When I first started making these 7up biscuits in 2013 I was shocked at how great they turned out. I am the person that can not make a southern biscuit for the life of me.
My next goal is to try and make breakfast biscuits. John is a huge fan of biscuits and gravy. He raves about his Mom's biscuits.
I really want to work on making biscuits and surprise him with them one morning. Do you have a biscuit recipe you love? I would love to hear about it.
For some reason, Biscuits and Croissants are 2 pastries I have not mastered making yet. I am setting the goal of making both of these in the next month. I will keep you up to date on how that goal goes.
I recently heard that these 7up Biscuits are also called Popeye's Biscuits in some areas.
This is a quick overview of the simple ingredients that you'll need to make an epic 7-Up Biscuits! Specific measurements and step by step instructions are included in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
Bisquick Baking Mix - We use regular Bisquick baking mix but these can also be made with Gluten Free Bisquick Mix. I love using Bisquick mix so you don't have to measure out the shortening, baking powder, salt, all purpose flour and so on!
Sour cream - Helps make these biscuits moist and soft. You won't taste the sour cream but trust me it makes an impact in the baking of these biscuits. Plain Greek Yogurt can be used also.
7 Up - The not so secret ingredient to these epic biscuits that creates amazing flavor.
Butter - What biscuit doesn't need a little butter in its life. We use unsalted butter but you can definitely use salted butter if you prefer.
Flour or extra baking mix so you can create a floured surface.
9-Inch Square Pan - This is the perfect size baking dish. You can also use a casserole dish
Pastry cutter - This works great to cut the sour cream into the biscuit mix. You can also use a fork and knife, or your fingers.
Large Mixing Bowl - We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It makes it easy to mix ingredients and keeps the mixing bowl steady on the counter.
Dough Scraper - The dough scraper works great for getting all the dough in a square.
Round Biscuit Cutter - If you want perfectly shaped biscuits you will want a biscuit cutter. I normally just cut the biscuits into squares with a knife. You can also use a cookie cutter to cut the biscuits.
How to make 7 up Biscuits
I've included complete instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post but here's a quick version.
Preheat the oven
Mix Sour cream into the Bisquick. Pour in the 7 up. Combine to form a soft dough
Sprinkle flour on a flat surface, pat dough into a square
Melt butter and pour into pan. Cut biscuits and place cut biscuits on top of melted butter
Bake until golden brown.
Preparation and Storage
Make Ahead – These can be made ahead of time just make sure to store them properly so they stay soft.
Storage – Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
Freezing/How to freeze – Once the biscuits have completely cooled wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer bag. They can be stored for up to 3 months.
How to reheat – If you are looking to warm them up the microwave is perfect. If you are heating them from frozen you will want to reheat them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes until warm.
Substitutions - You can use Sprite, Fresca, Ginger Ale instead of 7-Up. Stick with clear carbonated soda. We stick with regular soda instead of diet soda just because of the flavor.
If you can't find Bisquick in your area you can use a different pancake baking mix.
Vegetarian Option - This recipe is vegetarian
Vegan Option – We have not tried making this vegan but it should work with vegan butter and vegan sour cream.
Gluten Free - We suggest using gluten-free Bisquick.
Smaller Serving Size –The serving size can be changed in the recipe card below.
Make it Spicy – To make these spicy you can add in diced jalapenos or red pepper flakes.
Larger Group/More servings –This recipe can easily be doubled. Just make sure you use a larger pan or two pans.
