And I'm not talking about the kind you might put on your mashed potatoes, although it'd be nice to be able to do that too-always winds up turning out lumpy and not really tasty. But here I'm referring to that fabulous gravy on biscuits and gravy (would not be as good as the stuff at Great Harvest-man that is fantastic!), which would compliment my accidental biscuits well! Yeah, I know it's just Bisquick and two other ingredients but it was more challenging when I got into it. First off we did not have milk or butter at the house, so I used almond milk and lemon juice from a recipe I found online, modified to fit what I had on hand, and the results were so much better than I would have thought. For starters, the lemon juice I had did not seem to be doing anything to "thicken" the almond milk like they said it would. Then my gooey, sticky mess looked nothing like the pretty dough ball in their photo. Long story short, I tried to cut them like it said and get them on baking sheet but I was really just making a mess (which I cleaned up-thank you very much), so I slopped it on the sheet and separated the best I could manage and hoped for the best-which I think I got!
Rocky's Accidental Vegan Biscuits Recipe:
2 and 1/4 cups Bisquick
2/3 Cup Almond Milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Wash Hands. Put the lemon juice in the almond milk, stir and let it set for a few minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Make a volcano crater in middle of Bisquick. Give the milk-lemon juice another few stirs and pour into center of your Bisquick volcano, but stand back and wear goggles as it will explode!!! Ha-just kidding. Close your eyes and stick one hand in the mixture and kind of gently blend it together, but I guess not too much-just enough to get all that nasty goo all over your hands, arms, and clothes. Now take one of those dough roller sheets or if you can't find it because nobody ever puts anything back where it belongs-you can use a sheet of parchment paper or just a nice clean, flat surface. Sprinkle it with some more Bisquick and slap that sticky pile on it, then get some Bisquick on your clean hand and use it to pat down that dough into about a half inch thick rectangle. Flour up some sort of cutting device and try to cut into squares. yes, squares-doesn't matter because it won't work! After you give up, take the sloppy mess an plunk it on the un-greased baking sheet. Pry apart as best you can and put in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until a light brown. Let them cool a few minutes and enjoy with the butter you don't have...or some honey which actually was a better fit! And I do think they would be incredible with Biscuits and Gravy! It's that simple-kind of. If you did it just as I described above, they should look a bit like odd-sized lumpy croissant.
I should point out I did not want to make biscuits in the first place, but now am glad I did! Enjoy!
