Soup and Biscuits

While on vacation in Branson, we went to the Dixie Stampede. We loved the show, but loved the food too. Our favorites were the soup and biscuit. My family doesn't eat soup PERIOD, so for them to love this soup and want me to make it, it must be Wonderful! The boys enjoyed dipping their biscuit into the soup. I am hungry for them again this weekend and thought I'd share this with all of you too. Happy eating!

Both sound great. Why the corn syrup in the beginning, do you think? Also would you mind dropping me a line at

I remember eating there - sooo good! Except we went in Tennessee. I should try making this- I looked up the recipe a long time ago and never made it.
