I'm back...with Bisquick!



My apologies for the lack of blog posts, during Celiac Awareness month, nonetheless! I've tried lots of new gluten free products this past month, one of them being the new Gluten Free Bisquick. I've heard all about this product, but hadn't yet given it a whirl. Luckily my friends at MyBlogSpark and General Mills offered me the opportunity to try out the product and host a giveaway.

Growing up, my mom made almost everything from scratch, although every once in a while we did have a box of Bisquick in the house. I only remember making pancakes from mix, but they were delicious.

When I received my sample of Gluten Free Bisquick, I was amazing at all of the meals you could whip up. First thing I made was pizza crust, and yum! I happened to be babysitting my niece and nephew that night and we made mini pizzas. Nathan made a plain cheese and I went for the works. Each pie turned out beautifully. Thick, flaky crust that browned up perfectly. I hate when my gluten free pizza crust is golden brown on the edges, but then mushy underneath and everything slides off and crumbles. Not with this crust.



The following week I made pancakes for breakfast using the skillet and pancake pen that came with the Bisquick set I was sent. Little silver dollar pancakes, light and fluffy. I followed the recipe from the back of the box, and they were tasty.


Now here's the best part. I have 2 Gluten Free Bisquick packages to give away courtesy of MyBlogSpark and General Mills!



To enter, visit the Gluten Free Bisquick site and tell me which recipe you'd like to make. You MUST include your email address with your response. (If you win, how else will I be able to contact you?)

Giveaway ends Sunday, October 31st! Trick-or-Treat!
Winner will be announce Monday, November 1st.

Whoa - GF Bisquick?! Truly, my dreams have come true! I would definitely be making the strawberry shortcake, and I've got some summer berries stashed in the freezer for just such an occasion! But first up would definitely be those pancakes - I have such fond memories of bisquick pancakes, and those look SO fluffy!

Have you seen the GF Bisquick in stores here in Chicago? I'm definitely gonna go looking for it this weekend!

I'm surprised how well it works. I saw it at my neighbor Jewel store. They carried a lot of GF products, and it was right next to the regular Bisquick! Get it, girl!

I would love to make the Cheese Garlic Biscuits. They look delicious! They remind me of the herbed rolls at Rose's in Evanston...

What I love the most about GF Bisquick is that is gave me back so many *ideas* of food I used to eat before going gluten free. GF Bisquick opened up so many possibilities! I dug out a bunch of old Bisquick recipes (or you can check their website) and cooked up a storm. So far I have made: garlic cheese biscuits, Bisquick's famous "impossible" cheeseburger pie, impossible ham and cheese pie, chicken fingers (can you say "breaded"?), pizza crust, and of course pancakes. If it's been years since you looked at Bisquick recipes-- or if you never made these old standards in the first place-- their recipe web site will be an inspiration.

I want to try making the GF Sausage Cheese Balls for the family Thanksgiving. We eat late and snack during the day and while cooking but most of the snacks are not GF. This will be my first Thanksgiving as a GF celiac.

Gluten Free Impossibly Easy French Apple Pie

Maria Spencer said...

Ok, at first I thought it would be the shortcakes, but after checking out the web page, the french apple pie looks soooo good.

Linda Carr said...

I'd like to make the Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie.

I grew up on Bisquick, before being diagnosed with celiac disease. I can't wait to find this in a store in my area.

Thanks for the information. I love reading your newsletters.

I would love to try the GF Coffee Cake recipe. My favorite boxed Coffee Cake mix has been discontinued. I need to find a yummy replacement.

Sue Horn said...

Thanks so much for the info on Bisquick Gluten Free! I had heard that it would be available soon, but I haven't seen it yet. I can't wait to try the Chicken & Dumplings recipe! I haven't had Chicken & Dumplings since before I was diagnosed a year ago.
I would like to enter to win the Bisquick package giveaway. Thanks so much for your informative updates. I have learned alot over the last year and I appreciate all the help I can get.

I would love to make chicken and dumplings...yum it sounds soooooo good. I have not been able to find the gluten free bisquick in my local grocery stores yet. So I would love to win some.

j said...

I love chicken and dumplings and haven't had much luck with GF versions so I'd probably start with that one! Although the photos of pancakes that you posted look amazing, too.

When I opened the link the first thing I saw was the Impossibly Easy French Apple Pie. I think I would try that for curiosity sake. But the recipe I would need to try is the Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake.

Jennifer G. said...

Definitely the strawberry shortcakes! I've missed those.

AEB said...

I am so excited about Bisquick - pancakes will be so easy now!

I'd like to try the strawberry shortcakes though - those look delicious!!

Of course I'm excited to try the pumpkin waffles this weekend for a Fall brunch, but I'm also excited about the almond and peach crusted pork chops. My boyfriend loves pork like that but it always falls flat b/c I omit flour when making it. Thanks for your blog - love it!

Kim said...

I want to make the turtle brownies, or the chicken and dumplings or the sausage balls or the biscuits or.... I guess I just want to make all of it with ease again!!!!!! I am so excited! This is a wonderful addition to the gluten free selection.

Before being diagnosed with CD, I loved crisps of any variety. They were my go to dessert because they were perfect when made with seasonal fruit. Alas, in 10+ years I've yet to make a crisp as good as the NGF variety. So, if I won the raffle i would make the impossibly easy french apple pie in hopes of using that oat-free topping in crisps too!

Would love to try it. Hope it doesn't have soy

I think the recipe for Banana Pecan Waffles sounds delicious! :-)
