Last week I wanted to make the classic bisquick cheeseburger pie for dinner. I grew up with this dish and always loved it. My family has always enjoyed it when I’ve made it in the past also. But it had been a long time since we had it, mainly because we no longer buy bisquick.
For a long time I have wanted to tackle making a really good bisquick substitute. Everything I have tried has been really lacking though. So I finally decided to combine some of the recipes I found and came up with this wonderful alternative.
Homemade Bisquick Mix
- 5 c. flour
- 2 T. baking powder
- 2 t. salt
- 1/4 c. sugar
- 1/2 c. dry milk powder
- 3/4 t. baking soda
- 1/2 c. butter or margarine
1. Combine all of the dry ingredients. Cut butter or margarine into the mixture with a pastry cutter or two knives until crumbly. Store in a well-sealed container in the freezer.
**To make pancakes, combine 1 1/2 c. mix with 1 egg and 1/2 – 1 c. water. (Start with a 1/2 c. water and add more as needed until desired consistency.)
- 1/2 – 1 lb. ground beef or turkey
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 t. salt
- 1/2 t. garlic powder
- 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 c. homemade bisquick mix
- 2 c. water
- 4 eggs
1. Brown ground beef with onion, salt and garlic powder. Place in a greased 9 x 13 casserole pan.
2. Cover with cheese. (If you are making this ahead of time, let the beef cool first.)
3. Whisk together mix, water and eggs. Pour over beef and cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
**This is very stolen moments-friendly. I made this at 10:00 am and it sat, uncooked, in the refrigerator until half an hour before dinner.
