All You Need is Bisquick!

Hello! It’s Gourmet Sister here to tell all about the Baking with Betty Event at the General Mills Headquarters. Mandy was unable to go to Minneapolis, so I happily went in her stead. The whole trip from the Dinner Cruise to the Baking Party was amazing, and I had a wonderful time. Everyone there was gracious and happy to share tips, and of course, recipes!

My first session was "It's All about Breakfast", featuring easy and quick recipes using Bisquick.

I was feeling a little daunted since I never use Bisquick. My family is on a budget and we have allergies so we don’t usually buy many packaged foods. But, the Fresh Lemon Cream Crepes recipe has changed my mind about Bisquick. Tonight I tried it out on my “meat and potatoes” family. It was a huge success. My in-laws are coming over tomorrow, so I’m making ahead, a platter of crepes for dessert. I was impressed with how quick and delicious this dish was! There are tons of Bisquick recipes on the Betty Crocker website that have moved way past pancakes.
Here's Julie from Joy's Hope proudly displaying the crepes...yummy!Fresh Lemon Cream Crepes
Makes 10
Crepes Ingredients:
½ C. Bisquick mix
1 TB sugar
½ C. milk
1 TB melted butter
2 eggs

Filling Ingredients:
2 C. sour cream
½ C. milk
1 TB grated lemon peel
¼ C. fresh lemon juice
1 box (4-serving size) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling
2 C. fresh raspberries

1. In small bowl, beat Bisquick mix, sugar, ½ cup milk, the melted butter and eggs with whisk or fork until blended. Grease 6- or 7-inch nonstick skillet with shortening; heat over medium heat until bubbly. For each crepe, pour 2 tablespoons batter into skillet; immediately rotate skillet until batter covers bottom. Cook until golden brown on bottom side. Run wide spatula around edge to loosen; turn and cook other side until golden brown. Stack crepes as you remove them from skillet, placing waxed paper between each; keep covered.

2. In small bowl, beat sour cream, ½ cup milk, the lemon peel, lemon juice and pudding mix with whisk or fork until blended.

3. To assemble each crepe, spoon about ¼ cup of the filling on one end of crepe; top with 5 raspberries. Roll up; sprinkle each crepe with powdered sugar. Serve with additional raspberries.

We also got to make so many other delicious recipes using Bisquick, many aren't on the website yet, so you can be the first to try them out!
