I am trying to widen my repetoire of meal options. The truth is, I buy the same things at the grocery store each week and we tend to eat the same meals. Part of my dilema is that Chuck is not here to enjoy the food and the girls have a minimalistic way of eating. Seriously, 2 chicken nuggets is about all Tristen would eat (not that I ever serve those around here).
So I thought I would try some new things (my nephews are coming for Thanksgving and I can only imagine that 1/4 of a cup of dry cereal wont fill them up like it would for Tissy). Here is the easy recipe for drop biscuits.
2 Cups freshly milled flour (hard white)
1 Tbs. baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup oil
1 cup milk
Mix together the dry ingredients, make a well in the middle. Combine oil and milk. Pour liquid into well and mix with the dry ingredients. Drop by scoop or spoon onto greased cookie sheet (or parchment paper). Bake at 425 for 10 min. Makes about 1 dozen.
This is the recipe from the Break Beckers book that I got with my mill. Because I am using fresh milled wheat, it has the added benefits of being a whole grain. While these were baking I cooked up some little sausage patties to go inside. Move over McDonald's sausage biscuit, same idea but better for you. Pretty hearty breakfast and very inexpensive. I think it would fill up any growing boy.
This morning, Tristen was my baking helper. We ended up making our biscuits big and only made 9 instead of 12. They were great for lunch with butter and jam.
Sorry my pictures are so fuzzy this time. Must have been poor lighting.
