Day 3- Bisquick Week Challenge

Tomorrow marks the half way point for this weeks Bisquick Week Challenge and giveaways
How did you do today?

Here are some changes or thoughts for Tuesdays menu:

1. Crepes were pretty good, but very time consuming. I am happy with American pancakes :) However, I plan to use the orange glaze sauce again. Very Yummy.

2. In the Sloppy Joe Pie, I added an extra 1 1/2 Tbls of ketchup, 1 1/2 Tbls of mustard and 1/4 cup brown sugar to the meat mix. This has been a favorite so far. It will be going in my recipes box!

3. It makes things easier just to separate the meat into 6 small loaves. The directions for forming a full loaf and cutting it into the 6 servings is a bit silly!
4. Raspberry bars were good. They were BETTER when added warm to a bowl of vanilla ice cream.

Here are Wednesdays menu and recipes. The directions for the biscuit bowls are below.


Breakfast: Egg, Sausage, and cheese Biscuit Bowls(with
hollandaise sauce) Lunch: Pizza Dogs
Dinner: Ham, Broccoli, and Cheese
Desert: French Apple Pie

Biscuit Bowls:
The hollandaise sauce is an optional thing for this, but it makes it 10 times better in my opinion. Here are 3 simple recipes for a hollandaise.

For the biscuit bowls: You can prepare these the night before you plan to use them.
You can use many different baking objects to create your bowl. For a more adult size, we used a small individual cake pan that I normally use for my kids personal birthday cake. You could use custard bowls or any small (oven safe) glass bowl. For a brunch you could even use a cupcake pan to make mini-cups. No matter what bowl you choose, you want to flip them upside down and grease the outside of the bowl well. Then set it on a cookie sheet.

*Follow directions for normal Bisquick biscuits.
*Roll out (1/2 inch thick), but do not cut out biscuits. Cut dough with enough space to cover your baking bowl.
* Lay your dough over the bowl. Be sure to cut around the bottom of the bowl so that the dough is NOT touching the cookie sheet.

*Watch the bowl carefully as it bakes. For cupcake pans, the bowl will only take 5-8 minutes to brown. For other bowls 8- 10 minutes. Once it has browned, it if finished.
*Let cool for about 2-3 minutes.

*Using hot pads, gently grab the bread bowl and pull up. Immediately set it on a cooling rack to cool.
*Then fill with all of your favorite breakfast goodies!
