Here at The Daily Meal, we are always looking for new ways to make weeknight dinners quick and easy without sacrificing flavor or quality. Enter Bisquick, the prepared baking mix that's a mixture of flour, shortening, salt, and baking powder. Bisquick was originally created as a shortcut for making fresh biscuits, but the mix has since become a staple in kitchens across the country and can be used to make a variety of other foods.
With a little ingenuity and resourcefulness, Bisquick can be used to make many of your favorite foods. Think of it as an easy one-step prepared mix that can replace having to add multiple other ingredients to your batter. And now with gluten-free versions available, there are no excuses not to take advantage of this simple baking shortcut.
Using Bisquick, whip up some tortillas for your next taco Tuesday or make a hearty bowl of potato gnocchi. We’ve also included recipes for churros, pretzels, and meat pies with a flakey, golden crust.
So, think outside of the (Bisquick) box and get creative with the baking mix. Check out some of the recipes we've compiled and be inspired to create your own.
