Great recipe accident!

Posted by salgal (My Page) on

Last night I was making some pasta with sausage, mushrooms and onions.
I was going to throw in a can of mushroom soup, but was out.
I did have a container of Campbells Kettle style mushroom bisque. I never tried it before, but throwing caution to the wind I dumped the whole container.

Oh my goodness! That was a hit for dinner. I think I might use that soup to make an easy chicken marsala this weekend.

I've never seen that product! I should start opening my eyes while in the grocery store! lol

Improvising makes the best meals. My dh is always leery when I follow a recipe; he likes my "experiments" much better!

RE: Great recipe accident!

I have never seen it either and I just recently went down the soup aisle with much care looking for cream of onion soup which some stores carry some don't and I would have seen that for sure. Maybe it is just a test product in certain regions.
What state are you in?
that is not a refrigerated product is it? It looks like the kind of container that you can heat right in the microwave?

RE: Great recipe accident!

well on their site Campbells has several of these kettle soups listed

Here is a link that might be useful: kettle soup

RE: Great recipe accident!

How about posting the recipe you made with the kettle soup? Sounds tasty!

RE: Great recipe accident! wasn't really a recipe.

I just browned some sausage with onions and mushrooms and stirred in cooked penne and the soup.
I was going to add a little cheddar cheese, but stopped after I tasted the soup. It has a hint of wine flavor.
When I do it again, I will probably add some peas.

I am anxious to try some other kettle soups.
You do NOT heat in this container. It has to be tranferred to pot or bowl.
I am in PA.

Sounds good! My brother once made me a pumpkin pie. He used canned pumpkin and evaporated milk. It was sooo creamy and delicious. I once made fudge on the stove but it burned a little bit. Tasted great-like dark chocolate (bittersweet). Oh I love happy accidents!

RE: Great recipe accident!

I am glad your "accident" turned out so well. I did see those soups on the grocery shelves yesterday but did not buy any. I do like mushrooms but do not care for the cream of mushroom soups.


RE: Great recipe accident!

I've never seen it either but I know I would love it, LOL


RE: Great recipe accident!

It says on their website so many people wanted to heat it in the container that they had to provide instructions on how to do that, directions are on the site I linked to.
