What do 7-UP biscuits go well with?

When it comes to bread and rolls, they can honestly go with just about anything. They are versatile enough to be a great filler for almost all of your meals. And with these 7-Up biscuits, you will WANT them to be at all of your meals.

Popular dishes you normally see bread paired with would be pastas, casseroles, seafood and meat dishes and so much more. A couple of my favorite recipes that go well when served with 7-Up biscuits would have to be Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon, this is a warm beef stew that pairs perfectly with biscuits that just melt in your mouth. There is also Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup that is complete with 7-Up biscuits. Stews and soups are definitely great meals to pair with this recipe because there is nothing better than having a warm meal with bread to boot! 

Can you make them ahead and store them?

Absolutely. If you are trying to plan ahead or know that you’ll have minimal time when it comes to your meal you are able to make these biscuits beforehand. The tricky part may be storing or packaging them correctly because you do not want them to get stale. Here are a couple of tips and reminders when it comes to storing these biscuits.

  • Make sure to let biscuits cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes before storing
  • Once cooled, store biscuits in an airtight container, resealable bags work as well just make sure to squeeze out as much as possible when sealing them.
  • You can refrigerate biscuits with perishable items up to 1 week
  • If you are just keeping them at room temperature they can be stored for 1-2 days
  • If you decide to freeze them, wrap tightly in heavy duty aluminum foil or freeze wrap  to prevent biscuits from drying out or losing flavor
  • Properly wrapped biscuits that are frozen can last up to 2-3 months.

How Do you Reheat Frozen Biscuits?

Frozen biscuits are an easy solution when you are trying to plan meals out ahead or are delivering meals to those in need. Just because they were frozen does not mean they need to lose their fresh out of the oven taste. Here are steps to follow when it comes time to reheat your biscuits.

  • Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Next, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange the biscuits on top
  • Then bake the biscuits until they are hot, normally this will take about 12-15 minutes.
  • Top the biscuits with butter.
  • Serve and enjoy!

You can also choose to add honey, jam, or any other spread you like on your bread as well. These biscuits go with just about anything. 

Can they be made Without Bisquick?

Say it is later in the evening you have your main dish all put together and it is almost done cooking and you realize that biscuits would go perfectly with it. You have this recipe all ready to go and then see that you are all out of Bisquick. Not a problem! There is a simple substitution you can do so that you can still make delicious 7-Up biscuits. 

All you need is :

  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 1 cup of vegetable shortening, cubed

This will make a total of 7 cups of Bisquick, so plenty to use if you need to make multiple batches!

    1. That sounds great! Thank you so much for sharing! I am so glad that you have found recipes that you love. Thank you for sharing and following along with me! XOXO

  1. You’re never to old to learn, I’m in my 70’s and came across these magic biscuits. Think I will try and see what everyone are saying these biscuits!
    Thanks for sharing..

  2. These biscuits are awesome. My mom always rolled out her dough or patted it to make a large piece. She would melt some butter to spread on the top of the dough, and would fold it over, press lightly, and cut out the biscuits. The end result was easy pop-open biscuits ……no cutting required. Also, there are many ways you can alter the recipe to go with other meals, too.

    Instead of using sour cream use cottage cheese. Blend it until it is smooth. You can add some dill seed or celery seed to it, too. The variations are endless.

  3. I’ve made these for years. The only thing that’s different, the original recipe called for club soda at room temperature. For those watching their sugar intake, club soda is much better. Any fizzy soda will work if you want to switch out the type you use.

    1. Make sure you work the dough as little as possible. Do not knead it, but mix it with a fork until it just comes together. It will be very loose, but just push it together and plop it into a buttered baking dish. Pat the top smooth and score it with a pizza roller if desired. You can also bake it like that as one giant biscuit and slice after baking. Another thing I do is to put about a teaspoon of the melted butter in each well of a muffin tin and bake them like that. Very crispy outside and soft and fluffy inside.

  4. These are so crispy outside and so soft inside when made in a cast iron skillet. They could possibly be the best biscuits EVER!!!!!

  6. These are so Good. My Family loved them wants me to make them all the time!!!! Will be a Regular around here so easy and so very good!

  7. I do so apologize but you suggested that I use 1/4 cup of butter. I don’t know where to use the butter for the 7 up soda biscuits made from bisquick. Please email me asap. Thank You So Much !!!

    1. The butter is for the bottom of the pan. You melt the butter put it in the pan and then the finished dough on top of the butter.

  8. I love these. I make them all the time, but add 1 tablespoon of sugar to the bisquick. We like them just a touch sweeter.

  9. I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. Wow, amazing! This is now my go to recipe for biscuits. I made them last night, but I had no 7up on hand. I used Mountain Dew instead and they came out just fine. I’m thinking any light colored soda will do. With my husband loving Mt. Dew, it’s always on hand.

  10. I make these a LOT!!
    BUT…I don’t roll/cut…I just melt the butter in the pan, and spread the dough over it, and bake according to the directions!! just as yummy and even easier!! 🙂
