Bisquick is a baking mix that has flour, leavening, and oil in it (plus a bunch of preservatives). Pancakes, biscuits and muffins (and MANY other recipes) come together very quickly with this baking mix, because you just have to add a few other ingredients.
When I made brunch recently, I was sure to add Sausage Balls to my menu because not only are they the perfect finger food, everyone LOVES them! They’re so easy to make because it’s just Bisquick, sausage and shredded cheese. When I went to purchase the Bisquick I gasped! It was not cheap! Then I realized I have a recipe to make my own!
Friends, you need to have this recipe and you need to make up a batch for days when you need a quick bread, or want to make the sausage balls I just referenced. Here’s a whole list of great recipes using this baking mix.
