My New Favorite Product

My mom and I went grocery shopping a few weeks ago for dinner and I was showing her the gluten free section of the grocery store when bright shiny object caught my eye. Really it was just a bright orange box, but it was so exciting for me it could have been gold. What could this product be that would get me this excited? Well, this product is going to make my wheat-free life so much more pleasant. I don't even know if I could name all the recipes that I could use this product in and it is one of the few things I asked Nate to bring over to me when he visited me in Budapest. Have I built the suspense up enough? Ok, ok. This life changing product is none other than

Now, I was excited to try this new Bisquick, but I was wary about it. I have gotten really excited about other wheat free and gluten free products before, but upon trying them, have found them inedible (if it has garbanzo bean flour in it I don't like it) so I needed to test it out.

I decided to make garlic cheddar biscuits since I wasn't able to eat the ones at Red Lobster when we went to eat there the other night. My major concern with this new mix was that, since its main ingredient was rice flour, the biscuits would be gritty. The batter was very gritty and so I continued to be concerned, but I'm really happy to report that the final product was not one bit gritty. Now I need to find out how they did that.

I made these for me, Nate, his sister and her fiance. We all liked them so much that there were no biscuits left by the end of the night! I officially think that Gluten Free Bisquick is a Winner! The best part is that I can order it online so I don't have to hope that it is in our grocery store in Florida.

Ingredients: Makes about 10 biscuits

  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten 
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons margarine, melted
  •  garlic salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet. In a large bowl, combine Bisquick, Cheddar cheese, and garlic. Stir in milk and eggs. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Brush biscuits with melted margarine, and sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake for 5 more minutes, or until lightly browned. Enjoy!
