Beer in your biscuits? If you’re in a dorm, there’s no better way to use up the skunked beer from last night’s rager. This recipe, adapted from the back of the Bisquick box, combines all-purpose baking mix, cheddar—the yellow kind’s fine—and light beer. Bake up these biscuits, and you’ve almost got yourself a complete meal!

This recipe was featured as part of our story on dorm cooking.


  1. 1Heat toaster oven to 450°F. Mix together baking mix, beer, and cheddar cheese until just combined.
  2. 2Drop mixture by tablespoons onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake biscuits until bottoms are golden brown and tops are flecked light brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Brush with melted butter and serve.
