Make Your Own Bisquick

You can make your own baking mix for a fraction of the cost of buying bisquick, and avoid the additives in the commercial version.

You need:
5 cups flour
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups instant nonfat dry milk
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar

Sift together, and blend well.

Put in an airtight container, label, and store in a cool dry place (the fridge or the freezer work well). Store up to 3 months, longer if in the freezer.

Now you can make pancakes, waffles, biscuits, or an impossible pie:
Impossible Cheeseburger Pie
1 lb lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
or use one bag of "meat mixture" from the recipe posted earlier this month.
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup baking mix
1 cup milk
2 eggs
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9 inch pie pan with cooking spray. Cool beef and onion over med-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain (or use meat mixture). Stir in salt. (Omit salt if you are using meat mixture.)
Spread in pie pan; sprinkle with cheese.
Stir all remaining ingredients in medium bowl with wire whisk or fork until blended. Pour into pie plate.
Bake about 25 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
