Early Morning Biscuits

by HEAB on June 27, 2010

Last Sunday, CD and I went out to brunch with my family for Father’s Day.


I fixed myself a big plate of breakfast foods…


Growing up, one of my favorite restaurants was Cracker Barrel, and my favorite part of the meal was the basket of warm biscuits they would bring to the table as soon as we sat down. I would slather mine in apple butter, and there was nothing like it. So, last week, I did something I hadn’t done in years. I ate a biscuit, and I’ve been thinking about that darn biscuit ever since!

This morning, I got out of bed at 5:15 AM and decided it was time to take action, and look what happen to be in our cabinet…

I bought a box of Bisquick a while back to make some chicken pot pie, and honestly, I’ve been avoiding the stuff ever since. I’m really not quite sure what is so Heart Smart about it, but whatever. I wanted biscuits, and the recipe on the back of the box for drop biscuits could not have been simpler! I stirred together 1/3 cup of the Bisquick with about an 1/8 cup unsweetened almond milk. I then formed 2 small biscuits, baked them in a 450° oven for 9 minutes, and slathered them in apple butter just like old times.


So, I have no waffles or pancakes for you this Sunday, but I must say that the recipes for both on the back of the Bisquick box are sounding better and better! 😉

I’m now sitting here waiting for Target to open so that I can go purchase the supplies necessary to make my own laundry detergent. Yep, feeling rather domestic today.
