Pillsbury Simply… Buttermilk Biscuit

Author: Healthnuttxo

I finally got around to trying these! It only took passing them a few times in the grocery store saying to myself, I really should get those. They look good. And then being distracted by the fact I needed to buy eggs or something else in the store and forgetting to buy them. HOWEVER, I finally bought them, cooked them, and ate them (ok not ALL of them…)

SO, here’s how one biscuit looked out of the oven. I broke it in half

These biscuits were light and fluffy, and absolutely delicious. They were a tad on the pasty side, but not overpowering. I certainly detected a buttermilk flavor which I thought was pleasant, and they had a salty flavor, which I actually really liked. I had 1 (ok… I had more than 1) with my dinner plain and thought they were just fine that way, but another person in my household had it with butter and seemed to enjoy them as well.

Overall, 4 stars. They are a tad high in saturated fat and sodium (330 mg) and have 0 grams of fiber per serving. However, not only delicious, but according to the package, also have “0g trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors, no artificial colors”. Sounds like my kind of biscuit!

What’s your favorite way to eat a biscuit? I’m pretty sure I like my plain, or with a little smear of butter!

1 biscuit is 100 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 2.5 grams of saturated fat, 15 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 3 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein.

Oh, yea. BISCUITS!

The people over at Marie Callender’s offered me to try some of their new mixes, like the All-Purpose Biscuit Mix. And the verdict? I’m sure glad I got to try them!

First off, these were really easy preparation. All I needed was a bowl, a spoon, the mix, and 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon of water (and a pan with some non-stick spray to bake them on!).

The mix was beige and crumbly in color. After adding the water, I ended up adding just a little bit more to make it easier to stir. I noticed these sort of lumps that were there, sort of like flakes, that I had to stir a little extra to get smoother. The dough became very sticky and pasty, and sort of reminded me of the cheese in a mozzarella cheese stick how it was sort of gooey when I transferred the batter from the spoon to the pan.

Here’s what they looked like after I scooped them on the pan.

While cooking, they smelled DELICIOUS. The bottom of the mix bag says “Restaurant Style” and I thought the same from the smell- I felt like I was sitting in a restaurant!

Here’s what they looked like after baking!

So what about the taste? DELICIOUS!! Even as is, with nothing on them! Fluffy and doughy, slightly salty, and just like a biscuit should taste. The back of the bag said to “serve warm with butter, honey or preserves”, so since I was having these with my dinner, I opted for a little butter. Divine!

Overall? These get 4 1/2 stars! I love how the mix makes 8 biscuits- I think that’s perfect for a family dinner! I also love that 1 biscuit (1/4 cup dry mix)  is only 100 calories! I was a little disappointed that there was no fiber per serving, but these were really good. I would certainly eat them again- I’m tempted to maybe add cinnamon and sugar if I ever make them again!

Do you like biscuits? What’s your favorite way to eat them? (and does anyone else spell biscuit with a q like bisquit? It was so hard for me to write this because I kept writing bisquit the whole time!!) If you’d like to answer, please leave a comment below! =)
