7-Up Biscuits

Biscuits made with 7-up or Sprite
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.
Biscuits made with 7-up or SpriteI 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.

7-up Biscuits
  • 4 cups biscuit mix (aka Bisquick)
  • 1 cup lemon lime soda pop
  • 1 cup sour cream (I used Greek yogurt sour cream)
  • ½ cup melted butter
  1. Combine first three ingredients in a bowl (with a spoon).
  2. Scoop into greased cast iron skillet (or alternatively, pat out on a floured surface and cut into circles).
  3. Pour melted butter all over biscuits, making sure some gets down to the bottom of the pan.
  4. Bake 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until done.
  5. Serve warm

  1. >I'm def trying this!!!! Thanks for sharing! Reminds me of this Beer Cheese Soup I looove at a restaurant here. I just posted about garlic cheddar mini puff muffins last week at lauriesfoodfiles.blogspot.com – no I see I was missing an imp. ingredient – beer! We don't drink, so I'm glad you told us about the NA beer. I really appreciate the info! Blog Hugs!

  2. >Oh, how fun! I make beer bread sometimes, but this would be a nice take on that. These sound delicious for with a nice soup to me…

  3. This is genius! I can just imagine how light and fluffy these would be, thanks to the soda pop.
    I’m very jealous that you can get Greek yogurt sour cream… I haven’t seen that up here in Canada yet. (Though I tend to use non-fat Greek yogurt as a sub for sour cream most of the time. It’s a little tangier, but I actually like it that way.)

  4. Love that you made it in cast iron! That is a good inspiration and it makes me want to get in my kitchen right now, even though I spent the day there. I see myself eating these biscuits with bacon and cheese in the middle! 🙂
