It is finally time to move that pancake mix to the front of your cabinet. From baked goods to full on meals, Bisquick is much more useful than you think. According to My Baking Addiction, Bisquick consists of flour, fat, leavening, and salt that serves as a pre-made baking mix. The company advertises the product for breakfast foods, mainly pancakes, waffles, biscuits, and muffins.

Now, let's leave the breakfast world for a second. Bisquick also has you covered with dessert and dinner recipes that are all-purpose and delicious. Chicken Pot Pie, Double-Crust Pizza Casserole, Strawberry Shortcake, Banana Bread, and a Taco Bake are five recipes that you need to try. In case you are curious, also has pages of extra recipes that are not listed here, compiled by Betty Crocker (did someone say churros and chocolate chip cookies?). We are officially saving all of these dish recipes for meal prep Sundays.

Chicken Pot Pie

Looking for a meal with a short prep time? Look no further. This Chicken Pot Pie recipe from The Daily Meal can feed the whole family with only a five minute preparation time and a 30 minute cook time. Just use up that leftover chicken and grab some frozen vegetables, condensed cream of chicken soup, Bisquick, milk, and one egg. At 199 calories per serving, this recipe can feed up to six people. There you have it: an instant, stress-free, and comforting dinner.

Double-Crust Pizza Casserole

Yes, you read that right. A Double-Crust Pizza Casserole, also known as the meal of your dreams. This Taste of Home recipe is a little bit more complicated, but completely worth it. Start off with a large skillet that includes: ground beef, pizza sauce, and oregano. Then a combination of Bisquick, milk and egg will give you the dough that you want. This twist on pizza will definitely be a guest favorite, and only takes a total of 40 minutes.

Strawberry Shortcake

Never mess with classic dessert. Betty Crocker has the perfect Strawberry Shortcake recipe that complements your sweet tooth. The ingredients are simple: sliced strawberries, sugar, Bisquick, milk, melted butter, and heavy whipping cream. Bisquick acts as a biscuit that allows you to layer the dessert with sweetened strawberries and freshly whipped cream. If you are looking to impress some guests, this is an easy and aesthetically pleasing treat! They probably won't even know you used Bisquick, but the convenience is worth bragging about.

Banana Bread

The banana bread trend from last year is not over yet. Insanely Good Recipes has a moist Banana Bread made with Bisquick that is too tasty to refuse. The best kind of bananas to utilize are extremely overripe, to the point that the skin should be black. This allows the loaf to be super sweet and moist, and is a great way to use those bananas you forgot about! If you don't have overripe bananas, here are some tips on how to make them ripen faster.

Taco Bake

Taco Tuesday just got a lot more interesting. According to, this Bisquick Taco Bake recipe serves eight people and takes about an hour and a half to make. Cook ground beef and dry seasoning mix with tomato sauce and corn like you would for a normal taco. Instead of a tortilla or taco shell, stir in the Bisquick mix over the beef mixture for one massive dinner. Feel free to customize your bake with all of your favorite taco ingredients not mentioned in the recipe.

Now, it's time to get creative in the kitchen with these five Bisquick recipes. Who knew pancake mix could be so useful?!
