A perfect companion to homemade soup is homemade bread or rolls. But who has the time to bake homemade bread? Luckily, I found this recipe that is based on Bisquick. It doesn't have to rise, so prep time is just minutes, and it bakes up in another 25. By the time you fix a cup of herbal tea and warm up the soup, the whole house smells good and you know it's time to eat.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
grease a round 8" cake pan
In a medium bowl, mix:
- 1 slightly beaten egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 cup wine (sauterne)
- 2 t. dried minced onion
- 2 cups Bisquick
- 1 T. sugar
- 1/2 t. dried dill
- 1/2 t. oregano
- 1/2 t. basil
Pour into the greased cake pan.
Sprinkle 1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (I like the extra sharp) over the mixture and bake for about 25 minutes. Serve with butter.
If any of the bread is left over, which I doubt, toast it, cube it and use it in salads.
What are your favorite herbs to add to bread? Do you make herb butter for bread? Please share.
