Everything you need to know about Cooking with Bisquick
Before we dive into the best Bisquick recipes, let’s tackle some of the most common questions people ask when cooking and baking with Bisquick.
What is the difference between Bisquick and pancake mix?
Bisquick and pancake mix sure look the same. So what’s the big difference? In a word…sugar! Pancake mixes tend to contain just a bit more sugar for a slightly sweeter finished product than if you just used Bisquick.
Some people also add a bit more baking powder for extra rise if you are using pancake mix in recipes with Bisquick.
How is Bisquick different from flour?
Bisquick is different from flour because Bisquick combines several ingredients. Bisquick is made with self-rising flour. It also contains a leavening agent, shortening, sugar, and salt. Think of it as flour plus fat.
Is Bisquick unhealthy?
Bisquick isn’t unhealthy, but it does contain trans fat. Rather than worrying about Bisquick itself, consider the whole recipe. What other ingredients are you using and what side dishes will accompany the meal? You can also look for homemade recipes to have more control over the ingredients.
Can you use Bisquick for flour?
Sort of! Bisquick and flour aren’t exactly interchangeable because they’re two different things. Flour is, well, flour. Remember that Bisquick is flour plus fat.
One cup of Bisquick contains 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder and 3 teaspoons of shortening. Examine the recipe you intend to use and see if you will need to add more of these ingredients. For example, if the recipe calls for one cup of flour and two teaspoons of baking powder, you want to make sure that you only add a half teaspoon of baking powder.
How long does Bisquick last after opening?
Like most baking ingredients, how long they last depend on how they are stored. If you use an air-tight container, you can expect Bisquick to last for about one year after opening. Given how much we love these best Bisquick recipes, we doubt your Bisquick will last that long!

Bisquick Breakfast Recipes
Looking to feed a crowd in the morning or need something fast and easy for a holiday brunch? This recipe is a real crowd-pleaser with eggs, cheese, and sausage. Plus, this breakfast casserole is easy to reheat if you have leftovers.
Quiche always seems fancy, but that doesn’t mean that it needs to call for a lot of ingredients or take a lot of time to make. Bisquick mix does a lot of the heavy lifting in this dish. While it might be most familiar when prepared with ham and cheese, you can swap in any of your favorite ingredients.
We had you at pie, didn’t we? While this is definitely savory, not sweet, it will become a fast favorite. And we do mean fast. You can prep this meal in 10 minutes! The mix of eggs, cheese, and potatoes makes it a hearty meal that anyone can squeeze into their morning routine.
If you think the only easy and delicious overnight breakfast is overnight oats, think again! The original recipe calls for sausage, bacon, peppers, onion, and cheese. But feel free to experiment–or use up whatever veggies are in your veggie drawer. This casserole dish is flexible and filling!
Confession time. I love pancakes, but I hate trying to stand over a stove, timing the flipping and serving just so. This recipe is a lifesaver! It calls for 3 ingredients–no, really–and it bakes up in the oven. That means every serving is cooked to perfection, and everyone gets a warm plate of pancakes.
No list of Bisquick recipes would be complete without muffins. But these aren’t your standard muffins. These cheddar zucchini muffins make the perfect brunch dish. If you really want to up the adorableness, you can test out a mini muffin pan. Just know that you absolutely will have to eat more than one.
Homemade muffins in under 30 minutes? Yes, please! The muffins themselves stay really moist thanks to the applesauce. The topping contrasts perfectly with a sweet and crunchy cinnamon sugar coating. We’d say they make a great afternoon snack, but there’s no way you’ll have leftovers! They’re that good!
Bust out the mini muffin pan again for these pancake muffins! These breakfast bites are perfect for on-the-go mornings. They taste just like pancakes but they bake up in the oven instead. Mix in some chocolate chips for a sweet surprise. These muffins are almost too cute to eat. Almost.
Nothing says breakfast time quite like a blueberry muffin. This recipe works well with fresh or frozen blueberries. Use whatever you have on hand or whatever is on sale at the grocery store. This recipe also comes with an option sweet and tangy lemon glaze that is sure to get everyone asking for seconds.
The only thing complicated about this recipe is its name. Bisquick teams up with vanilla Greek yogurt for a moist and fluffy center. Plus, the cinnamon swirls together with brown sugar and chocolate throughout the entire coffee cake. It definitely tastes just as good as it looks!
Bisquick Lunch & Dinner Ideas
Are you surprised to find lunch and dinner ideas in a list of Bisquick recipes? This burrito bake shows off just how versatile Bisquick actually is. This Mexican-inspired dish is fully customizable with any ingredients your family loves. Or you can spice things up with a toppings bar and let everyone customize their own meals.
What’s better than a taco bar? A taco casserole! Less mess, less clean up, and less wondering if everything will stay warm as people swing by for seconds (or thirds!). The Bisquick mix has a little more heft to it than tortilla chips which means you can pile on the toppings!
When I think of Bisquick recipes, I can’t help but think of cheeseburger pie. There’s something really nostalgic about this dish. It’s a kid-friendly meal, and you can easily substitute in ground turkey for ground beef. Depending on how many people you are serving, you might consider baking it up in a true 9-inch pie pan.
Homemade chicken pot pie seems like it takes forever. Not with this recipe! Not only can you make this dish up to two days in advance, you can also use your crock pot or Instant Pot.

