"7Up Biscuits"

Recipe from "Cranberry Manor Bed and Breakfast"

This recipe was provided to us by our guests that had them at another B&B. The recipes is only “4” ingredients ( I added some optional items also). They come out so buttery and fluffy and light.  We have been making these ever since.  My version below is for a large crowd of biscuits for our sausage gravy.

I changed the recipe a little bit to keep the process simple.  Instead of doing a rolled biscuit I make these in a 9 x 13 glass baking dish.  I let them cool for a few minutes and then cut them along the indentations.  They get plated and smothered and covered with our homemade Sausage Gravy, scrambled eggs and cheese.  Click here for Sausage Gravy Recipe.

*See below optional items that I have added for a more cheddar bay biscuits flavor which adds another layer of flavor to the sausage gravy and biscuit breakfast.  

Prep time: 10 minutes (Rolling out time not included)

Cook Time: About 30 Minutes or until Golden Brown

Serves: 10 – 12


6 Cups of Bisquick Baking Mix

1 1/2 Cups Sour Cream

1 1/2 Cups 7UP or Sprite or Lemon Lime Soda Freshly Opened!

1 Cup Melted Butter

*Optional Items – I have been adding in 1 Cup of cheddar cheese,  Tsp garlic powder and about 1/8 Cup of Dried Green Spring Onions (litehouse brand).  You could add fresh sliced green onions.  

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Melt butter .  Pour ½ Cup of the melted butter into 9×13 glass dish or deep pan and coat pan evenly with the butter.

In large bowl “gently” mix Bisquick with sour cream using a pastry blender or large spoon. Add your additional Optional items at this point and blend well.  Then add soda and gently finish mixing.  Dough will be very soft and wet.  Tip:  You don’t want to over mix the dough or it won’t rise.  You want it to be nice and light and fluffy so use freshly opened soda. 

Pour dough into the buttered pan and spread evenly in the pan. Brushing butter on top of the dough will also help make it easier to spread around the pan.  Generously brush the top of the dough with about ¼ cup of melted butter reserving ¼ cup of melted butter. 

Bake for about 15 minutes. Pull biscuits and brush tops of biscuits with remaining reserved butter.  Place back in oven and finish baking about another 5 – 10 minutes or until golden brown on top.    

Let cool for about 10 minutes. 

Cut into servings sizes you want.  

If using for sausage gravy and biscuits I also slice across the middle to separate the top and bottom of the biscuit and place them at an angle laying on top of one another and then cover with the sausage gravy.
