Easy Beef and Rosemary Mock Bisquick Bake

Preheat oven to 400.

2 cups mock Bisquick (see below or use the Real)
2/3 cup water (warm if your mock Bisquick has been in the refrigerator)
1 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary (crush slightly with your fingers)
Mix together, knead slightly if necessary, and spread in sprayed 9X13.

1 lb ground beef browned, drained
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 T dried onions

Mix together and spread over dough.
Top with;
2/3 cup shredded cheddar

Bake at 400 for 25 minutes.

My family loves this. It tastes slightly like biscuits and sausage.
Mock Bisquick:
5 cups plain flour
1/4 cup baking powder
2 T sugar
1 t salt
1 cup your choice of fats (beef tallow here)
Mix dry ingredients and cut in fat. Use as you would Bisquick; 2 cups mix with approx. 2/3 cup water. Store in refrigerator.

This looks quick and easy, so I think I will add it to my menu for next week. Have you ever tried the mock Bisquick with half wheat or spelt?

Donna said...

No, but I want too! :-)

This one is the "people's choice" around here. It tastes like sausage with the rosemary in the bread. Hope your crew likes it!

This sounds really good! I just wonder about the 'fat' of choice: is it really 1 whole cup to the 5 cups flour? I've never used that much fat in a crust before.
PS. How's the Kefir coming? I am trying it in Almond Milk. Have you tried it that way?

Donna said...

Hello ValerieAnn!

This lady uses less fat:

That would probably make the "light" version.

It's not really a crust, it is more like a biscuit ;-)

The kefir is wonderful!!!!
This has the best flavor! It stays kinda sweet and yet will get good and curdy. I love it!

No, I haven't tried that. I have made almond and rice milk before.
Will you post a recipe???? :-)

Hey Donna,

I actually bought 'Silk Almond Milk' for the first time to try out because my cholesterol is up a bit. Sorry, I didn't make it from scratch.

I heard you could make kefir out of Almond Milk so I just put them in there! Came out great!

I am so glad the kefir grains work for you. And yes, it has a wonderful flavor. Of course I only have tried these particular grains, so you know better than I if you have tried another set of grains. Yours must be growing. Mine are as big as half dollars!

Have a great day Kefir buddy!

Donna said...

Yes, okay, I see what you did!
Neat-o, I'll have to try that too. I love almond milk and uhm, you know they have a dark chocolate flavor!?!?

Yes, they have grown much. I've shared some, froze some, and ate a few too ;-)

I can't help but wonder if they can somehow be converted into water/juice grains....just a thought.
