Honestly, I LOVE bisquick. Its the lazy cook’s ultimately mixture of flour-y goodness. It can be used for pancakes, waffles, tea biscuits, pies, etc. One box of bisquick on hand is a lifesaver when you are looking for a quick, easy meal to make in a JIFF.
Here are some of my favourite Bisquick Recipes:
Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie
- 1 lb. cooked ground beef
- 1 1/2 c. chopped onion
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1 c. shredded cheese
- 1 1/2 c. milk
- 3/4 c. Bisquick
- 3 eggs
Mix all the ingredients together and pour in a 9 x 11 baking pan (sprayed with nonstick oil). Bake at 400 degrees 30 to 40 minutes.
- 2 cups Bisquick mix
- 1 1/3 cups milk
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- measuring cup
- mixing spoon
- waffle iron
- In a medium-sized bowl, measure 1 egg, 1 1/3 cup milk, 2 teaspoons vegetable oil, and 2 cups Bisquick mix.
- Mix the batter with a spoon just until mixed.
- Pour into waffle iron and follow the settings on your iron to ensure its fully cooked.
Red Lobster Rip Off Garlic Biscuits:
- 2 c Bisquick Baking Mix
- 1/4 c butter, melted
- 2/3 c Milk 1/4 ts Garlic powder
- 2 oz Shredded cheddar cheese
- Heat oven to 450 degrees
Mix baking mix, milk and cheese until soft dough forms; beat for about 30 seconds. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Mix margarine and garlic
powder; brush over warm biscuits before removing from cookie sheet.
No one needs to know it was made with Bisquick
This is one of my favourite ways to dress up a cake in a super cute way. Its also one of the easiest ways to dress up a cake in a super cute way. EASY= good choice every time.
I’m a big cheater, and I used store bought cake mix in a box. For the cake in the pictures below, it was a Betty Crocker SuperMoist Chocolate Fudge cake mix. I’m not going to go step by step into how to bake the cake, because the directions are on the box, and because any cake recipe will do for this cake, I just prefer chocolate in every situation
The night before you plan on serving the cake, bake your cake how you wish. For the cake down below, I used two small circular cake pans, but I’ve also made this cake using a heart shaped cake pan or a square cake pan. I like sitting my cake in the fridge when its done right in the cake pan you used to bake it in, because its easier to deal with and less likely to break apart if its cool.
For putting the cake together you will need:
- 2 cans Presidents choice Dark Chocolate or Hazelnut flavored rolled wafers. I used almost 2 400g cans for this cake, so you would need to double or triple that for a square or a rectangular cake. If you don’t live in Canada, any rolled wafer cookies will do, so long as they are rolled
- 1 batch of your favorite icing (the flavour honestly doesnt matter, so pick something that compliments the flavour of your cake
- 2 containers fresh strawberries
- 1 container fresh blueberries
Putting the Cake Together:
- Shave away the excess cake on the surface of your cake to make it flat (its easier to decorate this way)
- If your cake is two layers, add your filling and put the top layer on.
- Smear your frosting around the side of the cake only. This will just be the glue to hold your basket together and shouldn’t be visible when the cake is done.
- Cut your wafers so that they are approx the height of your cake, and start sticking them around the parameter of the cake. You could make them exactly the same size, but personally I like the look a bit better when they are just slightly uneven.
- After the whole parameter of the cake is done, you can wrap the basket together with ribbon if you wish. I usually do just to make sure it stays together better.
- Generously spread the cool whip over the top of the cake.
- Trim your berries and top the cake with as many as you like.
Keep it in the fridge til your ready to serve
This is a really awesome, easy recipe for homemade pizza dough that doesn’t require a bread maker to make I have made this recipe multiple times and it really is a no fail recipe.
Easy Pizza Dough
- 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 1 cup warm water (should be warmer than room temperature, but not “hot”)
- 2 1/2 cups bread flour
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until the yeast has become frothy. Avoid stirring the yeast/sugar mixture (it really does not make the process go faster )
- Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Knead with hands until nice and smooth.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Grease pizza pan. Roll out the dough onto the pan.
- Add your pizza sauce, and whatever ingredients you desire. Pop into the over and bake for 15-20 minutes.
- Nom like you’ve never nom’d before.
Before I finish this post, I’d just like to point out, this is my first post of 2011 What a delicious way to start out the new year!
