Bisquick Dinner Recipes

Good morning! When David, Sammi and Chris were small I used to make this first recipe a lot. It is one that is on the back of the Bisquick box. We'd top it with ketchup and mustard. Sometimes I'd even make some french fries to go with it. The Betty Crocker site has a lot more Bisquick recipes if you wanna check out some more.

Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie
1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
1/2 cup Original Bisquick® mix
1 cup milk
2 eggs

1. Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray.
2. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in salt. Spread in pie plate. Sprinkle with cheese.
3. In small bowl, stir remaining ingredients with fork or wire whisk until blended. Pour into pie plate.
4. Bake about 25 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Bake 30 to 35 minutes.

Impossibly Easy Taco Pie
1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 package (1 ounce) Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix
1 can (4.5 ounces) Old El Paso® chopped green chiles, drained
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup Original Bisquick® mix
3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese (3 ounces)
Old El Paso® salsa (any variety)
Sour cream, if desired

1. Heat oven to 400ºF. Grease 9-inch pie plate. Cook ground beef and onion in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in seasoning mix (dry). Spoon into pie plate; top with chilies.
2. Stir milk, eggs and Bisquick mix until blended. Pour into pie plate.
3. Bake about 25 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 8 to 10 minutes longer. Cool 5 minutes. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft) Increase first bake time to about 28 minutes.

Special Touch-Top it like a taco! Pile slices of this zesty pie high with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced green onions and sour cream.
Substitution-For a zippier flavor, chop a jalapeño chili and use it instead of the green chilies.

Quick Cheeseburger Bake

1 can (11 oz) condensed Cheddar cheese soup
1 cup Green Giant® Valley Fresh Steamers™ frozen mixed vegetables

2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
3/4 cup water
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)

2. Stir Bisquick mix and water in baking dish until moistened; spread evenly. Spread beef mixture over batter. Sprinkle with cheese.

Bisquick Chicken Pot Pie
2 cups frozen veggies, thawed
1 cup cooked chicken, or 1 can chicken
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup Bisquick
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
Save Recipe

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix veggies, chicken and soup in a glass pie plate. In a separate bowl, mix the Bisquick, milk and egg. Pour batter on veggie mixture. Bake for 30 minutes.

Of course, if you're on a tight budget, or just extremely cheap (like myself), you don't have to use the Bisquick brand. I use a generic baking mix, along with everything else generic, and it is just as good.

When Ray's oldest daughter lived with us, we liked making the Chicken Pot Pie. However, we were not crazy about all the veggies, so we just added corn and potatoes. Mmmm. After the second or third time of making it that way, Ray informed us that he didn't care for it. He always ate it though, he said by the time he got home he was just hungry and ate whatever was for dinner. I love the fact that we will just eat whatever I make with no complaints. So unlike our youngest, Rylie Jo, who will eat one thing this week and hate it next week.

By the way, I'd like to make a little product recommendation. Last week I bought a bottle of that stuff call "Cool Blue Agent", or something like that. It's made by Listerine. It has a cool little measure thing right at the top of the bottle. The kids just slowly squeeze the bottle and it measure exactly how much you need into the neck of the bottle. If they squeeze too much, the excess goes back into the bottle. The kids swish it around in their mouth for about 30 seconds and it will leave a blue stain on their teeth showing them where they really need to concentrate on brushing.

Rylie really enjoys using this stuff and now makes of point of remembering to brush her teeth. She will even go into the bathroom in the middle of the day to brush now, without my having to tell her to do it. I just have to count to 30 while she swishes the stuff in her mouth.

I don't know if this will work the same way for other kids (getting them to brush more often), but it's worth the $3 or $4 to give it a try.

I went to take a look at my garden the other day. I am so flippin' excited. It's been less than a week and I've got radishes popping up. I can't wait to get everything else planted. Mmmm, fresh veggies. My neighbor isn't doing a garden this year so she gave me some of her fresh oregano to put in my garden. I also have fresh chives growing out there. Wow, let me tell you, those chives are awesome and I don't have to do anything to keep them. They just keep coming up like crazy.

Well, I've got a lot of laundry and cleaning to do today, so have a wonderful day and I'll see ya later.

So one definite advantage of the Sinus - Aero system is that, your portable
nebulizer comes with liquid medications (as prescribed by your physician) made by a trusted sinus compounding pharmacy.
With the reservoir filled, plug the spray gun into either an electrical outlet or an air compressor.
Several strain controls can be operated with all brands of compressors and can come
with visible contacts, enough room for wiring with numerous openings and holes.
