Pancake mix: coming to a dinner plate near you

Friday and Saturday mornings in the Townhouse Complex are filled with the smell of breakfast foods. Understandbly so, this happens in the late morning to early afternoon. But once all the weary partiers arise, nothing quells the pains of a hangover better than a stack of pancakes, scrambled eggs and some bacon.

And what better to aid in the preparation of said meal than a box of pancake mix.

Well, it may be a weeknight, but go grab that box. I’ve got two one delicious and quick recipes that can be prepared with that mix, sans maple syrup: cheesy garlic biscuits like the ones served at Red Lobster!

Cheesy Garlic Biscuits [from Joyful Abode, with alterations from this one at Allrecipes]

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Farenheit and coat a coating of nonstick cooking spray on a cookie sheet.

In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of pancake/biscuit mix with 1 to 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese and half a teaspoon of garlic powder.

Mix to combine with a spoon.

Then, add 2/3 cup of milk. Stir to combine.

The dough will be very sticky and quite stiff. If you missed the gym this morning, keep at it with the spoon. Or you can get messy and dive in with your own two hands.

Using two spoons, put scoops of dough (about twice the size of a golf ball) onto the baking sheet. Pop them in the oven and be ready to take them back out in 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave with 2 teaspoons of oregano and 1 teaspoon of garlic salt.

I used the last of my garlic salt in the dough, so I substituted one clove of fresh, chopped garlic instead. They still tasted delicious.

After 10 minutes, remove the biscuits. Using a pastry brush (if you have one) or a spoon, put a little bit of the butter mixture on each. Put them back in the oven for another 5-6 minutes, or until they’re golden brown.

Remove and enjoy!
