Bisquick is one of the most unique and versatile of all commercially sold baking mix on the market. There are so many different types of baked items that can be made from this mix. All you need to do is measure the amount of the mix according to the recipe and add water, mix with a spoon or mixer and it is ready to go.

This mixture is a frugal way to stretch a meal or dessert. For example, if you have beef stew leftovers and a few couple cups of fresh picked blueberries ….. just put leftover beef stew in casserole dish and cover with bisquick dumplings and bake. Blueberry cobbler or even pancakes are a treat.

In own household, thin blueberry pancakes are topped with a sweet cream cheese spread then rolled up. Delicious !
