Soft, buttery and perfect in every way, these 7 Up Biscuits made with Bisquick are just the thing that has been missing in your life. Baked in a pool of butter, these biscuits only have 3 other ingredients and are absolutely delicious. I’ve found my new go-to Biscuit Recipe!
Easy Biscuit Recipes
Last year, we published a recipe for our Quick and Easy Drop Biscuits. As a recipe website that focuses on Comfort Food, we feel that we should definitely a couple of really yummy bread and biscuit recipes. Having the right grain with your meal can really elevate to the next level. Whether it is for a sandwich, to dip in a soup or to sop up some juices on your plate, a good biscuit or roll is something that cannot be overlooked.
This is why, when I first tried these 7 Up Biscuits, I was so excited. How had I never had these before? It was life changing! In fact, sometimes these are called Popeye’s Biscuits because they are a great copycat version from the famous chicken restaurant! They have just about the identical taste and texture. I think I’ve found my new favorite biscuit recipe. And, they couldn’t be easier to make!
7 Up Biscuit Recipe Ingredients
When you use Bisquick, it just makes everything else so easy. For this 7 Up Biscuit recipe, you will only need 3 other things! And you probably already have them in your kitchen! Just combine all the ingredients, cut biscuits and let your oven do the rest of the work. For step-by-step instructions, check out the printable recipe card below. But here is what you’ll need to get started.
- BISQUICK – Bisquick Baking Mix! The ultimate shortcut! If you want to make these gluten free, you can use Gluten Free Bisquick.
- SOUR CREAM – To lighten up this recipe a bit, you can use Low Fat Sour Cream if you’d like.
- BUTTER – Salted or unsalted. Your choice.
- 7 UP – Or other lemon-lime soda. You can use Diet 7-Up if you’d like.
I think that one of my favorite parts of this recipe is that you place biscuits in the baking dish on top of melted butter. So, when they finish baking, the whole bottom of the bisquick has a crispy, buttery taste that I can’t even fully describe. They are amazing!
These are perfect to make for dinner. And then you’ll also have some left over for breakfast. You can either use them as a grab and go breakfast or make an egg, cheese and sausage biscuit out of them. I suggest the latter!
Notes, Tips and FAQs
- Be Gentle!- Be careful when folding the ingredients together. Knead them just enough so that all the bisquick is in contact with the Sour Cream and the 7 Up.
- Too Sticky?- Is the dough too sticky and hard to work with? Well, it is supposed to be very soft and sticky. Not like regular dough you may be expecting. So don’t panic. But don’t be afraid to use a little extra bisquick on your hands or on the counter to help out. This way you can easily pat dough and work with it as needed. You can also use all purpose flour.
- Does The 7 Up Make It Too Sweet?- I was wondering this as well. The answer is NO. I wouldn’t call this a “sweet” bread at all.
- Can I Make These Healthier?- You can try subbing out Low-Fat Sour Cream or even Greek Yogurt for the regular Sour Cream. I haven’t tried these with a diet soda, so I’m not sure what the result would be.
- Do I Have To Use 7 Up?- Any Lemon-Lime Soda will work, including Sprite. I’ve also heard that these are good when they are made with Ginger Ale. So go for it if that sounds good!
- How To Know When They Are Done- Your 7 Up Biscuits are done when they are golden brown on top.
- Serve Warm- I discovered that these biscuits are absolutely better when served warm, especially right out of the oven. But you can microwave the too.
- How Long Will These Biscuits Last?- About 1-2 days at room temperature in an airtight container, about 1 week in the fridge.
