If you have a Facebook account I am sure you’ve seen the recipes time and time again in your news feed. For the most part I glance at them and then move on. I’ve tried a few and I’m not always impressed…but the every so often one catches my eye that I can’t resist…
This recipe was one I couldn’t resist trying…so were they good??? Actually they were GREAT!!
Hubby and I both love biscuits. One of the favorite meals ever around our house has always been biscuits and gravy.
So here’s the recipe…only 4 ingredients.
4 cups Bisquick
1 cup sour cream
1 cup 7-up
1/2 cup melted butter
Mix Bisquick, sour cream, melted butter and 7 up. Dough will be very soft – don’t worry. Knead and fold dough until coated with your baking mix. Pat dough out and cut biscuits using a round biscuit / cookie cutter. Place biscuits on pan and bake @ 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until brown.
Interesting right?!?! BUT WAIT…This is where the story gets even more interesting. I didn’t read the original recipe! I just saw the ingredients assumed how to make them and did. Then as I was writing this blog post I read through the instructions. The original instructions said this, “Mix Bisquick, sour cream and 7 up. Dough will be very soft – don’t worry. Knead and fold dough until coated with your baking mix. Pat dough out and cut biscuits using a round biscuit / cookie cutter. Melt butter in bottom of cookie sheet pan or 9×13 casserole dish. Place biscuits on top of melted butter and bake @ 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until brown.”
I failed to read the highlighted part. The biscuits get put in the butter…..not the butter in the biscuit mix.
I’ll have to try them the other way now…but maybe not, I can’t imagine them tasting any better than they already did!
Today I am thankful that we eat most of our meals at home. We don’t eat out much…probably twice a month. We ate out a little more when we were working on the house all the time but when we are in a regular schedule two-maybe three times a month is it. That’s not too bad considering I feed Hubby two full meals a day.
I remember when the whole family went on a trip to Washington D.C. when the girls won the Iowa National History Day competition and advanced to nationals. We ate out for two meals a day for a week. It was awful. Hubby and I both had gut rot. Eating out that much just wasn’t fun for us and it didn’t make us feel good at all.
I have to say..when we do go out to eat, it’s for social or convenience. For the most part, we both prefer the food I make….and luckily, I like to cook.
