From the Bisquick Cookbook

This is the second recipe from the Bisquick cookbook that we have tried. We were both excited about this one, as it just looked so good. While not hard to make, it did not turn out at all. It was oily on top and the dough didn’t cook evenly. The bottom was done but the top and middle were still really dough-y. It was like the oil had soaked in and made the dough not cook properly. The sun dried tomatoes were also still hard even though we followed the instructions on how to re-hydrate them. They definitely need longer than 10 minutes in the boiling water. We both ate a few bites and did not want to eat anymore. So this was the first recipe on the blog that we ended up throwing away.

In other words, don’t make this recipe as-is! However, we did think that the flavors were pretty good. You could take a nice loaf of Italian or French bread, cut it open long ways, and put the feta/pepper/spices/garlic/oil mixture on top, bake it, and have a nice side bread dish. We also thought that mixture would go great with chicken and pasta mixed in.

We have looked through the Bisquick booklet several times and see nothing else of interest. We won’t be cooking recipes with Bisquick anymore except pancakes, waffles, and cheddar biscuits, which are usually printed on the outside of the box. So cookbook-let, into the donate pile with you!
