These are so quick and easy to make. Warm with a slice of ham, they make a great sandwich. Warm with a little butter, they make a great snack. I like biscuits warm. Anyway, the original recipe for these biscuits has been around forever. You will see a similar recipe in most community cookbooks. The surprise ingredient is lemon-lime soda pop.
I have recently discovered Greek yogurt sour cream. Because I always try to buy reduced fat dairy (except cheese), I was excited to try this new product. It tastes just like sour cream, but has all that added protein from the Greek yogurt. I used that instead of regular sour cream this time with great results. I also used homemade Biscuit Mix. I haven’t tried it with my gluten free biscuit mix, so I cannot say how it will turn out, but I am throwing it out there for my gluten free readers. I watched my family eat these while sighing with jealousy.
You don’t have to make these in a cast iron skillet, I just like the extra crispiness that the cast iron gives the biscuits.
Frugal Tip: In a recipe like this, it doesn’t matter if you use name brand soda or not. Save up to 50% by buying generic/store brand lemon lime soda for this recipe. If you don’t like the taste of no-name pop, use the leftovers in a punch or other flavored drink.
