Ultimate Bisquick CookBook

For almost 80 years families have been relying on Bisquick to 
help make baking just a little bit easier. There is a whole 
lot more to this simple mix than just quick biscuits. As the 
decades have passed, the number of uses for Bisquick have 
grown. No longer do we need to make a crust for our pies, we 
can make Impossibly Easy Pies. When you need a quick dinner 
or dessert, you will find what you need in this collection.

For me the best thing about Bisquick is the speed factor, the 
number of ingredients required are reduced and that means 
less mess too (which is always a good thing). Versatility is 
excellent as well since there is a Bisquick recipe for 
everything from Appetizers to Dessert.

If you are looking for healthier recipes never fear there is 
a Bisquick for you as well. Between the Heart Healthy 
Bisquick and the Reduced Fat Bisquick, there are plenty of 
healthy bisquick recipes to enjoy.

Ultimate Bisquick CookBook has over 280 recipes. Beginning with
the history (Bisquick Decades of Great Taste), Q & A and Basics
for Pancakes, Waffles, Muffins, Biscuits, Dumplings and
Shortcakes) information, the recipes sections start with the
Bisquick Through the Decades and Favorite Recipes for Today.

The remaining recipes categories include Day Brighter 
Breakfasts, Savory Appetizers, Snacks and Breads, Comforting 
Casseroles and Oven Meals, 30-Minute Weeknight Dinners, Heart 
Smart Cooking for Two, Impossibly Easy Pies and Pizzas and 
Delicious Desserts, Cookies and Bars. Ending up with 
Healthful Nutrition and Cooking Information this collection 
has all of your favourites (and many more recipes which will 
soon become family favourties).

The full page photos are mouthwatering, the reproductions of 
vintage Bisquick advertising are terrific fun and the Quick 
Tips are very helpful. Each recipe includes the Prep and 
Start to Finish times and Per Serving nutritional 
information.

Enjoy this tasty recipe from Comforting Casseroles and Oven 
Meals.

Beef Pot Pie with Potato Crust

Pref Time: 20 minutes - Start to finish: 55 minutes

Makes 6 Servings

1 slice (1/2 lb) deli roast beef, cubed (1 1/2 cups)
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 jar (12 oz.) beef gravy
2/3 cup plain mashed potato mix (dry)
2/3 cup hot water
1 1/2 cups Original Bisquick mix
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon freeze-dried chopped chives

Heat oven to 375 F. In 2 quart saucepan, heat beef, frozen 
vegetables, onion and gravy to boiling over medium heat, 
stirring frequently. Boil and stir 1 minute. Keep warm.

In medium bowl, stir potato mix and hot water until well 
mixed; let stand until water is absorbed. Stir in Bisquick 
mix, milk and chives until dough forms.

Place dough on surface sprinkled with Bisquick mix; gently 
roll in Bisquick mix to coat. Shape into a ball; knead 10 
times. Press into 11 x 7 inch rectangle. Fold dough crosswise 
into thirds.

Pour beef mixture into ungreased 11 x 7 inch (2 quart) glass 
baking dish. Carefully unfold dough onto beef mixture.

Bake uncovered 30 to 35 minutes or until crust is golden 
brown.

Chicken Pot Pie with Potato Crust: Substitute 1 1/2 cups 
cooked cubed chicken for the beef and chicken gravy for beef 
gravy.

Quick Tip: It's important that the beef mixture is warm when 
the crust is placed on top. The heat from below helps cook 
the topping evenly and it won't be soggy on the bottom.
