We have in the past used mountain house biscuits and gravy but would like to try actual biscuits.
Anybody got any good methods? Jello mold oven? Fry pan?
How about a good dry mix? Canned biscuits?

We have used Bisquick or other water only store bought mixes and they turn out well. You can fix them like pancakes or use 2 slightly different sized pans and just flip them. With a good sausage gravy it's ALL good!

Try the Biscuits with Jalapeno Gravy from Pack It Gourmet! They aren't very spicy but they are sooooo good.

Simple Bisquick mix, Southeastern Mills Country Gravy mix, powdered milk and water, home dried sausage.
Mix gravy and cook, adding sausage when hot.
Mix biscuit mix and bake in a pot lined with foil, with coals on top.

I'm quite fond of Jiffy Mixes and a JMO. Fun to bake cakes and brownies and all kinds of biscuits and muffins on my Dragonfly. Zatarins and Jiffy cornbread - mmmmm.

I'm curious as to how the sausage re-hydrated? Did you add extra water to the gravy or re-hydrate the sausage prior to adding it? Thanks!

I now buy from their online store - 12 (your selected assortment) for $6 plus about that in shipping do $1 per box. Have sometimes seen it gor less in supermarket but never full line. I use a lot of their pizza crust mix - makes good fry pan bread at a fraction of cost of cache lake.

Sausage was dried at home in my oven just like burger. I'm able to source very lean breakfast and Italian sausage. It's rehydrating in the pan next to the gravy mix, holding enough water to finish the gravy. When hot just mixed together to make the sausage gravy mix.
The look on my buddies face is statement to how well it turns out.

I use these as they don't require eggs or milk. Work great in the reflector oven. Bisquick Completes

+1 I hate the cleanup from making biscuits in the wilderness but we're never disappointed with the results from Bisquick completes in the reflector oven.

Also for the first time we made them in a covered cast iron pan while car camping this weekend... it was so windy we didn't want to have a campfire so we gave it a try. Turned out pretty good... a little doughy in the middle but otherwise awesome. Just need to adjust the cook time if we do it again.

are you able to mix them in a bag and pour them out?

Yes, I mix the powder and water in a sealable sandwich bag and squish it around with the seal closed to mix everything. Then I cut a corner off of the bottom of the bag and just squirt the amount of mix into the frying pan. No mess - just the way I like it.

I made biscuits and gravy this last week. I mixed up a box of Jiffy pizza crust mix in a Ziploc, of course I added too much water making a soup. I then added some Cajun shorelunch to thicken it up some. It was still fairly runny.
I made the sausage gravy and opened up a channel in the center of the pan, poured in the "dough" and covered the pan. I don't know how much longer I cooked it but when it was done it was kind of "biscuity" and it was delicious! I think the jiffy pizza crust is a great option.

We just take a gallon size ziplock freezer bag along to mix them up in.

May be a bit more cleanup but add just enough water to make a dough, for spoon drop biscuits. The complete mixes work great but so does the standard Bisquick mix and some powdered milk.

Oh I know I added too much water.... it was pretty accidental but it worked out. I think that I will cook them the same way next time too..... with less water of course

As far as the mix I just use the old standard Bisquick mix. Mix it in a large baggie and then form them into shape.

As far as the method of cooking them I have used many things. One way is a reflector oven made by Old Scout, a Coleman stove oven, backpacking oven, or a jello mold oven. They all will work for this mix.

Very easy to make and a crowd pleaser.

For biscuits n gravy I start rehydrating the sausage first- it takes a while. Then I add the Southwestern Mills gravy mix.

I cook the biscuits in a small nonstick pan. Maybe a touch of oil. Works great.
