I don't know about you,
but there are many days when I have a hectic afternoon and we are either out of bread, or there wasn't time to bake bread and I want something yummy to serve for dinner with a bowl of soup, salad, or, a pasta dish.
These 2 recipes have saved many a day for me and they are
throw together VERY quickly!!
Besides the meals listed above, they are also both great served
with a smoothie and the biscuits are wonderful served for breakfast...my favorite thing to do with the biscuits is to enjoy them with butter and a drizzle of honey, or a spoonful of jam.. mouth watering DELICIOUS!
(here for great tip for breadsticks)
We have even made up the biscuits and put gravy over them, or made a mock KFC dinner.
However, they are served,
they are always yummy, yummy, yummy!
Yummy Bread Sticks1 ½ cups warm water
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp. powdered milk
1 Tbsp yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
4 cups flour
Mix together and knead for 5 minutes in your Kitchen Aid (or by hand)
Roll onto greased sheet.
Cut into bread stick strips.
Let rise 30 minutes.
Spread generously with melted butter and garlic powder, parsley flakes and grated cheese.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
These are another perfect compliment
to homemade soups and chili.
BUTTERMILK BISCUITS(really easy and really good)
2 cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
3 Tablespoons butter
2/3 cup buttermilk
Sift together dry ingredients.
Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
Add buttermilk all at once.
Stir lightly with fork.
Knead gently on lightly floured board.
Roll ½ inch thick.
Cut with 3 inch round cutter.
Place on baking dish with biscuits touching.
Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 or until lightly browned.
TIDBIT...if for some reason you don't have any buttermilk you can always add 1 Tbsp of vinegar or lemon juice to each cup of milk and let it stand for 5 minutes to "Sour" and you will have buttermilk to add to your recipes.
Enjoy adding some yummy-ness to dinner-time, lunch-time, breakfast-time or ANYTIME for your family!
