15 Bisquick Recipes That Prove It’s Great For More Than Just Pancakes (1)

Whether you never leave the grocery store without a box or have never touched the stuff, it’s hard not to admire the staying power of Bisquick. Created in the 1930s by General Mills, it has been marketed as a shortcut to everything from biscuits to muffins. Like st0re-bought cake mixes and crescent roll dough, we’ve got to admit we’re kind into it for how convenient it is for helping us cut costs and get creative in the kitchen. Check out our 15 Bisquick recipes for ideas—trust us, it’s great for more than just pancakes.

One of the best things about Bisquick is its ability to help us achieve recipes that are greater than the sum of their parts. What do we mean? Take our banana pudding pancakes. Banana pudding? Good. Regular ol' pancakes? Good. Banana pudding pancakes? Now those are GREAT. Because you’re starting with solid pancake mix, you can get creative with toppings, fillings, and shapes. Check out our banana pancake breakfast tacos, our bacon pancake dippers, or our Boston creme pancakes to see what we mean.

It’s also a pretty incredible secret ingredient in everything from desserts to appetizers. We like using it to make other similar breakfasts like waffles, of course, but also our bacon, egg, and cheese biscuits or our brunch bread. It also can turn into a great snack, like our sausage balls or our pizza puffs. Put these out at your next party and see them disappear—you’ll love telling everyone the secret ingredient. It also translates perfectly into shortcut desserts, like our Bisquick strawberry shortcake biscuits or our deep-fried Oreos (try them with sprinkles too). Like we said, surprisingly versatile!
