Mr. Bran Bakes with Bisquick: Biscuits

Mr. Bran, top chef, has decided to help me out for Vegan Mofo by offering up some of his favorite recipes! Now, as we know thanks to Calpernia Addams, there is no shame in Bisquick. So each Thursday Mr. Bran will don his wee chef hat and mix up some Bisquick breakfast in the kitchen while I laze about on my chaise and get lightly fanned by the pool boy.

Today's recipe is for garlic cheeze biscuits:
Mix
2 c Bisquick
3/4 c soymilk
1/2 c shredded cheese (I used some of my 5 pound Daiya supply)

Drop by spoonfuls and bake at 450 for 8-10 minutes.

Then take 2 T margarine and mix with 1/4-1/2 t garlic powder and brush over the top of the hot biscuits. Eat while in the company of the pool boy. Or Mr. Bran.

Verdict: These are pretty good. Very light and airy, so a bit different than the biscuits I am used to. But good.

Hi Mr. Bran, come and bake for me! We don't have Bisquick, so make sure to bring a box. Thank you!

Here are some bisquick pot pie recipes you should veganize for mr Bran to make.

He can chew through a bag of mixed veggies, but he might need some help making a veggie gravy to replace the condensed soup, or BCG's vegan condensed soup replacements. May as well use the marmite. In place of the chicken I have used TVP chunks but I'm sure a can of beans or frozen and marinated tofu or seitan would also be excellent. Its tasty, too!

This picture makes me laugh every time. I think you should start an entire blog for Mr. Bran's Bisquick adventures.
