Was the yellow box of Bisquick a staple in your home growing up? I remember that box lasting for months and months. As you know, I was thrilled to find gluten-free Bisquick a few days ago, and the single box that I bought is already gone. I knew it wouldn’t last long. It was a tiny box, and the 16-ounce bag of flour inside was even tinier. (Obviously, or it wouldn’t fit in the box — I’m talking about settling here!) The Bisquick was gone after only making one and 3/4 recipes. So my suggestion to you is to buy TWO or even three boxes when you find them.
Last night, I needed comfort dinner. And my favorite dinner in the world is breakfast. So I kind of followed the directions on the back of the gluten-free Bisquick box to make biscuits. I haven’t had Crisco in my pantry for ten years, so I used butter instead, and we were out of milk, but almond milk worked just as well. I can’t even remember the last time I had biscuits, but these were divine.
They were divine all by themselves.
They were divine for making an egg sandwich.
They were divine with raspberry preserves.
And they were divine for a little carb loading before this morning’s spin and swim workouts.
After triathlon training, I was ready to try Aunt Pat’s suggestion. Blueberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes sounded out-of-this-world delicious. And I was going to treat myself to a hot, homemade breakfast on my last official day of summer vacation. But, alas, no chocolate chips. So, I’d have to suffer through blueberry pancakes for my recovery meal. That, and fistfuls of these beautiful little berries.
(And this is just to show you how incredibly hot and humid it is in Nashville right now. The camera lens fogged up immediately when I took my berries to my outside studio…or the porch. Natural light just wasn’t going to work this morning!)
Remember that tiny box of gluten-free Bisquick that I was so excited about? Well, after baking a single batch of biscuits last night, there wasn’t enough Bisquick left to make pancakes! Isn’t Bisquick supposed to last forever? Maybe not forever, but I thought that I could make at least two recipes with one box. I filled up my measuring cup with the remaining Bisquick and added The Aherns’ All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour Mix until I had a full cup. (This flour mixture from Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef is magic.)
Gluten-Free Bisquick gets the Gluten-Free Cat seal of approval, but they need to make a bigger box!
Until then, buy two or three.
