Your most unusual Bisquick recipe?

The missus and I are discovering the flexibility of Bisquick. Do you have a recipe that incorporates unusual ingredients?

Dunk oreo in bisquick, put bisquick oreo in deepfryer till the bisquick turns golden brown, dust with powdered sugar. (You can generalize this food+bisquick+deepfryer+powdered sugar to a lot of things besides oreos. Also, these are basically poison. DELICIOUS POISON.)

I sprinkle a little in my eggs if I'm making omelets to make them fluffier and more easy to flip.

I once substituted pina colada mix for milk and added pineapple chunks. It offended me deeply but my friends loved it.

Chopped fresh parsley, fresh ground pepper, cayenne, sharp cheddar and milk, mixed with Bisquick to floppy doughbatter consistency, and dropped in spoonfuls on top of boiling soup. Lid it, wait ten minutes, and eat.

I guess that's not very unusual. But it's really fucking good.

Sausage Balls
1 pound of hot sausage meat
1 pound of thinly shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3 cups of bisquick

Mix together with hands, and roll dough into quarter-sized balls.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and cook for 20ish minutes at 350.

Warning: extraordinarily addictive. Make these once for guests and people will demand them forevermore.

1 cup of bisquick - add porter or amber beer until you get biscuit texture (about 6 or 8 oz.), put in batter into greased muffin tin, bake at 375 for 10 minutes.

Google search "impossible pie" for a quiche like concoction that magically forms a crust.

Make the sausage balls. Seriously.

I like bisquick, but it is danged expensive for what it is.

What it is, is this, basically: Missouri Mix.

My mom used to whip up double and triple recipes of it. She kept it in a big tupperware dish in the garage freezer, because the shortening would start tasting a little old after a while.

It worked perfectly, and cost pennies.

She always called it Missouri Mix, but I figured it was something she made up and named herself, cuz she was from Missouri. I am shocked to find it online under that name.

Wait, this isn't unusual, this is what Bisquick is for. It has other uses, but they all pale in comparison to sausage balls.

Yes, for those who are lucky, but how could I rest knowing someone somewhere may be living a life in which sausage balls are unusual?

The Filipino steamed cake called puto is traditionally made with rice flour, but a common alternative recipe uses bisquick and mayonnaise. I have no idea where it came from, but tbh, when I was a kid, I liked this version better than the traditional. I don't have my aunt's recipe (my favorite of this style), but google "bisquick puto." This sounds about right:

2 eggs
1 c granulated white sugar
2 tb mayonnaise
3 c Bisquick baking mix
1 1/2 c milk

Lightly grease muffin cups. Beat eggs and sugar together. Add mayonnaise and mix thoroughly. Add Bisquick and beat until smooth, adding milk gradually. Fill muffin cups 1/2 full and steam over boiling water for 15 minutes or until done.


Now I want to make some!

Huh -- how does that sausage ball recipe work? Isn't Bisquick a powder? How can you make balls out of a recipe that's 3:1 powder to meat?
posted by palliser at 10:07 PM on February 6, 2010


okay, sallybrown, so having just made the sausage balls in question (delicious, certainly, but not exactly balls, more bisquits, or sharp cheddar meat cookies) I must ask, what do you mean by hot sausage meat? My parboiled sausages worked okay, but they're not an even consistency.
Palliser, bisquick is mighty. It turns the cheese and greasy ungency of hot sausage meat into dough with alacrity. Do not question the bisquick.

How can you make balls out of a recipe that's 3:1 powder to meat?

Because it's not exactly 3:1 powder to meat--it's 3 cups of powder to 1 pound of meat (a fat tube of sausage meat), and 1 pound of cheese (close to two Cracker Barrel blocks, shredded).

You have to squish it all together, and it takes a few minutes, but it works.

what do you mean by hot sausage meat

Hot-flavored. Spicy. Sorry, I should have specified!

They should look pretty much like this. I like mine a little smaller, but whatever floats your boat. I pinch a little dough off and roll it between my palms to get it nice and spherical.

It's not particularly unusual, but I use it for lazy quiche: 1 cup bisquick, 4 eggs, 1 tablespoon oil, 1/2 cup of the cheese(s) of your choice (or more, if you want) and whatever you have in your fridge, I've used broccoli, peppers, onions, roasted chicken, turkey sausage, etc. Salt and pepper to taste. Mix eggs, bisquick and oil together in a bowl, then add the cheese and fillings. Pour into a pie pan and cook at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until a fork comes out clean.

There's a semi-famous diner-y place in NYC called Shopsin's. They have a ton of pancake and crepe recipes and a like 300 item menu. Anyway, one of the revelations in their cookbook was that his famous pancakes were all like Bisquick or Aunt Jemima ready mix. So delicious.

2nding the "Add it to the eggs" thing above. They do it at IHOP, too.

By hot sausage meat, I believe she meant spicy. That's how my recipe originally worked (I don't like spicy foods so I switched to the milder sausage). You could probably substitute the sausage for whatever kind/brand/flavor you like.. although maybe not the honey stuff..

All the moisture in sausage balls comes from the meat. (and in my case, the cheese)

I'll point out, mostly because I am an idiot for not telling you to make little balls from the dough that forms (I just use a cookie disher), that the only real difference between my recipe and sallybrown's is I'm using cheese wiz instead of shredded cheader. Mines a more lazy version, and both ways are very.. very yummy.

Gosh darn it, I love Metafilter. I was just bemoaning that I forgot to order wings for the Superbowl. I'm gonna make sausage balls instead and everyone will love them. They're a Christmas morning dish in my family and I don't think of them at any other time. They'll be great for the Superbowl party.

Maple Pecan Danish Coffee Cake. It's a really weird looking recipe and the reviews on the website are mixed but my guests and I LOVED it.

Y'all are such a bad influence on me. I have NEVER purchased Bisquick let alone Jimmy Dean sausage. Yet here I sit eating sausage balls and I came here to vouch for their deliciousness. I'll send you the bill for my quadruple bypass as I'm alone this weekend and probably won't have the willpower to stop at a reasonable number.

Do a web search for Impossible Quiche and pick your favorite ingredients.
Basically, you make an egg and cheese and/or vegetable and/or sausagey quiche batter, then mix Bisquick into the eggs and pour it in a pan (no crust!). The bisquick sets up and browns at the edges but not the center, leaving you a crusty edge, and a quichey middle, and no need to make/roll/prepare/buy a pie crust.

Here's the Filipino puto recipe mentioned by Odin above that is in our family cookbook.

Puto (using Bisquick Mix)

Ingredients:

1-2 eggs
¾ cups sugar
1 ¼ cup milk or 1 cup evaporated milk
2 cups Bisquick
2 teaspoon vanilla

Beat eggs lightly, then add milk and Bisquick flour slowly until smooth. Add vanilla. Add sugar. Turn oven on to 350.

Kinda tricky but not really tricky thing about this is that you should pour the batter into a cake pan which sits on top of a rack which sits inside a large roasting pan filled with water. It’s really not that complicated. Or you can make mini-puto by using muffin tins.

Steam 25-30 minutes until inserted knife is clean. Yummmmmmm.