If a little cheese is good, more must be better, right? This recipe combines both feta and Parmesan cheese and a generous helping of spinach. The lemon juice makes it really zesty and the spices make this meal unmistakably Greek.
Yes, you absolutely can make this recipe any time of year. But you must also bookmark it as the most delicious way to use up leftover turkey after the holidays. The cream base is made from scratch (no soup cans here!), and it really couldn’t be simpler.
Bisquick Side Dishes
Yes, this is a side dish. No, we won’t tell if you make a meal out of it. This casserole bakes up to a golden brown, giving it a delicious crunch. Plus, the green chilis give the dish a really interesting flavor profile.
19, Broccoli Puff
Steamed veggies, flaky crust, cheesy filing. It must take hours, right? Wrong. This broccoli puff recipe is full of serious shortcuts. Not only do you use Bisquick mix, but the veggies actually come from the frozen steam packs. Feel free to add other mix-ins, such as ham or turkey sausage too.
Serve these sausage balls as sides or appetizers. They come together in minutes and are deliciously bite sized. Serve them up with a variety of sauces in ramekins to let your family or your guests find their favorite flavor combo.
I’ll admit it. When it comes to corn fritters, I usually think of this as a treat when I’m dining out. They seem equal parts complicated and messy. Thankfully, this Bisquick recipe proves me wrong. The outside gets crispy and the inside stays tender. You’ll have them hot on your plate in a half an hour!
While this Bisquick side dish has a decidedly fall and winter taste, we wouldn’t fault you for making them all year. The pumpkin puree gets sweetened up just a bit with some honey for a truly fantastic–and different!–biscuit.
If drop biscuits aren’t already your favorite type of biscuit, these easy garlic ones will have you reconsidering.

We say dessert, you say brunch. You really can’t pick a bad time of day to serve these Bisquick cinnamon biscuits. They are plenty sweet and delicious on their own, but if you really want to get people debating if they’re worthy of being called a dessert, don’t skip the glaze! Whipping cream, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar combine to take these treats to the next level.
This is another one of our easy Bisquick recipes that will have you wondering if you should serve this for a special weeknight dessert or surprise your family and friends with it on a weekend brunch.

29. Easy Lemon Bars
I really love a sweet dessert, but there’s something truly magical about a treat that’s both tart and sweet. Enter the lemon bar. This refreshing dessert whips up quickly, and a pastry blender will make short work even faster.
We will spare you the full science lesson, but suffice to say that these ingredients separate into the tastiest layers you’ve ever seen. Bisquick blends together with chocolate, butter, eggs, and sugar. Once you’re done blending, pour it into a pie pan and prepare to be surprised and delighted when you see what comes out of the over.
A handful of ingredients combines to make the most scrumptious pudding cake. If you aren’t familiar with pudding cake, it’s a type of cake that borders on a souffle. The middle is sauce-like while the outside remains cake-like. One bite will win you over!
I promise that these brownies can go toe-to-toe (plate-to-plate?) with any brownie from your local bakery. The sweetened condensed milk and frosting will have people forgetting the fact that this dessert is yet another one of the best Bisquick recipes to try. Mix in pecans, chocolate chips, coconut, or anything else you like!
