Amazing Biscuits

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…

Biscuits
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.

    the butter in the pan is a MUST! It gives them a super lovely texture on the outside, love them! I have made these a dozen times probably – and they always turn out great. I have been buying those 6-packs of lemon-lime in 8oz cans so I have exactly a cup on hand in the pantry. I just pat the dough into a rectangle, and cut into 12 square pieces. They are superb for biscuits and sausage gravy!

    My mother made similar biscuits when I was a kid 60 years ago and the butter in the pan was the BEST part. Try it, you might like it as a treat.
