Just Like KFC….7UP Bisquick Biscuits

Just Like KFC….7UP Bisquick Biscuits

My mother made homemade bread all the time. The best part was walking in the door from school and be able to have a piece with peanut butter and jelly. It was so delicious. I leaned how to make all kinds of breads. I had an Aunt that had 7 boys and 7 girls. She made homemade bread everyday to feed them all. I can remember the hot bread coming out of the oven, lots and lots of loaves.

I have made lots of bread in my life and at first I was awful. But I kept at it and won a blue ribbon at the State Fair. If you have not tried to make homemade biscuits you are missing out. Try making the leftover biscuits with egg, cheese, and bacon – YUMMY. Plus these biscuits are equally delicious covered with sausage gravy.

They are so scrumptious right out of the oven too with homemade jam or jelly. But not just generic biscuits, today let me share this recipe for 7UP Bisquick Biscuits. You will not make any other kind after making these.

You will love these easy biscuits recipe and they taste just like KFC biscuits!!!

Bisquick is a premixed baking mix that consists of flour, shortening, baking soda, salt, and sugar.  It is in the same aisle as the dried pancake mix at your local grocery store. 

ONLY 4 INGREDIENTS and a few minutes you can make these yummy 7UP biscuits.

4 Ingredient Biscuits

  1. Bisquick
  2. 7Up Soda
  3. Butter
  4. Sour Cream 

Mix 1/2 cup of Bisquick or 1/2 cup of flour and then sprinkle half of it on the counter. This dough is sticky so it is best to flour your hands before working with the dough.

Put the dough on the counter and sprinkle the rest of the flour or Bisquick on top. Knead it a few times and when it is not so sticky you can begin to roll it out.

I roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch high and then cut biscuits with a drinking glass.

Pull the baking sheet back out of the oven. By now the butter should have completely melted.

Put the biscuits right next to each other in the pan so they will rise up higher. Then bake for around 15 minutes until the tops are golden brown.

(Baking Tip…..You can substitute any lemon-lime soda like Sprite or ginger ale for the 7Up.)

If you don’t have any Bisquick, you can make these 7up biscuits with flour instead, or make Homemade “Bisquick” mix using the recipe below.
