We’ve got a confession to make: we’ve been keeping a secret. About two years ago, I discovered gluten-free Bisquick in the United States. I’ve been holding off writing about it, hoping that it would come to Canada. I recently asked the folks at General Mills Canada (who distribute regular Bisquick) and they said they have no plans yet to bring it to us.
If you can get your hands on some of this delicious stuff, buy several boxes. There are a number of recipes right on the box, and more at the official U.S. Betty Crocker site. I’ve used their Ultimate Chicken Fingers breading for a ton of different things, including mozzarella sticks and tilapia.
Here’s another batter that you can use for onion rings, chicken wings, and fried fish. (It’s my dad’s secret recipe so shhhh!) Mix half a cup of gluten-free flour with half a cup of gluten-free Bisquick. Stir in about a cup of lemon-lime soda from a can or gluten-free beer. Add flour or water as necessary to get a good consistency.
If you like gluten-free Bisquick, be sure to fill out the feedback form at the General Mills Canada website or give them a call at 1-800-767-5350 and ask them to bring it to Canada!
