● 1/2 C. Bisquick

Bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
2. Impossible Cheeseburger Pie
Pie crust made from biscuit mix, filled with ground beef, onions, cheese, and cheese sauce, makes for an easy weeknight dinner. To make the pie, you will need the following:
● 1 lb ground beef (at least 80% lean)
● 1 cup chopped onion
● 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
● 1 cup milk
● 2 tbsp onion soup mix
● 1/2 cup Bisquick
● 2 eggs
In a large skillet, sauté the ground beef and onion until the beef is browned and the onion is softened. The grease should be removed. Fill a greased 9-inch pie pan halfway with the mixture. Next, the cheese should be sprinkled over the meat. In a medium bowl, mix milk, onion soup mix, Bisquick, and eggs. Pour mixture over meat and cheese in the pie pan. Bake in a preheated (400º F) oven for 25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the burger pie cool for a few minutes before serving.
3. Easy Pizza Casserole
This easy-to-make pizza casserole only uses a few ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. The following ingredients are needed to make this casserole.
● 3 3/4 cup Bisquick
● 1 cup water
● 1 tsp garlic powder
● 1 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
● 1 (14-15 oz) jar pizza sauce
● 6 oz sliced pepperoni
● 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Combine Bisquick, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning in a medium bowl. Stir in water until a soft dough forms (If the dough is too sticky, add a few tablespoons of Bisquick. If it feels dry, add a tablespoon of water). Divide the dough in half and drop tablespoon-sized portions all over the bottom of a prepared 9"x13" baking dish. It is okay if the dough doesn't cover all the spaces in the pan. Drizzle 1 cup of the pizza sauce over the dough, and layer with half of the pepperoni. Spread half of the mozzarella cheese over the pepperoni. Using the remaining ingredients, repeat the entire process again. Bake in a preheated oven (375º F) for 20-25 minutes. Cut into squares, and serve warm.
4. Warm Caramel Pudding Cake

● 3/4 cup Brown Sugar Blend

Mix Bisquick, 1 cup brown sugar blend, and milk in a separate bowl. Pour it over the liquid already in the pan, but do not stir it together. Bake in a preheated oven (350º F) for 30 minutes (9x13") or 45 minutes for a 2-quart pan, or until the cake is cooked through. You will have a layer of delicious, gooey caramel at the bottom of the pan, topped with a warm cake. Serve with light vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.

If you're planning to make a recipe with Bisquick, here are some tips to keep in mind.
● When measuring, spoon the mix into a dry-ingredient measuring cup without sifting, and level the top with a straight-edged utensil. Do not pack or tap the mix into the cup.
● For a Bisquick recipe, you can substitute equal amounts of water for the milk. The taste and texture will, however, slightly differ as a result.
● The recipe may require you to knead the dough, but avoid overworking the dough as this can make the biscuits tough.
● Store biscuit mix in an airtight container or ziplock bag in a cool, dry place. For longer storage, store it in the refrigerator or freezer.
● During hot and humid weather, you may find that dough and batters are more sticky, soft, or wet. The batter or dough can be made easier to work with by adding a small amount of Bisquick to it.
