count just not having bread, but that’s usually not an option for me!)

Obviously, you can’t make a good loaf of crusty bread in the time it takes to make soup, so the next best thing is a quick and easy drop biscuit like this one. So easy and will satisfy the need to have something carby to dip into your soup.

These come together quickly with mostly ingredients you have on hand, but they have a secret ingredient that adds a bit of heat and flavor: Ava Jane’s Kitchen Blackened Fish seasoning blend. This spicy, Cajun blend pairs nicely with the cheddar and turns these biscuits into something special. Especially good with a chili or stew.


Makes about 10


1 cup flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons Ava Jane’s Blackened Fish spice blend

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon minced chives

4 tablespoons butter, cut into cubes

2/3 cup milk



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix flour, baking powder, and seasoning in a large bowl. Cut in butter using fingers or pastry blender. Add cheese, chives, and mil. Stir until it comes together.

Drop spoonfuls onto parchment lined baking sheet. Bake until browned, 12-15 minutes.
