We have a confession to make. We don’t often eat fast food (anymore), but when we get a craving for quick and easy food we always want fried chicken and biscuits from Popeyes. But with most things, we figured if we like it so much, we could find a recipe and make it ourselves.
So we did just that, and after a day of searching and looking through recipes, this is what we came up with. They didn’t rise as much as we would have liked so we added some additional proofing time (letting it get puffy), but they taste just like the biscuits from Popeyes, and honestly, much better.
- 4 Cups Bisquick Mix
- 3/4 Cup 7-Up (not diet)
- 1 Cup Sour Cream
- 4 Tablespoons of Salted Butter (melted)
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
In a medium bowl, using a wooden spoon, mix together, bisquick, 7Up, and sour cream in a bowl. Mix until everything is combined and starts to form a dough. Form into a ball, let it proof for 20-30 minutes.
Transfer the dough ball to a floured surface, and gently roll the dough out.
Brush the bottom of a baking stone or baking sheet with melted butter, place the biscuits on the stone or sheet. Brush the tops with the melted butter and put in the oven and bake for 11 minutes.
When the timer goes off, brush the biscuits with remain butter and cook for another two minutes. Remove from oven, cool and enjoy!
