the baker upstairs: 5 quick and easy bread sides

5 quick and easy bread sides

Yum


Who's excited for fall? There are so many things to look forward to… cooler weather, cozy sweaters, hot chocolate, beautiful fall foliage… I can't wait! One of my favorite things about fall is all the yummy soups. We eat soup at least once a week (and usually twice or more) all fall and winter long, and it is heaven for me! Soup is one of my very favorite things to eat, and I have a pretty wide variety of soup recipes on the blog, from taco soup to baked potato soup to broccoli cheese soup. I usually try to make it a well-rounded meal with some fresh fruit and delicious bread on the side. I especially love making quick breads that I can just whip up while the soup is cooking.

Of course, you can't have bread without butter, and my family loves LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil. It's easy to spread right out of the fridge, and I love that it's made with three simple ingredients: sweet cream, canola oil, and salt. It has fewer ingredients than other spreadable butter products or non-butter spreads. I like knowing what I'm feeding my kids, and they love the way LAND O LAKES® Butter tastes. It's convenient, wholesome, and delicious!

Here are a few of our favorite breads:



These are one of our favorites and I make them all the time! We serve them with soup (of course) but I also love them for breakfast sandwiches. Yum!




These biscuits are sooooo good. Every time I make them, my husband makes sure there are no leftovers. They are my favorite to dip in tomato soup!



These are a new favorite, and they are fantastic. I love how tender and cheesy they are! If you don't have Dubliner available, any sharp cheddar will work fine. 



This cornbread is light and moist and perfect! I love to make it as-is, but it's also delicious southwest-style with a small can of green chilies and some cheddar cheese mixed into the batter. Depending how I'm feeling, I either make it in a 9-inch cake pan or in cupcake tins, and it's great either way!



These tortillas are the best! I've made them so many times, I have the recipe memorized, and we have them with everything. I love them for Mexican/southwest soups, tacos, breakfast burritos, and even just as a snack. They are amazingly delicious!

  60. For me, soup plus bread equals the perfect meal. To my utter dismay, however, for my spouse that's just an appetizer, no matter how hearty the soup or the bread. Sigh. Anyway, that's my favorite dinner when he's traveling and I can truly enjoy it.

    In fact, soup and bread are among my favorite fall foods. Butternut squash and apple soup, pumpkin or apple bread, sweet potato biscuits, a side dish of sauteed apples with onions and thyme--I just love cooking with the flavors of this season.
